Beyoncè may have sung that “a diva is a female version of a hustler,” but Angela Patton, the founder and CEO of Camp Diva, has a new lease on the term.
“What our philosophy is, is that every girl who comes into our program is divine,” she told HuffPost Live’s Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani. “And what our vision is, is to help nurture that potential within each girl.”
The camp , which is based in Richmond, Va., hosts predominantly African-American girls from low income areas and strives to impart such skills as “healthy eating habits, financial management” and exercise practices like yoga.
