Jennifer Berson | Founder & President, Jeneration PR & Jeneration Academy
I want to make an impact on the lives of women all over the world through my programs that empower them to take their careers into their own hands. I have created a powerful platform, Jeneration Academy, that teaches them how to master PR, a very sought-after and in-demand skill, and then provides a proven framework for how to run a profitable agency, supporting clients they love and that they are truly passionate about. The model that I provide allows women to “have it all” by growing a successful business on their terms and around their schedule. Read more>>
Kenzie Fitzpatrick | Firearms Instructor, Published Writer, and Owner of Reticle Up Marketing
My number one goal with my business is to show the world that women can be successful in the firearms industry by being professional, knowing their craft better than anyone else, and without having to compromise their morals or values. I want young women who are more outdoorsy and less feminine to feel comfortable in their own skin, be their true authentic selves, and chase their passion no matter what it is. I want more women to break gender norms. I am living my dream every single minute of every single day. Read more>>
Kristen Lee | Visual Development Artist & Illustrator
Personally, I think there’s a kind of pressure that comes with creating or maintaining a legacy. I don’t particularly desire or feel the need to be remembered.

Sojey Fernández | CEO | Founder of D&S Agency & ConectaWNY | Empowerment Speaker | Co-author.
My legacy and what I want people to remember me is for my resilience, for being a dreamer that never gave up in the face of obstacles. To show that no matter where you come from, no matter what happened in your past ,your traumas, your childhood, your current situation, your fears, the false perception that you have about yourself, you can heal and overcome anything if you really believe in yourself and most importantly if you believe in God.
