Jamaanah Salaam and Kamirah Hamlett
Kamirah Hamlett and Jamaanah Salaam are looking to empower girls in their hometown. The two Atlantic City natives are now based in northern New Jersey, where they founded YOUnite, with the goal of creating a place where women cane come together to inspire one another and network. They are bringing that “girl power” to Atlantic City next Saturday, with an event for girls ages 12 to 16. “Paint Your Passion” will help girls focus on their futures through art. “They will be taught to celebrate their true selves, discover their passion and will discover their inner ‘girl power,’” according to an announcement about the event. “By the end of this event, the girls will be walking away with a basket full of school supplies and set goals to accomplish.” “Pant Your Passion” will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. at the All Wars Memorial Building in Atlantic City. To sign up for the free event, RSVP to Amber Hamlett at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 609-816- 3848.
