Young, Curvy & Empowered (Youth Panel Discussion)

Often, life for a teenager is like standing at crossroads: many choices to make in academics, career, relationships; wanting to break free to make an identity yet fearful of the road that lies ahead.

The mission of the Young, Curvy and Empowered panel is to encourage plus size female teens to make informed choices through education, research and positive imagery. Our panel discussion will focus on lifestyle issues associated with being a teen (with an emphasis on plus size teens) in the Y2K11 and spotlighting our esteemed group of panelists who will share their stories of successful achievements in various industries.
