The afternoon began with breaking the ice. Pairs of attendees introduced one another and relayed their partner’s objectives. From leaving their day jobs to finally getting started on their side hustles everyone had dreams that they were working to bring to fruition.
It was awesome to see women who had just been perfect strangers speak of each other with such passion and positivity.
After the ice was broken we all got to chowing down on a family style brunch that included Oreo pancakes, Kobe Beef sliders, shrimp mac & cheese and roasted chicken and waffles.
The delectable food was only upstaged by the delightful service. The staff at the Stanton Social added so much to the day’s experience. Jordan in particular never missed a beat serving attendees champagne with the biggest of smiles. LoveBrownSugar’s Public Relations Assistant Kayla and I couldn’t decide what was more appealing his killer cheekbones or his sunny attitude.
Towards the end of the event Christina shared some details about her recent entrepreneurial experiences and divulged why she was so committed to the BrownGirlsLove brand and encouraging women of color to connect with one another.
“The conversations I had with the women in Atlanta were not the same as the ones I had with the women in LA” she said “but they all needed to have those conversations. If I didn’t do this you wouldn’t be here having these conversations with each other! That’s why I can’t give up!”
