We had the pleasure of having Eden Bodyworks at MIST to present their "Unleash Your Inner Shero" event. Women and girls of all ages were in attendance to join in on a discussion with actress Simone Missick (Misty Knight in the hit Netflix series "Luke Cage") and Renae Bluitt, founder of inhershoesblog.com. Simone shared her story of growing up in Detroit to where she is now in her life and career and the obstacles and hardships she faced. Ultimately, she wanted each and every person in attendance to understand the power they have in controlling their destiny and not letting anyone or anything stand in their way of their happiness and dreams. Eden Bodyworks donated the proceeds of the event to Petals n Belles, a social development organization created to empower girls and lay down the foundation for them to achieve personal and professional success.
