I’m excited to announce that I will be performing at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco on Tuesday, November 11th as part of The Girl Effect Accelerator. I will also be speaking at this event about something very dear to my heart.
The Girl Effect Accelerator represents the first program of its kind: an international accelerator dedicated exclusively to scaling up ventures that are measurably benefiting girls in poverty. Created in partnership by the Nike Foundation and the Unreasonable Group, this program will align 10 ventures with world-class mentorship, strategic financing, and access to a global network of support to further empower these 10 companies who have the ability to help adolescent women rise out of poverty.
My contribution will be at the capstone event that will close out this accelerator. 1,000 people will convene at the Palace of Fine Arts, and the program will include presentations by the 10 ventures and entrepreneurs. In addition to my musical performances, I will be speaking about something very personal — the courageous journey of my mother, who grew up in a third world country and achieved her goal to have a daughter who could triumph over the kind of oppression she faced, receive an education and achieve the opportunity to follow her dreams. One of my mother’s biggest life goals was to have a daughter who could show the world what was possible when a girl was fully encouraged and empowered, and I am so honored to have the opportunity to speak about this in conjunction with The Girl Effect movement.
