Girls Fight Back with The Winston-Salem Jaycees

The Winston-Salem Jaycees are an awesome organization that I have been a part of for almost a year now.  They focus on providing social and community service opportunities for young people in my hometown.  When they expressed interest in offering a self-defense class for members, I jumped at the chance to volunteer my time!  We had a small, but mighty turnout of powerful women warriors.

My favorite thing about doing community programs is seeing the diverse types of people who attend.  For this program, I particularly loved seeing a mom in the audience with her two college-aged daughters.  I say the family who fights violence together, stays together!

As much as I love travelling with GFB, there is something incredibly powerful about these local programs and knowing that I’m doing my part to make my little corner of the world a bit safer.  As we close the door on 2013 and look to 2014, I hope I can do more to bring the Girls Fight Back message to my friends, family, and neighbors!

    suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?

    It’s an amazing piece of writing designed for all the online viewers; they will take advantage from it I am sure.


    I have been browsing online greater than three hours today, yet I by no means found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s pretty price sufficient for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material
    as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever


    Wow, this piece of writing is pleasant, my younger sister is analyzing these kinds of things, thus I am going to
    let know her.

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard
    time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had
    to ask! scoliosis surgery scoliosis
