I cannot tell how great it felt to be amongst a cloud of powerful women from all walks of life.  It was a great opportunity to hear their inspiring personal leadership journeys and wisdom from those who have paved the way.

On Wednesday we began the session with Game Changers: A Decade of Success Luncheon where Ms. Mikki Taylor, Editor at Large of Essence Magazine served as Mistress of Ceremony.  The luncheon included a ceremony where Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, President, Spelman College presented the awards recognizing the international accomplishments of women of color from 2004 to 2014.  Guests were also treated to an inspiring message from Keynote Speaker, Major General Marcia Anderson, Deputy Chief, U.S. Army Reserve.

Major General Marcia Anderson spoke about her mother and how she EXPOSED her children to different things outside her neighborhood/environment.  This really stood out for me because my mother did JUST that.  I believe it has made the difference in my life because I was able to see & believe ANYTHING is possible.  Unfortunately, some of our children lack “vision” because they don’t see anything beyond their circle.  This is why I appreciate programs Like City of Atlanta Cultural Experience who’s mission is to expose APS kids to the arts and cultural affairs.

Lunch was delicious (I love to eat) and the room was set up for a queen.  So colorful & beautiful… I was able to chat with the ladies at my table and share the experience.  Enjoy the pics I snapped and stay tuned for DAY 2 of the leadership conference.
