Sitemap The Houston weekend event kicked off on Friday March 20 and offered everything from positive reinforcement to mentorship.  The girls were able to set career goals with vision boards, learn how to “Dress for Success” with a Macy’s representative and acquire team building and leadership skills with the assistance from NBA/WNBA siblings such as; Jimmelle Melvin, sister of WNBA legend Chasity Melvin and Phebe Smith, sister of NBA player Josh Smith. We also had special celebrity guests who spoke to the girls, including; Jahaziel Howard, coach of Howard Elite AAU team; Tanesha Barefield, owner of Crossover Athletics; Dana Jackson, radio personality, Majic 102.1; Simone Eli, sports anchor, KPRC2; and WNBA All-Star Tina Thompson, who spoke to the young ladies about working hard and staying focused in all aspects of life. Friday ended on a high note with a powerful message from Judge Clarease Rankin-Yates who was the first African-American woman in history, to be appointed to the United States Immigration Court. The second day of the camp started with an introduction to dinner etiquette from Jamie Bertrand, founder/broker of Elite Real Estate Services. Then 10 young ladies who met scholastic and athletic ability enjoyed a private luncheon at Outback Steakhouse at Meyerland Mall which was followed by ice skating at the Galleria Mall.
