WEEN Academy Looking for Savvy, Fresh Young Women Who Want Careers in Entertainment
In the Summer of 2012, my good friend Christine St. Vil (Moms 'N Charge) and I headed to New York to talk professional dress and interview ettiquitte with the ladies of the Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network (WEEN) Academy. This was one of the most inspiring group of young ladies I've met to date and I had such a great time with them.
Alas, that was the last WEEN Academy program… until now!
Check out the great news from the WEEN Academy Program Director, Latasha Michelle Kennedy:
" Great News! I’m returning this summer as the Program Director for the Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network (WEEN) Academy. I’ve been working with the founders of WEEN in this program since we welcomed our very first class! It’s an extremely rewarding experience and I’m thrilled to meet and guide another group of extraordinary women this summer.
This program is a 4-week crash course in entertainment for young ladies between the ages of 18-22. March 29th we will be holding auditions to select 20 extraordinary women to join our program this summer! See the flyer below and check out weenonline.org for more info!
Whatever it takes to get to New York for the auditions, I encourage you to do it! Be resourceful! Be fearless! The WEEN Academy is a great opportunity for young ladies to meet some extraordinary game changers in the industry and get tangible experience.
If you want a little peek into what our previous auditions were like, just check out the video below:
So if you or someone you know is interested in learning from some of the best in the business, please let them know about the WEEN Academy!
