The energy was electric, the atmosphere vibrant, as women from diverse backgrounds and experiences converged at Brea Oakes Studio for the inaugural Rising Women Summit hosted by Brea Oakes Studio and Alyssa Waid at Her Collective. This empowering event aimed to cultivate a spirit of solidarity, growth, and empowerment among women. The goal was to provide a platform for them to rise up together.
The summit began with women gathering in, introductions and getting to know some of the other attendees.
Next, women exchanged stories, ideas, and visions. New friendships were formed, mentorship bonds were established, and a network of support began to take shape. The Rising Women Summit wasn’t just about individual growth; it was about building a community of empowered women who uplift each other.
In the heart of the summit, creativity took center stage with a hands-on vision boarding session. Women delved into the process of crafting visual representations of their aspirations, dreams, and goals. There was so much excitement across all the women as magazines were flipped, scissors snipped, and visions came to life on poster boards. The exercise was more than just an arts and crafts activity; it was a powerful tool for manifesting dreams and solidifying intentions. It is an amazing art that we all have inside us.
Firstly, The adrenaline soared as the self-defense workshop kicked into gear. This was led by expert instructor, Katrina Vescelius, an independent Damsel in Defense Pro. Women discovered the power within their own bodies and learned a few tools that can help them out along the way. Katrina taught some great techniques and had a variety of devices that she was able to show and tell. A sense of newfound strength permeated the room as everyone took it in. Her self-defense class wasn’t just about physical empowerment; it was a metaphor for the strength women carry, waiting to be unleashed.
Following the invigorating self-defense session, participants watched a transformative makeup workshop by Nichole Haywood at MakeupYourPower. The workshop wasn’t just about cosmetics; it was about embracing one’s unique beauty. Attendees learned tips and tricks to enhance their features, reinforcing the idea that confidence radiates from within. The makeup workshop was a celebration of individuality, reminding each woman that her uniqueness is her strength.
Lastly, The Rising Women Summit left an indelible mark on all who attended. Women left with a renewed sense of purpose, a network of support, and practical tools to continue their journeys of self-discovery and empowerment. The event proved that when women rise together, the possibilities are limitless.
Overall, This Rising Women Summit wasn’t just a one-day event; it was a catalyst for ongoing empowerment. A reminder that every woman possesses the power to rise, uplift others, and shape a future where success knows no bounds.
