"Every girl holds an internal flame rekindled by her passions and the support of a family and her sisterhood.  The YWPN has been a stepping stone for dozens of girls across Texas and has supported experiences such as Art Reaching Out- the glassblowing camp where the piece was created.

The YWPN continues to light up girls journey and creating an eternal sisterhood where girl’s learn to be their sister’s keeper."
