On Day Two I was excited to see what lessons were in store for us as we all ate breakfast together and then shortly thereafter heading back upstairs to patiently await the life long lessons we would receive on our second day. To my surprise I was excited to hear Amy Dubois-Barnett, Ebony Magazine Editor-In-Chief. I was especially excited because from countless research I had previously discovered that there were very little African-Americans in a role like her and even more a female.
Amy spoke about the following:
1. Have Integrity
2. Do something meaningful everyday
3. Be Happy
4. Get the most out life as you possibly can
5. What you put into the Universe is what you get back!
6. You will get what you put out ten fold
7. Be generous, loving and kind
8. Stay Independent
9. Dream Big and Work towards your goals
The next panel to take the stage was complied of individuals who I have admired for years. The panel was complied of Shameeka Ayers of www.brokesocialite.com, Patrice Yursik Afrobella whom we all know as none other than Afrobella herself, Maggie Mason of www.girl.com, Luvvie Ajayi of www.awesomeluvvie.com, Denene Miller Author and Journalist and Lamar Tyler, Founder of Black and Married. This panel was filled with valuable information that will stay us for years to come.
