Wear Your C.R.O.W.N A Women Empowerment Event #BeautyFULL

C.R.O.W.N stands for Crisis, Resilience, Ownership, Winning, Now.

Petula Skeete, the founder of #BeautyFULL brought women together in an effort to inspire and uplift one another during her event C.R.O.W.N: A Conversation with Robin Roberts & Jamie Kern Lima on Thursday, March 22nd in downtown New York.

Introducing those awe-inspiring women was Executive Producer for MSNBC Quiana Burns. Anticipation filled the room as she introduced and gave small background information on each guest. Undoubtedly the highlight of the night and main event was the candid conversation between Robin Roberts (Good Morning America News Lead Broadcaster) and Jamie Kern (Co-Founder and CEO of IT Cosmetics) as they discussed their personal journeys of success and how they wear their C.R.O.W.N (Crisis, Resilience, Ownership, Winning, Now).

They discussed a few jewels that everyone can relate to:

  1. Get out of your comfort zone!
  2. Be your authentic self! People will respect you and want to work with you more. Leave your ego at the door. 
  3. Never let hearing the word "No" deteriorate you. Keep fighting the fight!
  4. Learn to take risks. 
  5. People will never understand your vision if it's different, you have to make them understand it by showing them your vision. Put in the hard work to prove them wrong!
  6. Learn to look at small victories as big victories. Every single one counts! 
  7. NEVER DIM SOMEONE'S LIGHT TO MAKE YOURS SHINE BRIGHTER! 

Those were just some of the helpful tips they gave the audience. Besides the candied conversation, there was an open bar, along with an IT Cosmetics beauty bar, giving women the option to receive mini make-overs. As well as, a station highlighting items from the international hair care brand Mizani.
