For our final meeting of the school year, EmpowHerX held a special meeting and potluck in honor of our seniors! Each member volunteered to bring a sweet treat or a breakfast bite, making for a wonderful end-of-the-year feast. While enjoying the goodies, we discussed the highlights of the year and ways in which we could improve moving forward. Each senior also shared a final piece of advice with the younger members based on their college-planning experience. Alexandra and Claira concluded the session by awarding each member with an EmpowHerX "diploma" containing motivational stickers and a bracelet.
Thank you to all who have supported EmpowHerX this past year, and we look forward to seeing you again in the fall! Have a great summer!

On March 14th, our gals at EmpowHerX embraced their fighting spirit with an introductory course taught by Gracie Jiu Jitsu Phoenix. From awareness training to physical self defense, we learned how to escape various dangerous situations quickly and effectively. From defending against wrist grabbing to choking, the expertise of Gracie Jiu Jitsu's instructors armed us with life-saving tips and techniques.
A huge thank you to our Self Defense Committee and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Phoenix for hosting this fantastic event!
Our next meeting is scheduled for April 18th! Keep an eye out for further information in the coming weeks!
On February 7th, we met in-person for the first time (social distanced style) at the Japanese Friendship Garden. We began our meeting with an ice-breaker, sharing a piece of information from each of our own family's cultures. We then enjoyed Japanese mochi and other snacks while listening to a Japanese language lesson by Alexandra. She shared basic greetings in Japanese and taught us how to introduce ourselves.
We then took a self-guided tour through the gorgeous gardens while talking and enjoying the beautiful day as well as all that the garden has to offer. We were so excited to finally meet in-person!
A huge thank you to our Cultural Committee and Alexandra for a wildly successful meeting!
Get ready for our next meeting on March 14th, look out for additional information to come!
On December 6th, EmpowHerX had the honor of hearing from three incredible women who have succeeded in various careers: Air Force, Advocacy, Business Entrepreneurship, and Medicine. Each speaker gave a brief description of their daily life in their respective fields, explained how they came to their position, and shared advice with aspiring female leaders. This allowed our young women to witness their limitless career possibilities and inspired them to pursue their passions.
Thank you so much to our Career Exploration Committee for hosting a fantastic meeting!
