The girls were really delighted to hear Jessica McGuinty speak. She was able to relate to them on a personal level by sharing some stories from her youth where people teased her because of her thick curly hair. She also talked about how her curly hair led her to start her company JessiCurl.
Salon Infinity owner, Trina Pierre showed them how their Barbies can have curly hair too!
Motivational speaker Daree Allen spoke to them about her new book, "Whats Wrong With Me" and taught them how to journal as a means of self expression.
Several girls volunteered to read from "12 Months With Ayanna's Kids" by Author Ayanna Davis
Each girl left with a gift bag full of goodies, but they also left feeling empowered and good about who they are. Now that is priceless!!
