Calling young girls ages 11-17 to participate in personal growth and self-improvement.
As a teenager, you have the power to shape your own future and make a positive impact on the world. At this conference, we want to empower you to take control of your life, believe in yourself, and reach your full potential.
Throughout the event, you will have the opportunity to hear from inspiring speakers, participate in interactive activities, and connect with other like-minded girls who will support and encourage you. We will be discussing the topics of Community, Confidence, And Empowerment.
