Agnes Scott College Economic Empowerment Summit

This week I was invited to be a panelist at the one-day economic empowerment summit at Agnes Scott College that was being presented by the National Center for Civil and Human Rights for teen age girls. Elizabeth Kiss President of Agnes Scott College and Bahati Kuumba Professor and Associate Director, of Women's Center at Spelman College opened it with some inspiring  and empowering speeches. I really loved teaching and encouraging the girls to follow their passions, the girls also had a lot of great questions!
