So last Saturday there was a huge event called ‘Girl Prep Hollywood‘ – an empowerment conference target to disadvantaged teen and tween girls aged 10 to 13 years old. The conference is organized every year by 2 amazing women: Towanna Freeman and her 11 year old daughter Jenesis.
200 inner-city girls from the Los Angeles attended the one-day conference which includes a meet-and-greet with celebrities, live music, lunch, games and gifting to name a few. Workshops will include self-esteem building, team building, leadership, youth engagement and violence prevention.
Kindle my Heart offered a workshop called “Express yourself“. The leaders were my friend Nadine and Aparna – 2 amazing young ladies and busy college students that volunteered their time and shared the knowledge they got from being teachers of The Art of Living foundation. The description of the workshop was: Do you ever feel frustrated that you are unable to express yourself? Do you wish that there were a way to overcome the things that prevent you from expressing your creativity? Join us for a fun, empowering workshop where you will learn valuable tools to live creatively and happily! We will do some artistic interactive processes that will increase your ability to connect with your inner artist and increase the love you have for your self. You will also learn how to utilize your breath to have increased energy, yet a focused and peaceful state of mind. When your mind is relaxed, that is when true creativity flows out.
