There aren't many people who take the time to reach out and share their stories in order help guide young women. PowerplayNYC does just that. I had the privledge of participating in the 2011 SuperSTARS Summer Leadership program. PowerPlay gave 30 young women from diverse backgrounds and opportunity to learn and grow together. Topics taught to us ranged from day to day. We learned how network, how to write a resume and how to carry ourselves into the work force. Amongst these things and many more, PowerPlay taught us the importance of a firm hand shake and a simple smile. We were introduced to many different sports and the significant role sports play in our lives. At the PowerPlay Talk Show, participants spoke about a social action topic they discovered, while others handed out their newsletters and displayed a video they worked on. A year later, many of us still keep in contact with each other and our counselors. PowerPlay continues to host Alumni events and encourages participants to return. All in all, PowerPlay was one of the best experiences I have ever had.
