Girls Who Ignite Change in Boston

Last Tuesday, I was thrilled to be a guest at the IGNITE Change Awards Banquet hosted by Boston GLOW, a girl-power organization founded by several dynamic twenty-somethings, including my friend A.C. Gaughen, a YA author.

Along with Deb Sloan, Sarah Aronson, Anna Staniszewski and Angie Frazier, I served as a panelist to judge the essay contest. It was delightful to be in attendance as Boston Glow distributed $5000 in scholarship prizes to the winners, a group of gorgeous, strong, smart young women. Enjoy the videos created by Nacie Carson, founder of The Life Uncommon, to get a taste of the event.

The IGNITE Change Essay Contest Awards Banquet was held on April 12, 2011,
and awarded $5000 in scholarship prizes to Boston-area teen girls.

Meet the finalists and glimpse a bit of their vision to improve life in their communities.
