Haajirah Nur Capstone

Coming into high school, I was insecure and didn't really know how to handle the things I went through. It took me until I was in 11th grade to realize and understand how to properly handle my emotions and situations in a way that not only promoted my self-esteem but was healthy and positive. The idea of Why Do Girls Cry? was introduced to Demo Nianghane and me in 2018 by a friend. We decided to make a mini-organization that focused on the experiences high school girls have and teaching them ways to deal with those situations and emotions. We created a website that includes poems, videos, advice threads and even chatboxes that young teenage girls can use throughout high school that will encourage their self-esteem and happiness in a positive way despite any experiences that they encounter
