- New York, NY (1888PressRelease) October 13, 2010 - Inspired Girls International, a Los Angeles based personal development company and lifestyle brand for teen girls has formally announced its upcoming Inspired Girls Success Summit which will take place in New York on October 23, 2010. The 1 day event features interactive workshops, live entertainment, beauty makeovers, and giveaways for young women ages 14-21. The event will be held at the Women's Academy for Excellence in the Bronx, the school adopted by R&B megastar Mary J. Blige. Featuring high profile speakers and coaches from across the U.S., the Success Summit goes beyond self-esteem to give tomorrow's successful woman her toolkit today.
Inspired Girls has teamed up with New York based entrepreneur, trainer, and mentor Stacie N.C. Grant along with Washington D.C. based attorney and trainer Star Bobatoon. Unlike other empowerment events, the Inspired Girls Success Summit applies its founder's empowerment formula of inspiration + education + application to achieve unprecedented retention of the concepts taught at the event. Girls leave the event with a specific set of life tools for personal, academic, and professional success. Attendees receive workbooks, giveaways and more. The curriculum for the event covers financial literacy, academic excellence, personal development, beauty, health & fitness, relationships, and spiritual growth. According to 2009 survey results, one hundred percent of the girls who attended last year's Summit would come again and bring a friend. The Summit also includes workshops for parents on topics such as paying for college, social media for their daughters, and handling bullies.
Sponsors and partners for the New York Success Summit include Luna, Minuteman Press, Bold Girlz, the Society for Girls, and Soluv magazine. Two lucky girls will be chosen as winners of tickets to the red carpet premiere of the highly anticipated Lionsgate film For Colored Girls directed by Tyler Perry and starring Janet Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Thandi Newton, and other popular actresses. Every girl who attends will receive a year-long subscription to Seventeen magazine, courtesy of Inspired Girls.
"We're incredibly excited about bringing the Summit to New York. We have created something special, and we can't wait to share it with the girls and parents. For us, this is about more than girls feeling good about their bodies - this is about everything from money to relationships. It takes a full set of strategies to succeed in today's world and we're giving girls that in a fun and exciting way." says Executive Producer Lisa Nicole Bell.
Inspired Girls is supported by feminine leaders all over the world including Ambassador at Large on International Women's Issues Charlotte Ponticelli. She states, "Through its initiatives to help teen girls become the leaders of tomorrow, Inspired Girls puts its vision into action each and every day and has touched thousands of lives."
Inspired Girls International serves girls who are often ignored because they are not overachievers and are not considered at-risk. Programs offered at Inspired Girls include workshops, life camps, books, CDs, workbooks, coaching, and an online community.
