Through public speaking workshops, mentorship meet-ups, and social excursions, girls not only enhance their capacity to tackle academic rigor but are equipped with the confidence and voice to write and speak about taboo topics in their communities. This approach of embedding Social Emotional Learning into girls’ education empowers girls with the social-emotional skills to think critically and make informed decisions as socially conscious young leaders.
    Explore Sexy Like A Book’s Enchanting Voices Anthology (Book One), written by the first cohort of young writers. Proceeds from the book support the provision of scholarships and educational resources to girls in rural Liberia. A second anthology, written by cohort two, will be released later in 2021.
    An accomplished author, award-winning poet, former Miss Liberia, and a firm believer in the transformative power of education, Patrice is a Steering Committee Member of Karanga - The Global Alliance for Social-Emotional Learning and Life Skills. She also supports the Liberia Literary Society as a board member and editor.

Love the podcast

Avis Boone invites profesional women to talk about their career and their road to success.

The women featured tell personal and candid stories without shying way from discussing the ups as well as the downs of their journey. Not only they are informative, they are also inspiring.

Highly recommended!!

Valuable

Avis, this was great! I’m not an actor, but everything you ladies shared is applicable to everyone.
I enjoyed hearing you both share about your experiences with what you perceived as rejection or failure. Again, totally relatable.
Thanks for sharing!
