March is Women's History Month! It's time to celebrate who we are in this world. We have to learn how to love ourselves, take care of ourselves, be proud of who we are, and above all stand strong as independent women. We are mothers, sisters, wives, aunts, and friends. The following is a poem  by one of the best influential woman living in our age, Maya Angelou.

                               PHENOMENAL WOMAN
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

 I hope all the ladies reading this poem can take pride from being a woman. We are intelligent,beautiful, compassionate, strong-willed, independent goddesses. As such, we should behave properly with manners, never behaving as someone who we're not. Never try to fit in because we are unique. Never try to be superficial because beauty comes from within. Never settle for less because we're worth more than all the diamonds in the world. SO LADIES, BE PROUD OF BEING BEAUTIFUL WOMEN!

The Newark campus has different  activities going on for the ladies on campus! So please attend!

I hope everyone is trying to do their best this quarter! I know it gets tough towards the end of the quarter and we all tend to slack but keep going cus there is just 3 MORE WEEKS LEFT

                 TILL NEXT TIME,GUYS!
