A recent all-girls motivational assembly at Kimball High School encouraged the female students to realize that they have the potential to turn the world upside down in the best way possible.
The theme of the school’s second-annual Girls Motivational Assembly was “Defining Moments.” The assembly’s goal was to bridge all ages and ethnicities and inspire the school’s female students to pursue greatness.
“This program was designed to encourage, motivate, inspire and challenge you to think differently and to be the best you can be,” Kimball Assistant Principal Tracy Mayfield-Edwards said.
Multiple female school and community leaders shared inspiring words with the students. They repeatedly told the students that they would face hardships and adversity, but that those are the defining moments that they can overcome and become stronger as a result.
Dee Dee McGuire, radio host of DeDe in the Morning on K104, shared her own story of how she overcame adversity to become one of the only women in the country with her own radio show baring her own name.
“No matter what you face as young women, whatever adversity you have to overcome, I am living proof that you can achieve whatever you want,” McGuire said. “I believe in each and everyone of you.”
