It’s official! My mom Principal Nadia Lopez of Mott Hall Bridges Academy, in Brownsville Brooklyn, is the 2015 BLACK GIRL ROCKS Change Agent Recipient. On Saturday, March 28, at the NJ PAC in Newark, New Jersey, great women like Erykah Badu, Jada Pinkett Smith, Dr. Helen Gayle, Ava DuVernay, and Cicely Tyson were honored for excellence. I am so proud to know that all the hard work that goes into running a school and sleepless nights was recognized by Miss Beverly Bond.
My mom looked beautiful and her speech made everyone in the auditorium give her a standing ovation, even the First Lady Michelle Obama. She is intelligent, strong, and caring. #BlackGirlsRock
I meet three of my favorite celebrities, Regina King, Jill Scott, and Tatyana Ali who are role models positive role models for young girls my age.
I can’t believe it was almost 4 years ago, when I first met Tatyanna Ali at Black Girls Rock. She was being honored with an award that night the awards was held in New Jersey.
