Sonia Jackson Myles, Founder of The Sister Accord, Receives Prestigious Honor from The State of Ohio
Community Leader and Author Earns Accolades For "High Tea" Self-Esteem Seminars for Teens & Sister Accord Day is proclaimed in the City of Cincinnati
CINCINNATI, Ohio - September 9, 2013 - Sonia Jackson Myles, founder of The Sister Accord, recently received a proclamation from the Senate of the General Assembly of Ohio. State Senator Eric H. Kearney presented the accolade during The Sister Accord High Tea event in Cincinnati on August 31.
"This is the highest honor the Senate of the General Assembly of Ohio gives with the exception of honors given to military persons who have passed away,” said Senator Kearney.
50 teenaged girls participated in The Sister Accord Tea Party, which was hosted and sponsored by Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza Hotel in an effort to support positive community engagement. Cincinnati Councilmember Yvette Simpson marked the occasion by declaring Sister Accord Day in the city.
"Sonia has been a tireless advocate for women's rights with a special focus on building confidence and communication skills in young women," said Michel A. Sheer, CHA, Managing Director, Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. "We, at the hotel, are pleased to support Sonia in her work, and believe that this work can help lead to a better future for us all."
"The theme of the event was A Time To Feel Special. Those who attended will have an opportunity to participate in a follow-up session this Fall to further assist them in their development as successful global leaders." said Jackson Myles.
“There were many things that these young ladies could have been doing on a Saturday afternoon, but instead they chose to make an investment in themselves,” said Jackson Myles with great admiration. “They are such amazing young people who have set very stretching goals. Many of the attendees said that they want to be medical professionals-- doctors, psychologists, veterinarians, and therapists. It was such an inspiring group. With these young ladies as our future leaders, I'm confident that all will be well."
This High Tea was our first of ten nationwide. Jackson Myles hopes the other sessions will have the same degree of success.
"This type of exposure can only strengthen the skills of each teen girl. I am confident that this experience will help them make great choices for their journey. Every aspect of the day was planned in detail and each attendee received numerous special gifts."
"We want these young ladies to know that there are people, outside of their families, who care deeply about them and their success,” said Jackson Myles. “Our Sister Accord mentors were fantastic and took special care in working with the young ladies on the exercises we conducted." Award winning music artist from EnVogue and Sister Accord Foundation Trustee, Terry Ellis, sent a beautiful video greeting to the girls and created a Sister Accord journal for one lucky winner. The day closed with a beautiful gift giving ceremony when mentors presented each girl with a special pearl bracelet.
"Pearls are created as a result of an irritant in an oyster,” said Jackson Myles. “You too, will have irritants in your life. We all have irritants, but you must stay steadfast in knowing that perseverance will be the key to walking in your destiny. Don’t be discouraged. Learn the lessons and move forward."
Sonia Jackson Myles, President & CEO of The Sister Accord, LLC, is a highly sought after coach, consultant, author, motivational speaker and workshop facilitator who specializes in purpose-centered personal and professional coaching. Her mantra is "There is always a seat at the table for excellence; focus on being excellent."
