Hi, I am Yvonne Liccione and I am a senior at Marvin Ridge High School located outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. I am in my county’s International Baccalaureate program which has significantly developed my skills as a writer and communicator. I am so excited to continue that development this year with jGirls+. I like tea, dancing, and singing along poorly to the guitar solos in my favorite classic rock songs. I am passionate about learning, activism, and using my voice for a purpose. When I’m not researching, writing, or hanging out with my friends, I love to find new ways to express myself through fashion and makeup. In my time with jGirls+, I want to help my fellow Jewish-teen girls embrace their brains and beauty in any way they choose. I am so excited to read your submissions and cannot wait for the year ahead.
