Grit : a psychological mindset of a positive, non-cognitive trait based on an individual’s passion for a particular long-term goal or end state, coupled with a powerful motivation to achieve their respective objective.
Inside The Girls Room has made it clear that Formation isn’t over with yet! This weekend the team of Grit, Glam , and Guts will collaborate with Good Girl Radio and One Love Global to bring Lansing teen girls together for a Free One Day Conference, The Grit, Glam, & Guts Teen Conference. The conference helps teens from the ages 12 to 18 recognize that sisterhood is important among the next generation of women, while letting the youth know that they can change their community by using their voice.
The Grit, Glam, & Guts Teen Conference, which is going on its 4th year , has reached out to hundreds of teens across the state and will discuss healthy self identity, healthy relationships, passion, purpose, unity and empowerment.
Close to 100 teen girls from across Metro Detroit are expected to join forces on Saturday June 18, 2016 at MSU Residential College of Arts & Sciences (362 Bogue Street East Lansing, MI 48208) from 8:30 am – 2:00pm for 2016.
Cameo King, Grit, Glam & Guts Founder, says “Sisterhood is one of the most important relationships a girl can have. When women come together, powerful things happen. Lives are changed, communities are changed. The world is changed. We want to make sure the next generation of women experience, engage, and know it’s strength.”
Speakers & organizations from across the Lansing area will facilitate interactive and engaging workshops that tackle social and emotional issues of identity and lay a solid foundation of why sisterhood & knowing your power as a young person is essential to the success of individuals, families, and communities.
Conference participants also have a chance to connect with local organizations. Students can register at http://www.GritGlamGuts.com or Eventbrite.
