If a girl is going to a party

By Faith Allen via UN Volunteers







We all have attended a party one time or another in our life.  Here are some tips to keep in mind for your next party.

The three questions you should have answered before going to any party is: What is the party about? Who else will be at the party? Is it important for you to be at the party?

Be selective of the parties you go to. Make sure the party you select is one that will encourage your personal , career or social growth. If a party is not beneficial to you and may lead you to spend money recklessly or even put your life in danger, consider not going.

Once you are at a party, determine whether you are going to eat or drink anything. It is always important to keep an eye on where your food and drink comes from. This will not only allow you to see if the food was prepared in a clean environment but it will also prevent anyone from putting a drug into your drink.

Always let someone know where you are going. If possible, take a trusted friend with you especially if you will be out drinking. If you are in trouble, have a trusted friend on standby for you and call them. 

Always carry extra money even if you are not paying and make sure to treat the party hosts with respect if necessary.


Additionally, wear shoes and clothes that you are comfortable in, be confident and have fun. Be safe.
