|With Marie Lilly, Self Defense trainer, my friend and fellow advocate for women!|
I got up at 5 a.m. and arrived at 7 a.m. for this day--it was SO worth it!! I volunteered last year and had a wonderful time, but I felt this year was even better. I met many beautiful, successful women, received and gave some great advice and HWHN honored me with the Spirit of Woman Award--a surprise and blessing! I felt so special and overcome with love by the end of the day--truly a day of empowerment! I cannot wait for the upcoming conference in St. Croix and the 2012 conference...
| With my girls, Morgan and Megan!|
Morgan's Twitter: I had a great day @HWHN!! I met so many amazing teens and women I'm thankful for! Excited for next year! @LaQuishaHall
I gave "LaQuisha Jr.", Morgan's unborn baby girl, her first Easter Basket!
With fabulous workshop presenters and advocates for women and girls!
Awarding LaTayla Palmer-Lewis, workshop facilitator of "Self-Care for Incest Survivors".
Tara was also a great asset to the "Self-Care for Incest Survivors" workshop!
My heart was overwhelmed with love for Mothyna and Monokia for choosing me as their Spirit of Woman Award recipient... I have received many awards, but these two women truly know me and know what I have been through. Not only do they know me, but I have volunteered with them for about two years--I just did not even consider myself in the running. They are just so supportive and encouraging of everything that I do, EVERYTHING. I will continue to give "tireless service" to this organization and I cannot thank them enough for how they made me feel today... I
They even tweeted giving us the award before we received it!! Smh... too special and thoughtful! :)
My "award sister", Crystal, who also received an award! The Legacy of Strength Award was given to her for facing health challenges yet still rising to the top! Crystal is a survivor of lupus and cancer but you would never know because she never complains and she is an avid supporter and volunteer for HWHN! I
Until St. Croix...
