I had so much fun yesterday! After almost 3 weeks of model practice matching sizes from pieces sent by featured brands, and selling tickets to the student body, the current president of Empowering Ladies Together (ELT) – Taylor Ryan – pulled off a successful event. More importantly, the executive board and general body members are appreciated for contributing their time and efforts in helping the president pull everything together! Everyone did a great job.
The 5th annual Women’s Empowerment Dinner took place on campus yesterday evening. This year, a fashion show was added to the program! YOUniverse at the Univeristy (the name of the show) focused on self-expression – you can do anything you want in life, be anything you put your mind to, and dress in any way you feel expresses who you are individually. Over 300 free event tickets were dispersed, including a free dinner and a keynote message from guest speaker LeTonia A. Jones, MSW. Free Performances were also a part of the show done by Shades of Movement Dance Troop, Brittany Humphrey, Omega Psi Phi Faternity Inc., J.Kellz, and Tatiyana Dean feat. Braxton Harshaw.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with ELT, Empowering Ladies Together is a recognized student organization on campus that works to empower the mind, body, and soul of ALL women, with focus on minority women in particular. This fairly new organization (founded in Fall 2009) has grown into an RSO that enhances students’ ability to excel socially and culturally. At the fashion show a total of 12 underground clothing lines were presented: Humble, J.Noir, SneakerBoxx, Purple Kurlz, LRG, Can We Money?, Sanquon, Clothes Minded, Rare Credentials, Wolves Premium, and Vintage Junkie. Fourty five wonderful models graced the stage and all of them ripped the way. Big ups to ELT.
