PMG Helped These Young Ladies to Step into Their Power

My daughter Clara Huff and I want to thank Yolanda Hinton for bringing us out to present to the Young Women Success Mentoring Program. We had a wonderful experience helping the young ladies to discover how to step into their power. We discussed young girls and women who have stepped into their power including American Heart Association heart ambassador and model/actress/singer Gabrielle Pinkney, Out The Box Ministry mime member and Grassfield High School track star Almoni Ellis, 3-time Olympic Gold Medalist Gabrielle Douglas, award-winning actress Gabourey Sidibe, entertainer and teen fashion icon Willow Smith and First Lady Michelle Obama. Clara, who is the Founder & Artistic Director of My Budding Picasso Art ( and a musician, showed how she steps into her power by playing "Sonata Vivant" on the violin and displaying her most recent artwork.

We played "Convince Me to Buy That Mirror", which was a game in which the young ladies had to convince each other why they should purchase a pink heart blinged out compact mirror. Each of the young ladies that participated in the signature PMG entrepreneurial-focused game received their very own compact mirror. Many of the young ladies were aspiring entrepreneurs and authors so it was a great game to play to see their salesman skills. 

According to the feedback sheets, what the young ladies liked most about our presentation was:

"The music, pep talk and energy" ~ Jalyn H.

"We had the presentation of Clara Huff's artwork". ~ Jaola G.

"The storytelling and discussing our ways of stepping into our power." ~ Kyndall S.

"I got to show my power." ~ Maya T.

As much as the young ladies learned from me, Clara and I learned from them. They were fabulous, fun and full of promise. We forward to seeing the manifestation of them stepping into their power.

Time for “A Movie & A Conversation”

February 20, 2014 (Chesapeake, VA) – In late September 2013, there was a disheartening report on the news about a 12-year-old girl from Florida who had been cyber bullied for an entire year. She eventually changed her Facebook name to "Dead Girl" and sometime later climbed onto a tower and plunged to her death. She was only a year younger than Clara Huff, daughter of Powerhouse Media Group's CEO Feona Sharhran Huff, who has also experienced being bullied.  
"As a mom, educator and youth motivator, this hit home for me," says Feona, who is dedicated to the building up today’s youth. "No child should feel that their only recourse to dealing with bullying is to end their life, take the lives of their bully, quit going to school, etc.” That is why Feona is using PMG’s “A Movie & A Conversation” series to screen the documentary “Bully: PG-13 Version” on Saturday, March 1, 2014, from 11 am to 1 pm at the Indian River Public Library (Chesapeake, VA). Admission is $5.
 Bully: PG-13 Version”, by filmmaker Lee Hirsch, is a character-driven documentary that follows five youth and their families over the course of a school year. It offers insight into the different facets of America’s bullying crisis. The stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter, who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus.
Immediately following the documentary screening, there will be a Q&A discussion led by a panel of community leaders, educators, youth advocates and parents, including Khari Boyd, Keystone Advisor for the Southside Boys & Girls Club, Yolanda Hinton, Author of “Bullying Is Right Underneath Your Nose” and Michael H. Scott, Founder of Parents Coaching Parents Network.
“I am very happy that this documentary screening and discussion is taking place,” says Feona.
“We are losing our youth fast to bullying. I believe that this event will help bring about real solutions so I beckon the community to show up for our kids.”
To find out more about this event as well as to become a sponsor, vendor or to volunteer, please contact Feona Sharhran Huff at (757) 202-3264 or (SUBJECT LINE: Bully PG-13 Version). Visit PMG at Join them on Facebook under Powerhouse Media Group (PMG).

Help Someone As You Would Want Someone to Help You

I was on my laptop doing some work when I felt someone standing to my side. I had seen him out of the side of my eye, but I really didn't think anything of it. I assumed he had stopped at the table to gather his belongings. That is, until he beckoned for my attention and asked me for help. He wanted me to help him fill out a form at the library that asked patrons why they love coming. 

I then realized who he was. This young man has a learning disability. He is always in the library seeking help to get onto the computer and to get things printed. I immediately stopped what I was doing and let him tell me what he wanted me to write. It was three pages worth. Page two almost had me in tears. He said (and I wrote down), "I have a learning disability. I can't pick up. My concentration is messed up..."

Afterwards, I walked with him up to the front desk to staple his forms and slide it in the red decorated box dedicated to this particular library form. Then, I went to sit down. He asked me how much I'd charge him for my assistance. "Nothing," I said. "It's my pleasure to help you." He thanked me again. I reminded him that I was happy to help.

This encounter reminded me how important it is to be willing to help each other regardless of our status; that we look at each other as equal and not "better than". Just because this young man has a learning disability doesn't mean that I (or anyone) should look at him in any way except as a young man who was smart enough and bold enough to ask for help. He actually articulated his thoughts very well. It was a breeze to write what came from his mind.

If you have an opportunity to be a blessing to someone's life, make yourself available. You never know when you will need help yourself. Remember: You are doing God's work when you assist your fellow man.

Have a splendid Saturday!
