[MIAMI] – The Queen Activators program, held earlier this month, inspired over 40 young girls from the Homestead and South Dade area community organizations. Askcolestars, who produced the girl empowerment event at the Womanish Exhibit in Wynwood, continued their mission of producing projects that connect women in business, government, nonprofit, and faith-based organizations to better serve the residents of that community.

Co-founders of Askcolestars Natalie Rowe & Sharon E.A. Coleman partnered with Dibia DREAM and I’Tita N. Finch, Visionary of Queen Activators & Founder of Act Nation, to create a day of inspiration and empowerment for young mentees called Queen Scholars.

Making Herstory

“Queen Activators fosters a platform to engage emergent leaders with successful women, currently making herstory within politics, business, and their community,” says Finch. In addition, Miami-Dade County First-ever Women Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and other local officials and women leaders lent their voices to encourage and inspire the young girls. They each showed them a glimpse of what they can become with hard work and dedication; Activating vision and leadership in the scholars.


The Queen’s Talk panel of women trailblazers included the City of Homestead Councilwoman Jenifer N. Bailey, Miami Dade School Board Member District 9 Luisa Santos, Neidy Hornsby, Esq, Owner of NOIRIP, Juana Jones, Owner of Jali Creatives Marketing, and was moderated by I’Tita N. Finch, Founder of Act Nation. The overall tone reminded the girls they are powerful and can do anything they set out to achieve. In addition, Miami-Dade District 8 Commissioner Danielle Cohen Higgins sent an inspiring video that was shared with the girls.
