Purpose & PowHER in Jacksonville, Florida
Written by gphradio on December 18, 2018
Purpose & PowHER is an all girls day event Co-founded by both Gabrielle Roseberry and Kierra Simone (McCray). Both of these ladies wanted to do something tremendously rewarding for young girls in their community on the Northside of Jacksonville, Florida, so they decided to get together and came up with the idea to restore self-confidence, self-love and self-awareness into middle school aged girls with an all day event covering each of those ares. The girls enjoy attending workshops, listening to a panel, having a luncheon, plenty of sponsored goodies, and a fabulous fashion show to end the day!
After having great success at their first event at Matthew W Gilbert Middle School earlier this year in May, they were invited to bring the event to Northwestern Middle School. With bigger and better everything, the event was even more amazing than planned and the impact was truly shown through the girls remarks.
“Don’t let people take your self-esteem. Don’t let people ruin your image. Support your friends and don’t worry about what other people say” – Jaige, 8th grader
“I learned to always believe in yourself” –Candace, 8th grader
“I liked everything, but I really like that they all are relatable” –Asante, 8th grader
