Hey, everyone, today I'm going to draw my AG life. In this video, I will cover how I collected all of my 9 beautiful friends (aka my dolls) and how I got into stop motioning. Go grab some popcorn, sit down, and get ready for my story!
If it wasn’t for my mom, I would have had no idea that American Girl was a thing! My story begins in 2007. Since I did not know American Girl existed, I usually would play with baby dolls, Polly pockets or Barbies. My mom was really glad that I loved playing with dolls. She loved it so much that she wanted to get a doll who would become my twin. First, she tried buying me baby dolls, but they just never looked right. I mean the sort of appeared a little strange and not realistic. Next, she tried a Mulan, a Disney doll, to be my twin, but mom to still wasn't satisfied. So she logged on her computer and typed up “Asian dolls" in the search bar. That is when she found out about American Girl. Mom clicked on a picture of Ivy and immediately began falling in love with her. Soon she ordered Ivy and the doll was on her way! By the way, I no clue that my mom is doing this. One day my mom gave me a long large box covered in …show more content…
So many memories have been made. YouTube has been such a positive experience for me! I've met many big girls that love AG dolls just as much as I do. I love being here creating videos, meeting new people, and experiencing things I would have never experienced had my mom not bought Ivy and had God not lead me to AGTUBE. I thank God that He's blessed me such an amazing experience so far. God has used the dolls to teach me patience and the art of stop motioning. I just want to give a quick last minute shout out to AGChic, AmIcuteorwhat?, Little T. AG, ST. Starlight, Designed By Dolls, Minty AG studios, and everyone else who is subscribed to me. Thanks for all the sweet comments I receive! You're all so supportive of my channel and I really appreciate

Throughout United States history oppression of people has always been prominent, whether through African American’s and segregation or Asian American’s during the Vietnam War. What is often ignored is our history of the oppression of women. No matter what time in history, there is always a case to be found of the discrimination over gender. Many people know of how African American’s came into freedom and the long perilous road it took, but few know the struggles, changes and hardships that women have perceived to get where they are today. As the civil war halted and industrialization and urbanization came into play, the role of women changed dramatically and their status
Many African American women have finally embraced their natural hair and are no longer perming, straightening or altering their hair. However, it has become difficult to obtain the necessary hair care products and learn the ins and outs about caring for their hair, but with the help of social media, they are obtainable. Ever since African American woman decided that they are going to embrace their natural hair, perm sales have decreased. More than 26% of perm sales have decreased since 2008 (Opie & Phillis, 2015), while perms are declining, natural hair care products are increasing. While natural hair care products are increasing, it is no thinks to big brand stores or beauty salons in near hometown. It has to do with buying
Though its primary function is usually plot driven--as a source of humor and a means to effect changes in characters through disguise and deception—cross dressing is also a sociological motif involving gendered play. My earlier essay on the use of the motif in Shakespeare's plays pointed out that cross dressing has been discussed as a symptom of "a radical discontinuity in the meaning of the family" (Belsey 178), as cul-tural anxiety over the destabilization of the social hierarchy (Baker, Howard, Garber), as the means for a woman to be assertive without arousing hostility (Claiborne Park), and as homoerotic arousal (Jardine). This variety of interpretations suggests the multivoiced character of the motif, but
If an African American woman is sitting on a bus is it assumed that her job is a maid? Of course not. Today’s societal norms have developed to the point where we can’t tell a person’s job through their appearances and or skin color. Societal expectations of African American women have drastically changed from what they were in the society’s view from “Their Eyes Were Watching God” in the 1930’s to now in 2018.
