Thank You Alexandra, Ana, Kelly, and Nashely
I want to thank Alexandra Hoang, Kelly Trinh, Ana Rivas, and Nashely Ruiz for their constant support with the writing of Realizing a Vision, Your Tool Kit for Success.
Their review and totally honest feedback has been a greatly appreciated. They also served as members of the Girls’ C.E.O. Connection Young Ambassadors. From managing the content of our social media platforms to conducting video interviews of accomplished female entrepreneurs these four young women have been indispensable. Alexandra, Ana,Kelly, and Nashely were the ones being interviewed. Thank you again ladies and I hope you will be part of our final editing process.
Getting Together to Share about the Realizing a Vision Conferences, Joining the Young Ambassadors, along with Teen and Women Entrepreneurs as Role Models.
We met in Ontario CA to talk about how the girls got involved with the Girls’ C.E.O. Connection Young Ambassadors, entrepreneurs in their high schools, and the influence of women in business. The video pretty much says it all in a nutshell. One disclosure: the discussion was much like you see on The View television show-unscripted and unrehearsed.
Unfortunately not all the members could join us. Nashely was on her way back to college and Ana was unavailable.
Ana Cristell Rivas–A friend of Girls’ C.E.O. Connection since the first Realizing a Vision conference, November 1, 2008.
Ana came to the first Realizing a Vision conference when she was 14 years old. She lives in Los Angeles’ Echo Park area and attends the Downtown Magnets High School in Los Angeles (fashion magnet). Like some of our other team members Ana attended the Academy of Business Leadership after her freshman year of high school. Ana loves fashion and the business of fashion. Her career choice is to be a traveling photo journalist.
The Young Ambassador’s Team provides essential feedback during the wrap up session of the planning of the future Realizing a Vision conferences. The team advices on ways to market to their peers and makes suggestions on what to have on our blog and Facebook Pages. We are adding new team members as we move forward.
