“Every day when you wake up, put your cape on, be bold. Don’t let anybody tell you what you can’t do. Keep moving forward and remember Girls Rule!” ~ Keynote speaker Rachel McKenzie
On March 9th, JA hosted its annual Girls Rule: Ignite Your Superpower event, which welcomed 200 local high school girls to participate in a day of inspiring workshops and motivational speakers, including keynote speaker Rachel McKenzie, a bold entrepreneur and wife of former Super Bowl champion Michael Terrance McKenzie, and Dr. Yvette Maureen, a 5-time author, TEDx speaker and entrepreneur.
This year the event included its first “Dress for Success” runway fashion show where 15 students modeled business fashions. Student models were sponsored by members of the Circle of Wise Women, and kept the outfits to begin building their professional wardrobes.
Thank you to everyone who supported this event! If you are inspired to share your superpowers to help young girls find their path, passion and purpose, get involved now and help plan for next year!
