SPRINGFIELD, Mo.–Little girls around town got a dose of pink carpet empowerment Thursday night to celebrate their amazing selves.

The Veridian hosted the 4th annual “Amazingly Me” girls self-esteem conference.

Girls from ages 8 to 18 gained advice on creating a healthy self-esteem, leadership skills, and friendships while learning how to make positive decisions.

Creator Kaijuanda Sutton is a certified girls empowerment coach, author, and activist.

She says she grew up with low confidence now she wants to be a role model for girls.

Such as Madi Phillips who performed at the conference.

“Well, I just think it’s really important for people to be an individual and find what they love and express themselves through what they love. For me, that’s music. So, I just want other people to be as happy as I am expressing themselves,” said Philips.

Sutton says the goal is to take this event to cities around the globe.
