a bad breakup almost two years ago when she gathered a group of friends, some wine and food in her home as a way to not only help herself get through the difficult time but to help others going through similar situations as well. However, she had no idea the impact that particular get-together would have.
“I went through a really bad breakup and was going through a whole bunch of different things and I thought ‘man I know there are other women who are probably dealing with some of the things that I’m going through,’ so I had a meet up at my house and maybe about fifteen women come over,” Jones said. “We did vision boards and then we put questions in a basket and went around the room and one person would pull a question from the basket not knowing who asked the question and all of us would get an opportunity to answer to help them out with whatever they were going through…and it was really empowering.”
After the initial turnout, Jones hosted another get-together and had even more women show up, which then inspired her to think on a bigger scale and create the lifestyle brand, Sisters in Power. Since its first event in Houston about a year and a half ago, Jones and her team have gone on to host events in multiple cities across the country, featuring celebrity panel guests such as Tami Roman, Toya Wright, and Shaunie O’Neal.
At the Sisters in Power event taking place in Dallas next month, attendees can expect a whole new experience compared to previous events. “This one is going to be really different from any of our other events and it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Jones said. Ticket holders will be able to learn more about breast cancer awareness, participate in giveaways, ask the celebrity panel guests questions about difficulties they’ve faced in life, as well as attend the event’s fashion show and live performances.
Attendees can expect to see local talent from vendors and performers to fashion designers and models, as well as, R&B singer Avant who will not only be a featured guest on the panel but is scheduled to perform at the event as well. Additionally, Project Runway season 15 contestant, Latasha Henderson-Robinson, will have her designs featured on the runway and the Sisters in Power team are also in the process of working on having 12-year-old Flexin In My Complexion founder, Kheris Rogers, join the event.
Although the upcoming event is expected to be different from the others, one thing that will for sure
