Sage’s Rage: honeybees are SWEET

Posted on: September 22, 2017

i happened to catch the end of jimmy fallon one night. my eyes were glued to the tv because i couldn’t believe what i saw.   a double dutch crew!!  taking me back to days of my youth. i was terrible at it but as bad as i was i always felt so happy jumping rope.  

the amazing team of girls i saw that night are part of the HONEY bee’s, which stands for Helping Other’s Now, Empowering Yourself. the non-profit group was started just two years ago by jersey city natives Takeria Clark and Kimberly Price.  the group provides a fun space for girls to learn teamwork, confidence and creativity, plus some serious athletic skills.  

the girls in the group span ages 4-16 and are so good that even though they just started 2 years ago, they have already claimed the title as world champions in the international double dutch competition.  now that’s something to jump up and down about!!
