I hope you had a fabulous weekend =)
I would have to say my weekend was both Empowering and Fabulously-fun!
Empowering Volunteer Work…
My weekend started off bright and early Saturday morning to do some volunteer work for the Los Angeles Urban League Young Professionals. We worked with the students of Crenshaw High School to help them understand the importance of dressing for success. We provided tips and advice on what to wear to a job interview on the job. The purpose behind this was to show the students that in job-hunting, first impressions are critical! It’s important to put your best foot forward and represent you, the product 100%.
After we finished our “what to wear and what not to wear” presentation, the students received a gift certificate to shop with a mentor for their appropriate job attire at the Del Amo Fashion Center. I had the pleasure in shopping with two fabulous students! We hit it off right away and now I will be mentoring one of the young ladies.
