The informal brunch, hosted by Shaun Robinson and Manuela Testolini, will celebrate a notable group of exceptional teenage girls and help reach a collaborative mission to empower children and youth to become compassionate, socially conscious and responsible leaders.
Special invited celebrity friends Niecy Nash, Monique Coleman, Vanessa Simmons, Pauletta Washington and Garcelle Beauvais will donate their time to this extraordinary event. All will share candid advice to teenage girls on what it takes to believe in themselves, others will share excerpts from “Exactly as I Am,” as well as personal life experiences and stories.
“I wanted to bring together a group of girls to experience a wonderfully inspiring day of beauty and empowerment – to help each one of them know how unique and special they are. Having women that these girls look up to, come and share in this day with them, is the sweetest icing on the cake and we all are so grateful,” says Author and Access Hollywood host Shaun Robinson.
In a Perfect World youth ambassadors will also discuss their community service projects and what it means to give back. All youth participants will organize and assemble a back to school backpack drive, to benefit a Los Angeles classroom in need.
Manuela Testolini, founder of In a Perfect World says, "I am incredibly inspired to see this amazing group of women come together, to empower and inspire teen girls for what will be a once in a lifetime experience.
