Olivia Millerschin to perform at Just Pink for Girls™
Unique empowerment and self-esteem building event for girls’ grades 6 through 12
CANTON, MI — March 7, 2013 — iGen Interactive announces the local music talent Olivia Millerschin will be performing during its Just Pink for Girls community event on March 16. Focused on self-esteem enhancement and empowerment for girls ages 10 through 18, the inaugural event will be held at Canton, MI ‘Summit on the Park’ facility. Projected to attract 200+ tweens in the morning and 200+ teens in the afternoon program, this promises to be an extraordinary positive experience for girls in the metro Detroit area.
Supported by local merchants and national brands, the event has a unique message of empowerment for the girls. “Young Girls in this day and age are growing up with more exposure to information arriving from many sources, at a time in their lives when they are transitioning into ‘this is me’. “Issues such as academic competitive pressure, appearance and body image, personal style, relationships, safety and health, bullying and mean girls are top of mind”, says Christine McQueen, founder of iGen Interactive and producer of this event. “Our goal is to inspire the girls to think about their futures starting at age 10. The inspiration a local talent such as Ms. Millerschin can have as a role model on attending girls is immeasurable”
The event presents a smorgasbord of experiences, ranging from safe driving simulators, nail bar beauty makeover, money saving workshop, health and fitness, and much more. Girls can participate in pre-event and on-site contests, such as photo essays using their favorite social media Instagram, facebook, twitter, tumblr etc. Tween girls (8 - 13) are hosted during a morning program and teens girls (13 - 18) are welcome at the afternoon session. Each program will conclude with age-appropriate popular entertainment and a chance to win meet & greet time with the entertainers. Special guests include Miss Black Hawaii Schyler McDougle, Detroit author Jasmin Espy, and others with inspirational messages for girls.
Sponsors for the inaugural Just Pink for Girls™ event include:
Wat-aah!, 88.1 The Park, Best Bank, T-Mobile, Indigo Salon & Day Spa, Layers BeautyBar, Kolderman Dental, Let’s Reconnect, AAA Michigan and others.
