Homegirl Cafe & Catering participated in TEDxWomen on Thursday, December 1st. This inspiring event brought together women and girls in New York and Los Angeles via a live video feed. This TEDx was hosted at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills. Shayna Welcher & Ivy Navarrete represented Homegirl Cafe and spoke about their personal experiences in the ReImagine workshop hosted by Lisa Ling. Click here to see the video of Ivy and Shayna's speech. They both did an incredible job speaking about their lives and everyone was so touched by their stories. More importantly, everyone was inspired by the strength and courage they have shown in changing their lives for the better, and in choosing to serve themselves and their community at Homegirl Cafe.
