Michelle Obama’s ‘Let Girls Learn’ initiative will not end according to a White House Spokeswoman

Published

Political Editor – LeNora Millen

Amid controversy surrounding Michelle Obama’s female education initiative, The State Department and the White House deny CNN reports that the program was ending.

A White House spokeswoman told CNN on Monday that “There have been no changes to the program and none have been authorized.”  Citing an internal memo, allegedly sent to Peace Corps employees, CNN reported earlier in the day that the White House would not continue with Michelle Obama’s ‘Let Girls Learn’ program, which helps girls in developing countries seek educational opportunities.

In response to an email allegedly sent from the White House, Sheila Crowley, the acting director of the Peace Corps, stated the following, “Moving forward, we will not continue to use the ‘Let Girls Learn’ brand or maintain a stand-alone program.”  In an email addressing the confusion surrounding the ‘Let Girls Learn’ program, the White House refused to speak further on the internal memo, nor did they provide details on the future of the initiative.

The ‘Let Girls Learn’ program provides a platform to focus on Peace Corps’ strength in community development, and have been described as a beacon of light for volunteers around the globe.  Former First Lady Michelle Obama launched the “Let Girls Learn” education program in 2015.  One of the strengths of the program was not just about investing more money in educating girls; the program also focused on changing the perception of how women and girls are viewed and valued around the world.

Author Matt Patterson Releases his New Book "We Got This!"

NEW RELEASE LAUNCH ALERT!

This week my Facebook friend Matt Patterson will be releasing his new book – WE’VE GOT THIS! – as a #FREE #Kindle download on WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY – MARCH 28 & 29.

We expect people to come to work and be “normal.” Well, what if their circumstances aren’t “normal”?

 

 

 

 

This book IS NOT LONG. If organizations and leaders need a 250-page book on how to treat people who are battling a personal crisis – then something needs to change. This is a how-to guide that leaders can keep handy in a desk drawer or on the corner of their desk for when that time comes when a team member lightly taps on your door or sends you an email/text and asks – “Can we talk?”

I sincerely hope that you will find some value in this effort. It wasn’t easy.

I appreciate each of you and for your amazing support. And besides – IT’S FREE!

True Story of Hope and Perseverance, Field of Hearts by Marian Klooster

 

How many times have we seen people with chronic medical conditions persevere as an example to us all?

Having a chronic medical condition will many times lead to depression, anxiety and/or uncertainty about the future.

The story of Marian Klooster is one of hope, strength, perseverance, and success despite her chronic medical condition. Marian is from Willemstad, sunny island Curacao. In 2011, she lost her son a week after his birth due to a pregnancy complication.

She was devastated and depressed, but she didn’t give up! Despite the several challenges she had to overcome in her life, Marian was able to rise above it and succeed. She is an Amazon International Best-Selling Author due to her book, Field of Hearts. She started writing her book to cope with her emotions, and it didn’t take long to finish and get ready for publishing!

Marian received guidance and support from her book coach, Kenny Jones. Kenny is from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is an Amazon International Best-Selling Author due to his book, The Comeback Kid.

Marion’s book debuted this year in the Top Best-Selling Books in 4 Different Countries in its category. Most of the Sales were from Curaçao and the Netherlands. She donates 10% from

“Field of Hearts is an incredibly emotional experience. Mari bares her soul into each page of the book. Once I started reading the book, I could not put it down. Such a brave and bold move to share her story. Learning about becoming an Entrepreneur is one thing, but watching Mari’s Journey in this book is a new level!

‘Overcoming’ Torrential Waters by Cedric Nettles

Published

on

Torrential Raine is on the way!

Torrential Waters was my hard hitting, emotional journey of a ‘gifted’ young man coping with new found fame and a very low opinion of himself. I shared my childhood of having a poor self image and being bullied. I also shared the power of God’s hands on you, and His ability to show favor on your life, even when you don’t think you are ready. I laugh , because


at times I feel I am living Torrential Waters in some respects now. You will relate as well after you finish reading.

 

I don’t pull punches in Torrential  Waters, because life does not. This piece is by Chrystan Johnson and expresses  what she felt after reading Torrential Waters. We all have to know we have a purpose to our pain. We have an assignment, something we have to do before we take that last breath. That one thing you think that does not matter serves a higher purpose. I want to encourage everyone to go as hard as you can in this life, to grow, to serve, to be all you are called to be.

 

I was honored to read this review, this sums it up

Excellent read! Bought the book, but due to some medical/eye problems, could not read it for a few months. Finally got that fixed (!) and finished Nettles’ “Torrential Waters” within a day and a half! One of those books you just don’t want to end! Wonderful insight into faith, family, relationships, forgiveness of others as well as one’s self, hope for the future and the ever-enduring spirit of the human soul. I highly recommend for readers of any age. I hope Mr. Nettles has more (perhaps a series?!), but if not a series about this character, than at least more books planned for the future. The author’s own story itself is book-worthy; I personally would love to see him write an autobiography on how much he’s overcome in his own life. Meanwhile – buy the book! You won’t be disappointed.-Jan Harvin