The subpopulation of the southeastern United States that I am identifying is the African-American Woman. I chose this topic because it relates to me the most being that I am an African American woman. The five most important health concerns for the African- American Woman subpopulation are breast cancer, High blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, overweight and obesity, and mental health issues (depression). African-American woman have the most, and most of the time the largest, differences in health risks when compared to other minority groups. African-American woman have the most disease, disability, and early death as well. A lot of these early deaths are caused by such late detection of the many diseases
I grew up in a Catholic School, me being the only black person in the class for about six years. Looking like an outcast. Sometimes I wonder what my classmates thought of me since I was the only colored person in the class. I wonder if they were thinking bad things about me. Since I was the only colored person in the class. It was hard for me at first to fit in, no one would want to talk to me or play with me. Then, as I got older it was easier to fit in because I wasn’t the only other race that was there. By now the world has changed a whole lot. Lately in social media black women have been called names that no one would like to be called those names are black Barbie’s, baby mamas, and uneducated sisters.
A disparity is a great inconsistency, difference , or a lack of equality. As a consequence of studies researching the educational experiences of boys dominating the academic realm of African Americans, the educational disparities that their female counterparts face are overshadowed and/or discounted. The purpose of this paper is to address the inconsistency, or lack of extensive research on African American girls by examining the ways in which gender plays an adverse role in the education of African American girls, how much awareness there is on the issue of educational disparities in AA girls (specifically the faculty and students), and what the future
Every black girl/woman has been asked a point in her life, who is your role model?For little black girls, that question has had more answers added to it over time. They now role models in probably any career path they they choose. During the early and mid 1900’s black girls were seen as less innocent than the white girl. Their bodies and even their whole existence was less valuable than the white girl. Representation of black girls in the media during the early 1900’s showed caricature of little black girls that further exemplified how black girls were looked at in society. Media is
If one was to search for the definition of the term “African American Woman” they would find nothing. Although there are definitions of the words African-American and woman; one cannot define the two words together. This is just it, to actually define what it is to be an African American woman would be the equivalence of rescuing the United States from its trillion dollar debt. It’s impossible. An African American woman can be defined by her confidence, drive and knowledge. All those components define not just her, but her character, her mindset and ultimately the other women of her race.
When turning on the TV, a car commercial appears with men justifying driving an expensive and powerful sports car by complaining about what females in their lives require. Though women slowly gain economic power, the media never represents them as leaders thus reflecting American culture’s view of women. Sexism prevails in American culture and workforce, teaching sexism while denying its presence. Americans must shift their culture to impede sexism because it oppresses women.
“Angry black woman. Baby Momma. Black Barbie. Gold Digger. Unhealthy fat black woman.” -Krissah Thompson, Essence Magazine. All of these phrases in which 901 black women themselves have illustrated other black women in a survey given by Essence magazine and partners. Thirty of the women who participated in the survey kept diaries for almost two weeks to document the media images they saw portraying black women, proving the media and stereotypes are both very persuasive. The media has come a long way in the portrayal of black people and especially black women in our progressive society, yet black women are still being depicted poorly in media because Hollywood, in particular, prey on black women insecurities and Black women themselves label and stereotype other Black women.
March is Women History Month. This year, 2018, is very significant in term of women history of the US. Women's March in 2017 drew about 3 million people from all walks of life in the US but more in the world. This year’s #MeToo movement spark the women from all over the country to come forward and tell their stories. The stories of abuses, the stories of hope and the stories of dreams.
To Marie and team o3, I really like your post about Guerrilla Girls and how they are fighting for women. Also, according to the National Museum of Women in the Art, there is discrimination to women in art, so they tried to fight for us to get our rights. Another thing is really great about them that they do it in funny ways, and they didn’t use violence to get their rights. In my opinion, in result of how Guerrilla Girls act, they send another message, which is “getting your rights without violence, or in a funny way”. However, there is a question in my mind that makes wondering about them. In the article said that they are wearing the masks and changing their name in the public! Why did they do that if they are proud about their work? I have
In "The American Scholar," Ralph Waldo Emerson characterizes the nature of the American scholar in three categories: nature, books, and action. The scholar is one who nature mystifies, because one must be engrossed with nature before he can appreciate it. In nature, man learns to tie things together; trees sprout from roots, leaves grow on trees, and so on. Man learns how to classify the things in nature, which simplifies things in his mind (section I).
