Those that are familiar with Swish Dreams know that they have always had their sports clinics geared towards boys. This year, Joshua Mercer decided to do something different. He wanted to reach out to girls and make an impact in their lives through sports and empowerment. On October 1, I had the pleasure of presenting two workshops through my non-profit Think Royally Inc (www.thinkroyally.org), on being “Fit For Me;” which focused on the importance of exercise, my recovery from bulimia, and how the girls could live more purposeful lives; even as teens. The turnout included over 150 girls, and many professional women from across the city that came out to support and present workshops to the girls.
Special thanks to those I know personally, that gave back to live life of our young women that day: Cameka Smith, Roshanda Payne, Danielle Wildman, Exavier Pope, Imani Josey, Kenya Drew, Melanie Brezill and many others, who gave of their time and talents to make the launch a success.
