As long as I have been booking clients, I have had a deep desire to somehow get involved with a local organization in some capacity. One of my core missions is to help build confidence in young girls and teens. So, imagine my excitement when a new friend basically dropped an opportunity to combine both of those wishes in my lap.
This past weekend, I was lucky enough to spend a few hours taking head shots for the NC Distinguished Young Women program in Greensboro.
"Distinguished Young Women is a unique program that combines the chance to win college scholarships with a program that offers Life Skills training to prepare young women for the world after high school. Each year we make over $1.5 billion dollars in scholarships available and it costs nothing to enter!" (distinguishedyw.org)
This program is 100% in line with my personal values and those I hope to see instilled in young women as they grow up. If you are a high school junior or parent, I highly recommend looking into this amazing opportunity. The girls I met all had a sparkle in their eyes, they were kind, fun to be around, and stunning! I am so excited to be at the final event in January.
It was cold, windy and rainy, but all the girls obliged a group shot outside before getting started on the work weekend.
Darian is the reigning North Carolina Distinguished Young Woman and will be passing along the torch in a couple months.
