in a female empowerment conference. I was one of the select few hand selected by faculty members to attend. We discussed pressing issues females in this day in age face and actual solutions to how we cope with them. At first I was apprehensive because I don't tend to be vulnerable towards new people. Many young women opened up about personal conflicts they are going through. This event really helped me open my eyes and realize that no matter our age, ethnicity, religion, and background, us girls deal with very similar, if not the same exact things. Knowing that I am not alone in feeling and acting certain ways helps build my self confidence.
