Strive for Strength is hosting a powerful daylong retreat April 14, which addresses some of the issues teenage girls are facing every day, such as family and friend relationships, bullying, social pressures and self-image.
As part of the day's event, attendees will have the opportunity to listen to leaders, who will bring their own examples of empowerment and what it means to be a young woman today. Scheduled speakers/mentors are:
*Lauren Cook - a recent graduate from UCLA with a double major in communication studies and psychology, and the author of "The Sunny Side Up!", which focuses on gratitude and goal setting.
* Noelle Bean - a singer and songwriter from Los Angeles, who says she writes about real life and wants to inspire young people through her music.
