The Esther Project

me_esther_eventThe Metamorphosis Experience crew had the honor to attend and participate in the 1st annual Esther Project Services Women’s Symposium. As a new non-profit it was a milestone and memorable event. The event addressed the media and its impact on the self-esteem of young girls/young women aged 13-26. The women were from single-parent households and some from foster homes.

Alicia Cass (Metamorphosis Experience founder) gave a motivating perspective to those in the room who were gang associated, made bad decisions, were written off by people or made to believe they were no good. Her message to the crowd was sophisticated simplicity- in just 6 words she helped women under the sound of her voice take the courage to value themselves. She shared “It’s Never Too Late To Change!” That sentence along with her personal story of gang involvement, domestic violence, and returning to school GED touched the crowd on a deep level.
