Sisters in Power was founded by Push Thru, which consists of 3 women who felt there was a need for an atmosphere where women from all walks of life could genuinely get to know, support and inspire one another. Sisters in Power was created as a judge-free zone, where all women can learn how to grow and reach their highest potential. The Sisters in Power launched a national tour in November of 2016 to bring the concept to cities around the U.S. with the hope of inspiring women to feel confident about themselves and go out and be successful. The events include a panel of celebrities and other entertainment industry professionals strategically hand-picked to ensure that women are getting the most out of their experience. The goal of each event is for women to leave feeling empowered, supported, spiritually fed, and ready to take over the world.
The Dallas, TX leg of the tour included the following panelists; Cynthia Bailey – Model, Entrepreneur & Television personality of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Deya Direct – former Miss Black America, Author & Lifestyle Coach, JJ on the Mic – Radio Personality, Author & Mentor, Kecia J – HIV/ Aids Educator, Mentor & Author, Kyla Pratt – Actress & Dr. Meme Brown – Author & Confidence Coach. The event was filled with great energy and a shopping experience hosted by vendors from different cities who traveled to Dallas to participate in such a great event. The event opened with a performance from Olivia Bell of Brown Girls do ballet. Olivia, an ambassador for Brown Girls do ballet was a true presentation of grace, and she graced the stage with her performance. The performance was preceded by the panel with the ladies diving right into the decision, tackling personal trials and tribulations that they experienced, and even opening up about issues that played out in the media they had not been discussed on other platforms. The event was inspiring and left the attendees feeling connected. Sometimes in life, we experience things and privately fall apart thinking that we are the only ones dealing with a particular issue. It was refreshing to hear the women’s stories and how they overcame their personal trials and tribulations.
