This is the largest event held in Colorado that focuses on African American girls. Framed by the philosophy “The Price of Dignity,” and “The Standard of Excellence,” the EspeciallyMe™ Conference has been able to address a multitude of issues impacting the lifestyle, spirit, dignity and personal values of African American young ladies in high school and the many factors today that diminish personal self-worth and self-value. The mission of EspeciallyMe™ is to promote and facilitate ideas, attitudes, goals and lifestyles that will encourage school age youth to adopt and sustain concepts of positive self-value and dignity in defining and pursuing success and excellence. In addition to the conference, there is an adult workshop that assists parents, guardians, teachers and administrators.
