Businesswoman and musician Suzette Quintanilla, sister of Selena Quintanilla, spoke to the girls participating in the program. The hope is that the speaker program will help motivate the young women to chase their dreams.
"There are so many influential women in this community that would be so great for these girls to learn from, and we thought, what better way than to invite these women personally and come talk to these young girls, and show them the experiences that they've had and the accomplishments," said Kristen Bily of Chicas Rock. "And also the great result of what hard work has come to them."
The response has been so great to this speaker series, that it may just extend past the month of November.
