Young Women in Excellence

We had an amazing night last night at our annual Young Women in Excellence program.  I love this program because the girls get to talk about all the work they've done throughout the year on their Personal Progress projects.  Some of these girls have done really inspiring things.  They've set and achieved goals, completed countless hours of service, learned new skills and increased their self-confidence.

Emma and a friend decided this year to take on the responsibility of making all the food for YWIE as one of their 10 hour projects.  They spent most of Saturday planning a menu, budgeting and shopping for all their supplies.  And then spent Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday baking, chopping and decorating to make all of this gorgeous food.

I am in awe of these amazing girls.  I love being around them and feeling their energy fill the entire room.  I'm so glad they had a little time last night to bask in the glow of their accomplishments.
