"Rising Up"

Rising Up

Sparks of Sisterhood


Connected in sisterhood, united we rise.


We the sisters of Young Women’s Preparatory Network rose up together to create this fused glass installation.  We created this piece by cutting shards of colored glass and arranging them into the three rising figures.  The meaning is intertwined in both the piece and experience of the camp itself— that being the power of sisterhood and the spark ignited by the inspiration of a powerful female role model, Carlyn Ray.


These three sisters all fueled by their innovation, creativity and determination support and help each other blossom into leaders for the next generation.


The YWPN has been a foundation for young leaders like us across the state of Texas and has supported experiences such as Art Reaching Out, the glass blowing STEAM Camp where this piece was created.  The YWPN continues to spark a girl’s journey and create an eternal sisterhood where driven girls learn the importance of uplifting each other to greater heights.
