Girl Talk! was held on Friday, March 16th through Saturday, March 17th for girls ages 11-19. This event was hosted by Davita Briggs, who is the founder of Daughters Pursuing Destiny Inc. Daughters Pursuing Destiny is an empowerment mentorship program for girls in the Delta.
During Girl Talk!, the young ladies were able to participate in workshops that focused on hygiene/health, beauty/self-image, and healthy relationships. The young ladies had the opportunity to make a sugar body scrub and learn how to cook chicken alfredo from scratch. Oh, how tasty!
They started thinking about their futures by creating a vision board that displayed short and long-term goals. The girls were full of energy when participating in late night Zumba which was so much fun.
