Next Saturday, March 19th, join us in attending a one of a kind Book Exhibit + Release Party for “Damaged Goods | Learning, Growing & Letting Go” by Olga Maria Marroquin as we walk throught the mind of “Mella”
Liberating “Mella” Exhibit:
An extension of the book “Damaged Goods – Learning, Growing, and Letting go” – explores a young woman’s (Mella) journey of self-discovery with an enthralling art exhibit that brings the book to life, and takes the viewer on a visual story-telling tour of her transformation from negative to triumphant.
Hosted by Daisy De La Cruz of De La Croix Media Group, a special word by Bridgette Outten Vice President & Editor-in-Chief of It’s Not Enough to Dream Women’s Small Business Circle & Magazine, Eclectic Hip-Hop and Indie sounds by D.J Mr. West, displaying original works by: Alex V.

“Liberating Mella” Philosophy:
Mella is anyone who has battled with insecurities of not fitting in to a world that is molded to a specific shape – and if you don’t
fit in it, you are judged, condemned, and labeled for it. She’s a celebration and positive reinforcement for those times when we
don’t feel like being different is necessarily a good thing. This is testament of the power you hold when you take life’s uncomfort-
able moments and turn them into fuel.
Mella aims to expand, culture, and liberate the mind from the shackles of main stream media and social expectations – so that young women can be aware of the great power they harvest inside of themselves and use it to its greatest potential
How beautiful and unique does this sound?
We are all looking forward to this wonderful event. We hope you join us in supporting a powerful sister.
