How your later years can be your best years


We’ve all been there… You wake up…walking past the mirror...when a glance stops you. That slight wrinkle on your cheek wasn't there yesterday. Guess you need to put your glasses on, to make sure. Or maybe, there’s a pain in your massage it, but nope,  still there. Don’t get me started on those achy knees.


Participants will:


  • Learn why we’re negatively obsessed with aging

  • Discover how we can shift our focus in a positive way

  • Decide whether injectables, or surgery are good/safe options

  • Determine why “getting older” can give you a fresh look at your life

Women of Color in Journalism


Those of us who’ve spent a decent amount of our lives in the land of Journalism, know that it’s a fickle taskmaster. Your employment can come and go like yesterday’s Lead story. So what pitfalls can you avoid and how?


Participants will:


  • Learn different paths to a career in Journalism

  • How to deal with “controversial” stories, i.e. race, LGBTQ, school shootings

  • Are there restrictions connected to being a woman of color?

  • What branch of Journalism would you be best suited for?
