On Friday, August 6, 2010, In a Perfect World and Shaun Robinson presented the first annual “I AM PERFECT – EXACTLY AS I AM” event, sponsored by Dove ®. The informal brunch, hosted by Shaun Robinson and Manuela Testolini, celebrated a notable group of exceptional teenage girls and helped reach a collaborative mission to empower children and youth to become compassionate, socially conscious and responsible leaders.
Special invited celebrity friends Laila Ali, Niecy Nash, Monique Coleman, Vanessa Simmons, Pauletta Washington, and Garcelle Beauvais, donated their time to this extraordinary event. All shared candid advice to teenage girls on what it takes to believe in themselves. Others shared personal life experiences and stories, as well as excerpts from a book written by Shaun Robinson, titled “Exactly as I Am”.
“I wanted to bring together a group of girls to experience a wonderfully inspiring day of beauty and empowerment – to help each one of them know how unique and special they are. Having women that these girls look up to, come and share in this day with them, is the sweetest icing on the cake and we all are so grateful,” says Author and Access Hollywood host Shaun Robinson. >>read more
