Ashley Stewart Scholarship!

We know that college life can be filled with tons of memories, friends and new chapters but it can also give us a headache when it comes to finances.  This is one of the many reasons C.O.R.E Mag is excited to celebrate with Ashley Stewart as they award  a total of $20,000 in scholarships to empowering young women striving for higher education!

The scholarship announcements are a part of the nationwide ‘Finding Ashley Stewart 2017’ finale.

It will be held in Brooklyn where actor Boris Kodjoe will be hosting and Grammy-nominated vocal group En Vogue is set to perform! The evening will be filled with a variety of star-studded celebrity guests + judges, including Nicole Ari Parker.

Snap, snap! Poetry Place

Journey To Justice

The world is a beautiful place and I love it.
 I hope there’s a better way so I’ll
 be above it.
 Black people need justice. Donald Trump
Can’t touch this.
Black people are running
Cause Donald Trump came hunting.
The teachers don’t be yelling
If I hit Trump with a melon.

White and black are in a boxing ring
But the future brings a beautiful thing.
To be free instead of being on a string.

I’m in pain when the world change,
But I can do something with my skills
When I’m going uphill.

– Sanai, age  12

Bold From Brownsville

My name is Jamira.
I come from America,
Born and raised in Brownsville.

In Brownsville, where life is upsetting for some.

My parents too come from Brownsville.

My dad was a young rapper
Trying to make it big.

My mom took care of two kids.

I am funny, loving, and kind.

I believe that people can change.

Someday, I will be a big doctor or lawyer. 

I am a strong young hero
Nobody can bring me down
Cause I’m black.
I am proud of my African American culture. 

-Jamira, Age 11
