Turlock, CA (June 4, 2019) – The Stanislaus County Fair is the place for young women to be this summer!

The Stanislaus County Fair has once again partnered with Vintage Faire Mall, Yonan’s Jewelers, Posh Photo Booth, Women’s Education and Leadership League (WELL) and KHOP @ 95.1 to bring guests a resourceful lounge that will help cultivate empowerment and confidence in young women. The empowHER Lounge is dedicated to inspiring girls 16 and older to not only empower themselves, but also those around them.

“The empowHER Lounge is a great source for young women in our community to be exposed to various life topics that may seem basic but can, in fact, determine what type of person they will be as future leaders,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “This lounge will make them aware of the importance of their online image, feeling confident, speaking up when necessary and finding one’s cause, among many other subjects.”

Alkhas created the lounge with the mentality of teaching young women how to support and nurture one another instead of subduing to the female norm of consistently competing and comparing. Setting such a tone will undeniably yield successful leaders of the future. Through informative and interactive workshops, the empowHER Lounge will be able to support this goal. W.E.L.L. Leadership, a woman’s education and leadership league will be providing daily presentations on how one should conduct themselves in different aspects of their daily lives. Guests who sign up for the seminars will also receive a Fair and Vintage Faire Mall Swag bag (maximum of 40 guests per session will be allowed). Guests who sign up and attend an event will also be put into a drawing to win (4) four tickets to Great America from KHOP!
