Mahisha Dellinger, CURLS CEO and Founder, said, “My goal of giving young women access to resources and connections were truly realized. Having our girls meet face-to-face with women who have and are still succeeding will empower them to live the lives they have always desired. This is only the beginning.”

Over 100 girls were paired with accomplished ‘Celebrity Expert Mentors’ in various industries so they could begin to learn how they can also make their dreams come true. During the event the Mentors began their connection with the girls by sharing their life and careers lessons

The connections will continue over the summer and fall of 2016, with the ‘Celebrity Expert Mentors’ also hosting seminars and workshops for the girls on a broad range of topics from business writing to event production.
