In this episode we interview the founder of non-profit, 1 Year to Empowerment which was created in 2014 by Dr. Samantha Scott, Psychologist at The Child & Family Center in Salisbury, MD. At the time, Dr. Scott saw the need to help high school girls here on the Shore take part in hands-on experiences that prove how good it feels to be supported and to engage in healthy behaviors. From there, the concept of an entire year of empowering experiences was born! They provide a free and year-long program that promotes self-esteem, self-respect, and self-reliance and empowers middle and high school girls to make healthy choices, trusting friendships, and attainable goals. Their vision is to empower middle and high school girls to live happy, healthy, and balanced lives. Also in this interview is one of the Empowerees, Daisy. Daisy is 18 and a Senior at Parkside High School. She was in the 2017 Empowerment Program.
