On this past Saturday I had the pleasure of being apart of the On This Journe Mentor Me Summit 2017 panel. 20 young ladies were selected not only to gleam from 6 different panelist, they were given prizes! Such as a glam squad for their prom day and a book scholarship for college. It was such a pleasure being around individuals that have shared the same experiences and to see what our future lawyers, doctors and/or even politicians looked like.
I had the pleasure of presenting the topic “I Am Beautiful”. My subtopics were Fashion, Clothing and Makeup. Whenever I am on a panel I ALWAYS try to go against the grain….step outside the box. I took my make up off in front of everyone. Yes, you read right. We are made to believe we NEED makeup and can’t live with out it. I wanted to make a point that we are all beautiful with all our imperfections we may think we have. Plus you have to give your a face a break to breath. Its not what’s outside like the latest designer fashions, but what’s inside your brain such as education and heart such as love, compassion and sympathy towards others.
