The OK2B Me Conference was absolutely mind altering! I came expecting great things but we received AMAZING. The volunteers, the attendees, & the speakers were motivating, energetic, passionate, & knowledgeable. The keynote was the icing on the cake!!

This type of conference is necessary for young girls who may be struggling with being a teen. I believe people walked away with NEW information & knowing that they are NOT alone!!

I've been to several girls conference but this one ranks at the top!!

Looking forward to 2014 conference.

Seed of Hope is doing excellent work with young women in the Greater Chicagoland area. By providing mentoring services, leadership opportunities, and workshops and events, this foundation is really equipping young women with the tools they need to be successful in adulthood. I had the honor to attend their 2013 OK2B Manifesting the Dream Conference with a group of teen girls I mentor, and i was thoroughly impressed with the high quality workshops they provided the girls. I plan to continue working with Seed of Hope to be a part of the awesome work they are doing to help our girls strengthen their self-esteem, leadership skills, and vision for their futures.

I have never seen a non-profit as well organized and structured as SOH. The level of professionalism and commitment that they display sets a great example for the girls that they service. They have meticulously created a nurturing environment in which the girls feel safe and secure. They are able to open up and share as well as receive instruction and empowerment. I have witnessed first hand the impact that this organization is making and am very grateful for them.

I have known Gwen for at least ten years now. She is one of the most supportive and inspirational women I know. She is a positive role model for not only the youth she serves, but for all lives she touches!!!
