WOPN has been a great big breath of fresh air. Dedicated to making a difference in the lives of many and accomplishing their goal is no small feat. I wish them continued success as they work to achieve more. I am proud to be a member, one who will actively recruit more members within my state, NJ.

Women of Power seeks to empower women of all ages, colors, shapes and sizes to challenge societal norms through the use of education and dialogue to not only understand the issues affecting us, but to also give them the voice they may not know they had. Its a place where all feel welcomed and a part of the process.

Being a part of the show and sharing my own thought and feelings with others. I've learned a lot about how culture impacts us as women, particularly those of us caught between the American culture and another one.

As a public school educator for the past 30+ years I am impressed with the works WOPN has achieved since its inception. My hats go off to the dedication of its founder, Mrs. LeKeesha Miller-Jackson. Her vision has been made a reality. WOPN has been helping those who are in need of sustaining their existence from helping with a local food drive to mentoring young women. I have been a proud member of WOPN and look forward to participating in the panel discussions and workshops offered for women of all ages. Organizations like WOPN are too few. I believe this is an organization that will continue to grow in its membership as it does the much needed and necessary work for all women.

I've had a chance to see WOPN in action for a couple of years now. I was particularly impressed to know that the active membership included women from several different states. I have seen WOPN host events that address a multitude of issues that women face, real tough issues, that sometimes others are afraid to talk about. I am excited about the current focus on developing leadership skills in younger women through the mentoring program.

I am a mentee for WOPN and it is a very uplifting program. Through the program I have gained new friends and confidence in my hidden talents. WOPN has provided me with a mentor in college and a professional mentor to help me find my path for my future. WOPN is an excellent program and we can really use the money.

I am a mentor for this awesome organization! I really enjoy being part of this group because I have been able to meet new people, make new friends, and learn more about the amazing power each woman has! Together we learn about each other and we focus on our strengths. I have the opportunity to see this young ladies grow into successful individuals. I am able to help my mentee with her school work and provide advice.

Perhaps spend more time learning about the roles of women in society today and how to adjust to it. Provide motion for young girls so they can complete their education and make good choices in life.

WOPN is a positive program. Not only do they help us try to get into college but we're like a big huge sisterhood! We do programs not only to better ourselves but others too. We do activities on the weekends to give us something to do, and our meetings are powerful; I can never say we have a dull moment. The women of WOPN look out for our best interests, we have someone to help us with our grades, a mentor that is in majoring in something we want to pursue when we get to college to help guide us and help us. I think we deserve this money. We are a positive uplifting program. When I am with the WOPN program it makes me forget about any other problems that I have; We have fun, and I think if we won this money we would better our program and expand our program not only for us, but for other girls younger and older.. This money can help us do many things to better our program.

WOPN's mission to empower young women to achieve their academic, professional and personal goals is facilitated through a mentoring program designed to meet the individual needs of each student. Students from competitive colleges are selected based on their commitment to female empowerment and passion for learning to mentor young female high school students who have expressed interest in pursuing a college education. The program is an intimate group of inspired and passionate women who collectively work to help the young members of the group gain a sense of appreciation, respect, and pride in their individual strengths and talents.

My work as the College Prep Counselor for the eight female high school student mentees in the program. The connection and bond between the mentors and mentees is inspiring and offers the young girls of WOPN a special opportunity to share friendship with other inspiring intelligent young women.

Our non-profit would greatly benefit from the aid of this contest. It is the initiative's first year in operation and still many infrastructural components are missing. The contest prize money would be used for much needed outreach and staff hiring purposes.
