Maddie Rose, a freshman at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Miss North Phoenix, will emcee a one-day conference aimed at female empowerment for teens and their mentees. Maddie attended the summit when she was a teen and is proud to return to inspire other future leaders.
The 4th annual Shine Brightly Teens and Women Summit, hosted by Girls Rule Foundation in partnership with Arizona State University, will be held October 29 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the ASU Tempe campus Memorial Union located at 1000 S. Normal Ave. The programming is designed specifically for girls aged 12 through 18 and their moms, dads, aunts, grandmothers or mentees.
Attendees will begin the day with a photo booth and a $500 Fund Your Dream contest, and go on to hear from inspirational speakers about hands-on tools for building and maintaining confidence, making wise choices, setting goals and funding and achieving their dreams. The Summit is also home to the Brilliant, Beautiful and Bold Role Model Award that recognizes four exceptional young girls who are making a difference in their community. Each girl will receive $500 to further her dream and become a mentor for a year.
New this year, is a VIP reception the night before the conference. It will be held at the world headquarters of Origami Owl located at 450 N. 54th St. in Chandler between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Friday, October 28. The $10 entry ticket will include food, fun, music and prizes.
