We were pleasantly surprised to hear Pharrell William encouraging the audience to practice of MINDFULNESS!!!^^^
After months of anticipation, Girls Build LA @ Grand Arts finally attends the long awaited screening of Hidden Figures!
From the pannel of artists to the exclusive screening shown to the thousands of LA County students, this once in a lifetime event sparked a lot of motivation in our Grand Arts team. We had the privilege to listen to such passionate and accomplished speakers of all different professional and ethnic backgrounds, and we even had the opportunity to view a live stream from the Internaltional Space Station, where a female astronaut's inspiring words moved a generation of female middle school and high school attendees. Perhaps the most empowerring segment of the event was when the four pannelists shared their most inspirational quotes. Among these, Janelle Monet's said" When we stick together as girls, as sisters, as women, we can achieve anything." Heart-warmed and teary-eyed, the entire event marked a significant moment in our lives and inspired us to follow our dreams, as ambitious as they may be, and to embrace who we are.
