“The main thing I want to say to everyone here is thank you–thank you for making us who we are today, thank you for building this amazing community in which we have so much to celebrate.” -Girls Write Now Founder & Executive Director, Maya Nussbaum
Whether you raised a glass with us from the heights of Times Square, or you cheered from afar, we were so grateful for your support in successfully launching our landmark 15th year at our September 20th Party. It was a truly electrifying night, and we have photos and video to prove it! Check out mentor/mentee stars Najaya and Anuja who shared their story and original writing.
A special thank you to SWIFT for hosting us in their magical space, and to our sponsors SWIFT Corporate Social Responsibility Program and EILEEN FISHER. We also want to thank our generous friends at Reuters, Young to Publishing Group, photographer Wesley Thompson, videographer Dave Shuff, and our tireless Board, staff, and volunteers who made the event possible.
