Gloria Perez Featured in Soledad O’Brien’s PowHERful Summit

gloria_soledadJeremiah President & CEO Gloria Perez joined women leaders from across the country for the PowHERful Twin Cities Summit, hosted by Soledad O’Brien’s Starfish Foundation.

group_soledadPerez was a featured panelist at the October 29 Twin Cities summit, a full day of empowerment focused on educational, professional, and personal development for high school- and college-aged participants. Together with her fellow panelists—Dr. Sharon McDaniel from A Second Chance, Dr. Verna Price from Girls in Action, and Sheba Turk, news anchor from WWL-TV in New Orleans—she addressed the topic of “how to endure” with the young women.

This mission of the Starfish Foundation is to get scholars to, and through, college. With a mission to transform lives one girl at a time, the Foundation is a perfect match for Jeremiah’s mission to transform lives two generations at a time.
