"Throughout my life, I’ve had the pleasure to know how to rise above my personal goals and surprise everyone. Specifically, this past year, I’ve achieved more than I could ever have expected. I won the Empowerment Award last year at the Young Women’s Empowerment Conference, and I was completely honored. I know that I can reach out to my community and show them that life can be better, that life is beautiful."

"I attended this conference last year, and it was MAGNIFICENT! I received some great information that I can use for the rest of my life. The food was wonderful and so was the entertainment. I met people who were of great positions, people who have already excelled in the fields of study where I am trying to get. I also met some peers whom I will remember forever."
Sarah Seawright, Senior, Fairfield Preparatory High School
"It is important to me to come to the conference because I enjoyed being empowered last year, and it pushed me to become a new person. The speakers taught me to picture my future and now I focus on doing what is necessary for me to reach my goals. Last year I was finally able to make the A/B honor roll, for the first time, during my high school years. In addition, I had the courage to work extremely hard and try out for my school’s tennis team, and I was able to make it. The 2009 conference helped empower me to change myself to become a better person last year; and I look forward to the 2010 conference empowering me before I begin to walk into my college years."
Christina Burnett, Senior, Hoover High School
