BE U Girls Conference 2017 was a weekend of fun, discovery and friendships. It was amazing!! The
empowerment, encouragement and enlightenment were contagious! Girls truly learned what it means
to be (beautiful, extraordinary and unique) a BE U Girl. Some of the key ideas of this event were to know
how your personal profile reflects to the world how you really want to be known or how you think you
should be known. Information was shared unwrapping the myths and truths about what young ladies
should expect during their first year of college such as managing academics, social and spiritual life, and
Bullying was a hot topic because it is everywhere and is fueled by technology or
oftentimes a culture that permits or ignores it altogether. The girls learned that life can be boring,
bound or limited when they carry jealousy in our hearts for our sisters! Envy is like poison and will
crumble your life.
The BE U Girls Band was everything! Their energy and cool sounds kept us clapping, bouncing and
swaying. Our Zumba party was packed and “Jinelle” brought it! What fun we had. So many girls shared
their talents in song, dance and the spoken word! We’re already gearing up for the next BE U Girls
Conference 2018! We are looking in the northern Virginia area so get ready!!
Our awesome guests included the beautiful Meagan Good, an American actress, Y’Anna Crawley, 2009
BET Sunday Best Winner, Elecia James, aka “The Girls Ambassador” and other amazing workshops
A special thank you goes to the Women’s Ministries Department of the Allegheny East
Conference who graciously hosted our conference at the historical Lancaster Marriott Hotel. The hotel
was beautiful and the service was on point. All in all, our “Babygirls” who are at the heart of our passion
and work is what kept us going. Until the next BE U Girls Conference. Take care!!
