June 22 Soiree

The June 22nd Women Empowerment SOIREE was held at the Embassy Suites in Beachwood Ohio and hosted by the WEPED Aziza Yasmine. Participants were asked to donate $20 to the WEP and patronize vendors currently starting up their businesses. Vendors included Shila Iris Aka “Kush Queendom”  Gloria Jalil of Peak of Elegance, Kari Taylor of Kari Kawai Jewelry, and Paradise Natural Products. The guest speaker was Senegalese fashion designer Esther Dassanou of Enefashionhouse.net and founder of Emma Magazine, “Africa’s perspective through the woman’s eye”. Esther works for the World Bank and traveled from Washington D.C. to grace us with her presence. During her presentation she discussed the passion we all must have in order to be successful in whatever we choose to do as a career. She told the ladies that nothing is possible without first having FAITH. Her positive energy radiated giving us a powerful message; all things are possible when you put God first. Esther currently sells her merchandise via Enefashionhouse.net but aspires to one day have a department in a major anchor store like Macys, Saks or Nordstrom. We will all be praying for her success!
