This year the Citywide Girls Initiative Youth Summit was held at Regis High in the Upper East Side. The all-day event was filled with talented speakers Wendy Hilliard, Miki Agrawal, Myself and Alison Desir closing out the show.
The fun filled girl empowerment day had workshops for the girls to help hone in their craft of writing, designing and how to become leaders in their communities.
Working closely with the Lower Eastside Girls Club, I was asked to speak and I was extremely honored. There’s nothing like empowering and encouraging young women to aspire and step outside of the mold of what is being asked of them.
I am so thankful for this opportunity and can’t wait to see what next year holds for these young ladies.
Thank you for giving me your time to listen to my story and I hope I can inspire you to be honest and open to becoming a leader by breaking the mold of what society feels we fit in.
Looking forward to next year!
