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!
