Ladies: How Do You Ignite Your Radiance?

As Jolkona gears up for International Women’s Day, several of our female supporters joined others from the greater Seattle area to discuss how improving health, wealth and community ties helps women and girls achieve personal and professional success. The Feb. 20 event, “Ignite Your Radiance,” was hosted by Michelle Wong, a lifestyle/financial freedom strategist, with proceeds benefiting Jolkona operations.

The first speaker was our CEO and co-founder, Nadia Mahmud. Opening up with a quote from Malcolm X, Nadia captured the heart of the giving spirit, and how a philosophy of generosity can improve a woman’s personal and communal quality of life:

Dianne Juhl, the founder of the Feminine Face of Money, offered insight into the transformative power of financial freedom for women:

The last speaker invited the audience to get up and dance, literally!  See why Jamie Silverstein, a retired Olympic ice dancer and now owner of the Grinning Yogi Studio, believes we all can be moved and inspired:
