And yes, I’ll be at all of them!
May is going to be an amazing month full of wonderful events! I am beyond happy to have a hand in most of them. From speaking engagements to fundraising events, ya girl is busy! Beyond empowering people to becomes their best self, I want to be show all the introverts out there that they can put themselves out there without draining their energy. With that said, here are 6 events happening this month that are sure to enrich, empower and energize you.
Wednesday, May 2nd, I will host my very first webinar on how to build an authentic, loyal Instagram following. After quitting my 9-5 as a social media manager for the leading blindness not-for-profit organization, I learned a thing or three growing an account. I also ran the social media account for Fashion Bomb Daily as well as trained their staff. If you want to learn a few tips and tricks, sign up for my webinar HERE.
Hope For the Child Fundraiser
Last year I took one of the most life-changing trips ever. I got the opportunity to visit the motherland. I spent a week in South Africa and I was completely amazed by the people, culture, food, nature and history. While there I met a man who encouraged me to see other parts of Africa. “See how we’re REALLY living,” he said. This year I have the opportunity to go to Kenya and volunteer with young children at a school. These children are orphans and don’t have much other than what they can receive through organizations that aim to contribute to their success. I want to go the extra mile and present a check to Hopeforthechild.org to help the children that they serve selflessly each day. Donations will assist with school supplies, clothing, food and water supply. In efforts to raise funds, I am hosting a fundraiser on Tuesday, May 8th. Unable to attend? Feel free to donate HERE.

Illuminate: A beauty Empowerment Workshop (Presented by the BIY Project)
“Often times the beauty of who we truly are gets masked by circumstances, life altering events, limitations, and/or expectations that have shaped our identity. While it is an idea that we are a makeup of our life’s circumstances, the BIY project seeks to point out the myths we have told ourselves about ourselves and discover the truth, lessons, beauty and love that is rooted deep within our journey.
The BIY Project community provides a safe space in which women create a definition of themselves by their own terms. This inaugural event entitled ILLUMINATE, is a full day beauty empowerment workshop and a celebration of healing, acceptance and self love. Join us on Saturday, May 19th for an amazing panel discussion, interactive workshop, vendors, raffle prizes, food, drinks and more!”

Brooklyn is home to some of the most creative people that I know, so it’s only right that we host our latest meet up in BK. We all need guidance, and we can all learn something from one another in order to attain what we all desire; success.
