Girl Talk (Posted Oct 28th/2016)

On the afternoon of October 21st, Blessed Cardinal Newman’s very own Girl Talk Chapter sat with Katie Zeppieri, the founder of Girl Talk, for a meeting.  During this meeting, the girls talked about everything -- from what our Newman Girl Talk Chapter wants to do as a family for the school, to the pressures of being young women in today’s secular society.  Katie was introduced to our talking pieces, an important part of our Girl Talk family, where we only speak if we have the talking piece (it happened to be a stuffed tiger!).  At this time, discussions that usually are not talked about were brought up.  Everyone was open as always, which led to Katie’s understanding of our group, and how issues to explore are brought up.  Katie spread her wisdom and knowledge upon the young ladies, and shared stories for the girls to learn from.  Katie is such an inspiration, humble, and we are extremely grateful that she made time to not only meet as a group, but also offered to talk to her personally about any other questions or comments.  Overall, the meeting was awesome, and Newman’s Girl Talk family is looking forward to meeting with Katie Zeppieri in the near future!​
