International Women's Day: Barbie Strikes With 19 Dolls of Real Inspiring Women

Look who decided to get on the right side of history after 58 years of gracing us with dolls that have unrealistic body, hair, and facial features expectations! It’s Barbie, y’all! After surveying 8,000 mothers that were concerned about their daughters playing with regular Barbies that in no way resemble reality in their shape or form, the company decided to release a brand new line of 19 Barbie dolls of real life inspiring women figures in celebration of International Women’s Day. 

“Girls have always been able to play out different roles and careers with Barbie and we are thrilled to shine a light on real-life role models to remind them that they can be anything,” said Lisa McKnight, senior vice president and general manager of Barbie, in a recent news release.

Each badass doll comes with its own catalogue to educate kids about why each of these women deserves to be celebrated by society and by the whole world. 

1. Chloe Kim, Snowboarding Champion 

2. Frida Kahlo, Fine Artist 

3. Patty Jenkins, Filmmaker 

4. Nicola Adams Obe, Boxing Champion 

5. Ibtihaj Muhammad, Fencing Champion

6. Bindi Irwin, Conservationist 

7. Amelia Earhart, Aviation Pioneer 

8. Hui Ruoqi, Volleyball Champion 

9. Ashley Graham, Model and Body Activist

10. Katherine Johnson, NASA Mathematician and Physicist 

 

11. Misty Copeland, Principal Ballerina 

12. Helene Darroze, World Renowned Chef 

13. Sara Gama, Soccer Player 

14. Martyna Wojciechowska, Journalist

15. Gabby Douglas, Gymnastics Champion

16. Xiaotong Guan, Actress and Philanthropist 

17. Ava Duvernay, Film Director 

18. Yuan Yuan Tan, Prima Ballerina

19. Leyla Piedayesh, Designer and Entrepreneur

My only complaint would be that a lot of these dolls need to be more accurate in regards to body shape. Some of these fantastic women have curves, while the dolls that represent them are so obviously skinny.

I know I’m an adult, but I would totally collect these!

Good news to all the millenniums out there, your favorite childhood brand the Jonas Brothers are getting back together, and we can feel young once again.

It’s been six years since the brothers have split up; so each of them can do his own thing, six years ago since they have devastated the hearts of many young girls and now they’re making it up for them.

The rumors first started swirling since January 2018 when the JoBros reactivated their Instagram account. Now, according to several US Weekly sources, the rumors are turning to reality. They are however, changing their name to JONAS.

Yet another confirmation came from The Sun, as they announced, “After enjoying solo music success and taking time to work on passion projects, they feel that now is the right time to get back together.”

The Sun also claims that they are heading to London to work on an upcoming project, as well as releasing a documentary soon alongside new music.

Of course, with no official statements from the band, we can’t tell for sure when this is happening but we’re keeping our fingers crossed.

A journey towards Self-Love Pt2

Published

By

A part of your journey towards self-love is to let go of things and people who cause you harm, self-doubt and insecurities. Those who hold you back, instead of pushing you further. You may think you’re in a dark place and should be in there left by yourself, but no, there are people who choose to leave you alone and then there are others who are capable of giving you a hand and pulling you out into the light.

Besides having someone to help you out, it’s you at the end, who are capable of giving yourself the love it deserves, and what follows are simple ways toward doing so:

  • Cut the toxicity out of your life.

This toxicity can be habits or people, the common thing is that both cause you damage that you should be willing to let go of and not feel sorry about it. If you got used to a certain bad habit, try to substitute it with a healthier one, or cut it down a notch.

If it’s people who are causing toxicity in your life, make boundaries or even better rid yourself of their burden, you may still be holding on to them because you have known them for years, but trust me, it’s not worth draining all of your energy. And you’ll realize that once you start to shift this wasted energy from them and towards your own self, that is when you’ll know the relief of letting go.

  • Make a day for yourself.

Take a day for yourself, learn to enjoy your own company. You can go out, have lunch by yourself, go to the movies or maybe make it a spa day. Anything that will help you relax and put your mind at ease. Or you can simply stay home, and do some self-care routines that you surely have been ignoring.

And never feel guilty for taking some time off away from your friends; because this is simply you putting yourself on top of your priority list and it’s nothing to feel sorry for.

  • Keep those who understand you closer.

Stick to those people during your journey, those who understand and value your worth, and sees you for who you really are. They will see things in you, that you’re yet to discover about yourself. They will help you find them and it’s an essential part of your journey, as it is crucial to be surrounded with people who remind you constantly of your worth, and validate your points.

  • Forgive your past self.

In order to kill your demons, you have to confront them first, work on banishing your dark sides with the light of your forgiveness, show willingness to not only fight those demons but to have the power to accept them. Focus on who you want to become, instead of blaming yourself for what you might or might not have done.

  • Exercise.

Loving yourself is accepting it and changing what can be changed to the better. Leading a healthy life can have positive outcomes, on both your mental and physical health.

Eat healthy food, and monitor your change, the results will boost your confidence.

  • Stop focusing on winning people’s approvals.

And try to focus on wining yours! Your approval is the only one that matters, if something makes you happy then do it. Don’t wait around for someone’s permission to do what you love, and you surely don’t have to do what everyone else is doing.

BBC interviews Al-Daheh Ahmed El-Ghandour

Published

“Meet the geek behind Egypt’s hit online science show” was the title that BBC has given to its interview with our own Ahmed El Ghandour aka ‘Al-Daheh’, and it gives us pride to have one of our brilliant minds being acknowledged by such a well-known media platform.

El Ghandour launched his science blog back in 2014, and now his channel has clocked up more than 19 million views.

He might just be the only person who is capable of turning science into something fun, accessible and understandable to all segments that follow his blog.

“I love all scientific subjects, never really stuck to learning only one.” Al-Ghandour tells BBC.

And that’s what makes his blog even more interesting, and succeeds in attracting different segments; seeing that he covers topics ranging from evolution to war, from science to history and more.

He describes the character of Al-Daheh as lonely, nerdy and insecure. Always appearing by himself on the show. I believe this is one of the reasons that his blog is succeeding, because the character of Al-Daheh is one that appeals to all and gets you hooked to know more, he always tells the information in a fun, kind of a weird way.

One of the theories on how countries evolve and ways towards gaining sustainable development, is the education entertainment theory. And that is through spreading awareness and  educating masses by means of entertainment. This is why, Al-Daheh is a personal favorite to me, and one of the few influencers to be using his platform in doing his fans real good.
