““It was a great experience to meet everyone and to perform at the event. I really learned a lot with True Colors!” said Girl Pow-R member Isabella.”
All-girl pop rock group, Girl Pow-R, performed in the debut Unstoppable Girls conference held on Saturday, April 27th. A free event organized by the Junior League of Hamilton-Burlington to promote self-knowledge and personal empowerment, girls from the Keith neighborhood area were invited to listen to inspirational speaker Talli Osborne and enjoy a live performance from Steven Botelho’s anti-bullying puppet show.
“I believe, it’s my purpose in life, to share the gift that I have been given, the gift of ‘positive thinking and doing’. The story I share is based on the great things I have achieved, the challenges I have faced and how I have overcome them,” said Talli, who was born without arms and with shortened legs, and now tours schools with messages of positivity.
The event began at 9:00 a.m. and, alongside the performances, included workshops on self-esteem, anxiety and mindfulness. Coach and professional speaker, Christine Gardner, of The Gardener’s Group, led the girls in the True Colors exercise, helping them explore their personality types, their strengths, and personal challenges. Breakfast and lunch were provided, with the ladies of Girl Pow-R capping the event with a 3:00 p.m. performance.
“It was a great experience to meet everyone and to perform at the event. I really learned a lot with True Colors!” said Girl Pow-R member Isabella.
Girl Pow-R delighted the crowd in a 30-minute performance and were then asked for an encore. The group complied, playing another song, and expressed their desire to participate in future Unstoppable Girls conferences.
“We’re very thankful for having been a part of the Junior League’s inaugural program and hope to be back for the next ones,” said Girl Pow-R manager, Dawn Van Dam.
