EMPOWERED WOMEN EMPOWER WOMEN
Hi babes! I’m so excited and inspired and amazed and happy after the night I had last night, and I can’t wait to share why with you all! I attended my first #KCMediaMixer at The Creamery last night (put on by the amazing Bria Jones – go give her a follow!)
What is the #KCMediaMixer?
The #KCMediaMixer is an initiative to bring together female bloggers, influencers, entrepreneurs, creatives, etc… in order to support our personal and professional development as well as give us opportunities to network with one another. It is all amount empowering us to empower one another.
Y’all. We are basically the Spice Girls. #GirlPower
This is definitely an initiative that I can get behind. My first taste of female empowerment and women’s groups was in 1996 when my mom forced me to join the local Girl Scout troop (holla at my fellow Daisies!) While my troop was NOTHING like other troops – we got our makeover and fashion show patches instead of our camping and knot tying patches – one thing that has stuck with me ever since is the importance of women supporting women. I carried it with me all throughout school, into college where I joined a sorority (which supports the exact same ideal), into my role as a sorority advisor and into my personal and professional life.
Event Recap 🙂
So… back to last night’s event.
From the location (peep that skyline below!) to the speaker, the entire event was amazing! The event was held at The Creamery which provided a gorgeous KC skyline view. There was tons of fantastic food and desserts, and an amazing speaker (Sarah Li) on perseverance, staying true to yourself and writing your own story.
But the absolute best part, for me, was getting to meet so many of the amazing women in this community. The women that I interact with day in and day out on Instagram and the women who have turned out to be some of my biggest supporters!
Collaboration > Competition breeds success for all!
