Evolving Images girls empowerment group enjoyed an inspiring visit from a local author. Katina Rayford, who is the mother of an IDEA scholar, wrote and recently published on Amazon the book 22 - We Repeat What We Don't Repair; When You Accept Your Past, No One Can Use It Against You. Rayford shared the personal stories that inspired her to write the book, and brought copies for all the girls and signed them. She also gave each girl a sample of lip gloss from her new line of makeup.
"The young ladies truly enjoyed hearing the author's story and we also had enough time to ask questions," said Tonya Reeves, who sponsors Evolving Images. The next time the group met, the girls discussed whether they related to the author's story.
