We do -- it's different corporations.
So it's a mix of different things and you have how many of these events these -- if you will.
-- month we meet on a weekly -- says and outlook curriculums are six months each and so they -- -- it -- -- the crap the last curriculum that we're actually finishing up right now.
Was based on health so the girls learned about mental health physical health and sexual.
And so when you when you have these six love scenes if you -- right so basically.
Lets see how many girls in -- one time.
-- we had 24 girls at this moment and we meet with them in groups of six on a weekly basis okay.
And and and forward.
For the period of 66 -- yeah right so you guys meet together -- group that seeks out over the course of six months.
In give me an idea specifically like you said your last and -- ways about health so what sort of coatings and they have.
It's definitely from -- education one of my favorite sessions -- yoga we went to your yoga studios uptown.
And we had an amazing yoga and meditation class of the girls and they connected the mental health with the physical health aspect of things -- the girls have an opportunity.
It's -- experience yoga for the very first time and also meditation.
So it was a that was really you know for me an amazing Spain's infinite guns wow you know ditzy girls in the second as your particular demographic that girls studies at the age group -- -- -- opens off and girls in general there's -- specific demographic but we do a lot of our girls you know facing a multitude of different challenges.
From coming from low income families to having challenges such as like losing their mother at an early age so it really varies it varies indeed but let's talk about.
It basically there's some girls out there watching -- parents out there watching.
If perhaps when he -- here daughters involve itself for girls again break yes we're about how would they go about doing so they can visit the website at WW dot huddles about Scott or.

Saying -- even known people might bring -- same mountain king.
Because of those says yes he can.
And another thing that.
I would say when he brings out in me -- brand.
They -- say thank a famous person -- saying that they only have a brain but no average person has claimed silver has found the web -- team.
In knee -- and -- just to have.
-- makeup people to perceive as a positively so they today's teaches about the corn and other things which are printing.
I was in my brain -- distract me and -- would be.
-- -- down -- bad you missed it.
Thank you very thin and what did you want again join -- Well -- the flag and -- -- -- cousin I would say that.
I don't have much of inspiration you have my -- my back time.
Yes intended to that question apple like the questions and Hamas but.
Putted above that another person there that actually shown that it -- other people can't.
Very good very good a casino it as much as moms.
You know months and can kind of get a bad -- sometimes because they have to be there -- good moms are there to encourage you it's that you can do what you can't do it.
A prime example I know they didn't tell me this rings true little -- would you like my mom would always -- right you know.
She knew I was really studying hard for particulars -- an -- or something.
And I come back with a great race because I knew you could do it in -- The mind is what's really I really really worked hard at -- Let me just tell me you knew I could do so again I worked my -- -- to make -- happen -- any means out and having -- -- he read my mom is the best you know absolutely so.
On you have been through -- -- -- it's now which is again just for -- you're just tuning -- we're talking to girls and -- and bills -- mentoring group.

You -- that -- that -- I've done Ricky and beer every now.
That you started with that I had met Somalia and a couple months ago and -- it's really fascinated by you and what you're doing here.
Think they can honestly what you're doing -- is this isn't the idea can hit people who have.
Great idea is they're not always necessarily.
You know somebody somebody else -- have thought about the idea.
Click the Molly did something about it and this is what I like so the reason was very attracted to what you're talking about -- is stuff that I've done.
On an individual basis but it's not about me the point I'm making -- that you -- four steps further.
And you now have started this great organization you're very organized you've got your sponsors and are you looking for more sponsors.
I -- great people working with the program in Iceland asked you why did you decide to do this.
I don't think -- I just wanna say thank you so much I'm very excited to me and to have you boring is this like really means a lot.
I hello 1000 really just happens to me I think so many people each have different passions and different -- and when I started working with young women.
It happened by accident and I didn't realize.
How you know my my life actually just completely started to change and I would be happy as I've ever been and I'm so that happens that's ever been working with them so.
When I realized that it was something that you know my calling I just went -- within and it's I can't explain why I just feel it once you figure out your dream your purpose your passion that's something before -- end zone.
I really -- -- I got.
-- I do this is very important because you do this for those that -- a bit but you also have to.
Have the sponsorship not to have a head and I administrative costs that this growth -- -- at all just for the record.
You have to do it in a way to get -- -- business you have to have a salary you have to have the resources to take this -- lot of these events that you're doing so.
Finally there's a corporation up here who might be interested in sponsoring and linking up with you guys -- they do that.
