The Mission

Our mission is simple; we endeavor to equip and empower young ladies to view themselves as beautiful “inside and out” and to successfully navigate the journey into womanhood.

We focus on young women aged 12-17 and actively engage them in dialogue, demonstrations and an atmosphere which allows them to honestly and openly express themselves, ask questions and interact with nationally renowned experts, their peers and others. This fabulous event focuses on beauty, health/wellness, etiquette and a lot of energy around self-esteem. We give our young women the tools to navigate into womanhood with a very unique, upbeat and exciting approach. Young ladies will be inspired, learn the proper path to “beauty”, improve her self-esteem and learn about self-worth, relationships, health and living, fitness, etiquette, how to deal with peer pressure; all while being pampered and treated like the treasured young women that they are!

Truly this is a day on the journey to “Becoming a Beautiful Woman Inside and Out”!


What is “Becoming a Beautiful Woman Inside and Out?”

“Becoming a Beautiful Woman Inside and Out” is a daylong conference that is really focused on the girl that is in the process of becoming a woman. We strive to equip, inspire and motivate young women ages 12-17 to become the beautiful ladies they were destined to be on the “inside and out:” This is not a superficial conference that feeds into the Hollywood standard of “beauty”;, but rather we hone in on what young girls are attracted to, their interests, their challenges and their aspirations.

Areas of focus:

  • The Journey into Womanhood
    • Goals and Dreams
    • Self Esteem
    • Relationships
    • Healthy living today and into womanhood
    • Other areas such as navigating tough situations, bullying, peer pressure, sexuality and choices, and self-worth
  • Proper Skin Care
  • Healthy and Stylish Hair Care
  • Makeup Do’s and Don’ts
  • Nutrition and Fitness
  • Proper Etiquette
  • Fashion and Cultivating a Unique Look
