Several D.E.S.I. clients and educators recently visited the Ultimate Women’s Expo at the LA Convention Center, in order to connect with peers, get some tips and learn what it means to be successful as a modern woman!

The clients were very excited to hear from singer, songwriter, television star and entrepreneur Chiquis Rivera. Her powerful message of positivity was well received by the entire group. Her stores about struggling with abuse were especially powerful, according to educator Alejandra. The takeaway message was that success is possible, no matter what life has in store for you.

Keynote speaker Chiquis Rivera gave a great speech on female empowerment.

After the opening remarks, the group hit the convention floor. There were many different activities for the ladies to participate in. Sandy and her sister Zenia decided to take advantage of a free makeover service, and had a blast in the process! They also learned some great tips on home application.

Special thanks to the staff at My Beauty Mark Makeup Academy for making this happen! 

Community is key at D.E.S.I., and community outings like this allow our clients to practice a wide variety of skills. These ladies practiced their public transportation skills while traveling to and from the event. They practiced making choices by planning out their activities for the day, and leading the way at all steps. They got to observe professional attire at an on-site fashion show, and learned about different personal care activities throughout the conference. They even got to practice personal finance skills by making smart choices at lunch time!

We couldn’t be more proud of our clients, who are always looking to expand their horizons, explore their communities and experience all that life has to offer!
