On December 14th, 2019, STARS CGI, with PowerPlay serving as the lead agency, in collaboration with NIKE hosted #SelfCareSaturday. Our #SelfCareSaturday event served to connect young women and gender non-conforming youth to resources that support their overall well-being. The over 200 young people in attendance engaged in amazing discussions and activities around Wellness and Mental Health, while gathering tools that they can use on their own timing. Our panelist lineup consisted of three fantastic women whose authentic and raw approach to self-care captivated our youth audience. They included:
Akira Armstrong, founder of the Pretty BIG Movement – a dance company catering to plus sized dancers
Phaidra Knight, former international athlete, sports media talent, motivational speaker, lawyer, and business entrepreneur.
Nicole Cardoza, yoga instructor and entrepreneur passionate about the reclamation of healing.
Shantae Edwards (Moderator), empowerment speaker and impact coach, committed to motivating, facilitating and building relationships for the purposes of accessing equity, education, social and economic sustainability.
