Girls ages 11 to 17, parents, and mentors from Ottawa Hills and the greater Toledo area are invited to "a powerful day of personal unplugged stories told, confidence and strength gained, and inspiration discovered at an event called #BeTheForce, A #TotalPackgeGirl Experience." The event has been organized by Village resident Kristi Hoffman, CEO and Founder of Total Package Global, along with media sponsors WTOL-TV and The Blade.
#BeTheForce will be held Sunday, October 16, from 1-4 p.m. at the Toledo Museum of Art Peristyle.
The goal of the event is to exemplify in “real life” what it means to lead with confidence, to face fear and adversity, to be strong, to #BeTheForce in our world. Everyone has a story and the line-up to tell those stories includes: Dr. Mary Ellen Mazey, President of BGSU; Dr. Sharon Gaber, President of UT; Maya Ramirez, Winner, Project Runway Junior; Jamaia McKinley, award-winning singer; Allie Clifton, Fox News reporter/Cleveland Cavaliers sideline reporter; Karen Marquardt, Assistant Chief, Toledo Fire and Rescue; Alexa Smith - STEM Bioengineering undergraduate student at UT; Bill Geha, counselor and founder of the PEACE project; Emma Carpenter, a brain cancer survivor; and many more amazing individuals.
