Ever wondered what Girl Power is?
Look no further than the Girl’s World Expo!! This year Lane & Associates Family Dentistry had the pleasure of being Presenting Sponsors for the Raleigh NC 2019 Girls World Expo at the Hilton Raleigh in North Hills on May 19th. Girls World Expo is a day-long event created BY local teen girls FOR local teen girls – the local Raleigh Girls Advisory Board is made up of teens from Raleigh who have created this unique show! These girls have also worked closely with their local media partner, to fill the day with seminars, performances, demonstrations, and vendors that serve needs in the Raleigh area!
Starting off the day with a bang was the welcome and Girls of Merit Award Ceremony where local Raleigh girls were recognized for their many achievements in the community. Our very own Social Media Manager, Alicia Wilson, spoke at the brunch to give our sincere congratulations to the girls. Check out the beautiful stars who were chosen as this year’s Raleigh Girls of Merit below!
Included in the day’s events were musical and dance performances by a variety of female artists, singers, and dance groups. Miss North Carolina USA and Miss North Carolina Teen USA were also in attendance along with a wonderful panel of strong female leaders in their industry. Exhibits and Workshops including Robotics, Tae Kwon Do, Wood Sign painting, STEM projects, Fashion Shows, and Vision Boards for Success were scattered throughout the expo. The attendees also had a chance to attend sessions such as “Using LinkedIn to Obtain Scholarships and Internships”, “Walking in My Womanness”, and “The Achievement Mindset” while also hearing from the Fearless Female panel. This panel included such names as Dr. Jo Allen (President of Meredith College), Carnela Renee Hill (CEO of CR Hill Design Group LLC) and Dina Schweisthal (Founder/Owner of KNACK DIY Craft Studio).
Many of the attendees also had opportunities to win prizes, interact with vendors at the Exhibitor Marketplace, enjoy the Live Music and Entertainment while also learning new & exciting trends for females! From Comic book graphics to Science & Tech, the future is female and we at Lane & Associates are proud to sponsor events such as the Girls World Expo that breathe life to the true foundation of a healthy happy journey for women at every age. Thank you for coming out to spend time with us and we hope to see you at next year’s event!
