As I nurse my two month old daughter, I gaze in to her crystal blue eyes and wonder what she will be when she grows up! Will she go into the medical field and help injured people like her mother? Will she be an amazing sales women like her father? A firefighter? A plumber? Prime Minister? The opportunities are endless.
On Tuesday, I was privileged to be able to attend an inspiring and informative Barbie Tweet- up hosted by Kathy Buckworth with my daughter and two best friends. The Tweet up was held in the heart of Toronto at the beautiful Panorama at the 51st floor of the Manulife center. We celebrated the launch of the new website BARBIE I CAN BE THE VOICE which was created to empower and mentor girls. The website features parent blogs, monthly articles and creative advice to help women encourage their daughters “dream it all, learn it all and live it all –to explore a world without limits”.
The exciting night provided pink cocktails, delicious tapas, a great opportunity for net working and an amazing presentation from the keynote speaker, Terry Carson, the Parenting Coach. The support and information gained at this event as well as the launch of this website, provides me with the confidence and ability to help my daughter achieve her wildest dreams.
I can be….
