This amazing event was MC’d by the inspiring Akron City Council Woman at Large Veronica Sims.  Council Woman Sims led a line up of powerful speakers as they discussed women’s empowerment, health issues, wellness treatments, and of course financial independence for women. Through stories of their personal tragedies, successes, and life lessons learned they taught those attending how to Find Inside themselves Greatness, Hope, and Tenacity.
