WILLIAMSBURG — On July 16 there will be a workshop centered around empowering young girls ages 12-15 at the James City County Library.
The GiRLiFE empowerment workshop will run from 1-3 p.m. and is facilitated/hosted by Charissa Marie, founder of Be PHREEE.
“This is a mind and body group for girls and young women that emphasizes principles of self-love, personal power, and the beauty that comes from allowing your light to shine from within,” according to Marie’s website.
The workshop will provide young girls an opportunity to find their voice through, “open dialogue, thought-provoking crafts, and healthy nutrition projects.”
The GiRLiFE organization offers 15 empowerment workshops that are focused on inspiring young girls to believe in themselves and honor their own individuality while also embracing others.
“GiRLiFE is my response to my own inner child. The goal is simple: to show EVERY young girl that she is brilliant beyond measure; that within her lies the strength to live a life that feels good from the inside out,” according to a message from founder Melody Pourmoradi on the organization’s website. “It is an honor to have teamed up with women across the globe who are helping share this message with the girls in their community through our empowerment workshops. Alone, there is only so much I could do. Together, we are introducing girls in all corners of the world to their own unique superpowers.”
Charissa Marie, who will be hosting the event at James City County’s library, has a passion for helping young girls achieve their own confidence and success. She has experience as a mother raising one son and two girls and she encourages them to follow their own goals and dreams.
Marie is also an on-air personality at VYBE 95, where she hosts “Weekends after Dark with Charissa Marie.” She also hosts “Ladies Dates Live” on social media, which continues her mission to empower, encourage, and enlighten one another.
According to a release, “She wants to reach as many young ladies as possible and help them solidify their confidence, self-worth, and overall self-empowerment that we all possess.”
