Queen Arise Teen Empowerment Summit
July 11, 2020 | 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Do you feel like there is something calling you for greater? It’s a feeling that makes your heart desire more in life. It’s a pestering question that is always asking what’s next for my life. Well, the time is NOW, it’s time for you Queen, yes you, to ARISE for such a time as this. (Esther 4:14)
I Am A Queen will host the “Queen Arise” Teen Empowerment Summit on Saturday, July 11 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. This event is a FREE virtual experience for girls ages 10-18. It’s sure to be a game-changer!
“Queen Arise” is a call-to-action for girls in our city to come into their royal positions. Our goal is to activate the confidence within participants to lead, organize, and ultimately empower other girls to be Queens.
This year’s summit will offer two life coaching sessions which girls can choose between. These sessions will focus on uncovering and activating a girl’s confidence and leadership skills.
Each participant will receive a conference packet in the mail before July 11. Registration is required.
Disclaimer: The “Queen Arise” Teen Empowerment Summit is designed for girls who are serious about achieving their goals within the next 90 days. We hope this summit will ignite an internal fire and motivate girls to seek their highest potential.
We look forward to seeing the results produced from Queen Arise.
