The keynote speaker will be Taylor Paige Henderson, who is a local celebrity who starred as young Winifred in Hocus Pocus 2. Organizers noted Henderson encourages girls to attend the event to grow their self-confidence.
Additional scheduled speakers include Tim Bowles, senior department administrator in the TTUHSC Department of Pediatrics, and Whitney Chapman, lead counselor at North Heights, who will lead a session for moms. Christina Monteith will lead the girls in attendance in a fun dance activity.
Girl Power helps provide a tool for parents and guardians from healthcare professionals and counselors on how to navigate challenging times in their daughter’s life, said organizers. Adolescence can be a challenging time in any girl’s life. Girl Power empowers them through education and fun group activities on how to feel great about themselves and to get out there and feel like they can conquer the world.
