On Monday, Feb 13, 2017, students, alumni, family and friends gathered together inside the Center for Academic Success (CAS) building for Kean’s first annual paint and poetry night hosted by S.H.E. Vibes. Doors opened at 7 p.m and the performances started from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
The founders of S.H.E are three juniors that attend Kean University: Hana Sabree, psychology major, Linda Velez, public relations major and Sunae Long, art major.
“S.H.E stands for sophisticated, headstrong, and exotic women. We want S.H.E to be everywhere, not just Kean, we want to go beyond,” said Linda Velez.
This event included a number of young talented poets and painters collaborating together to perform a show about love and self-expression. While the poets perform on stage, painters will paint depending on what vibe they get from the poet.
A dating game was also held during the event where they would have three contestants competing for one person of the opposite gender. The three contestants would then answer questions to show who would be the best candidate to go on a date with.
There were about 75 to 100 people in attendance. A few candies and treats were also handed out during the event for students and guests.
“The audience was amazing, everyone had participated, eve
ryone was focused and everyone had a good time. It was a very comfortable feeling, and it was a great vibe,” said Sunae Long.
“We want to touch more women, we want to touch bases with everything on campus because everyone goes out to a party but not everyone can
come to an occasion like this, so it was a beautiful thing to see.”
Stay tuned for more upcoming events hosted by S.H.E vibes this spring.
