On Saturday, February 8th, the Al-Khadija Women’s Empowerment Program continued with a two part workshop at Loyola Marymount University. The day commenced with a healthy breakfast, prepared by Diane Todd of Wholesome Sweets Bakery. Following the meal, Linda Whiteman led a session on financial goals and entrepreneurship. Her presentation sparked much needed conversation about the importance of financial planning and literacy. The participants were able to ask her questions about planning their futures on a personal and financial level as it pertained to pursuing their passions. They also learned how to create a budget and set realistic and healthy financial goals for their future as college students and graduates.
Dr. Amina Humphrey returned for a session on vision boards. She led the participants in an exercise on imagination and goal setting through the creation of vision boards. Each participant shared the inspiration behind their work at the conclusion of the workshop.
The next session of the program will be held at Loyola Marymount University on Feb. 22nd (9am – 1pm) and will feature a lesson on wire-wrapping jewelry by Joanna Cain, MFT.
