On March 7th (last Thursday), SOAR and VUJC held a Young Women Lead conference. The conference was located in Jasper at Vincennes University’s campus, and was available for any high school girl from Dubois, Daviess, Martin, Spencer, Perry, Orange, Pike, and Crawford counties. Julie Carrier, who played a role on MTV’s hit show MADE as a coach, was the guest speaker at the conference. Julie travels to many different schools and events to preach to young women that they can make a difference in the world. She has impacted many lives for teenage girls by making them feel important. Not only was there a famous speaker but they handed out many door prizes. The door prizes varied from massages all the way to an HTP laptop. The food that was served was amazing, and all the volunteer’s were extremely sweet and we are so thankful to of had them. I hope next year they make another conference. If there is another one I will definitely be attending again!
