As you all know, I’m working with the State Farm Neighborhood Assist Program which encourages you all to get involved with the community. I was so inspired to get involved within my own community, so I found an organization that I wanted to spotlight called Fresh Start Women. It is an organization that provides guidance and self-empowerment for women going through career changes, domestic violence, and more. I brought my mom with me to tour the facility!
They hold several seminars for self-esteem, yoga, career services, etc. For certain seminars, EVERYONE in the community can join in. We learned so much about what they do for the women in the community, and a little about ourselves too!
What I found really moving was the fact they encourage asking for help. This really hit home because one of my insecurities is asking for help. I feel dumb. A burden. Prideful. Why do we feel this way? They really instill that asking for help isn’t showing weakness- it’s actually extremely powerful and shows strength. I think it’s really amazing they give women in need everything they need to succeed. The CEO was even a Fresh Start alumni! After touring I’m definitely going to volunteer my time with them! Make Ukulele lessons? How to be a Princess lesson? (lol) I’m so inspired!
