After a long search, an open house, tons of applications and long talks with mothers we have finally chose our very first class of eight amazing girls! I couldn’t be more in love with them already, they’re amazing. Here are some amazing facts about our girls:
6 of the girls chose Math as their favorite subject.
3 of the girls chose their mother as their role model, one chose her grandmother.
2 girls want to be doctors, one wants to be a chef, two want to be fashion designers and one even wants to be an accountant!
Our girls are smart, ambitious, and have families that have high expectations for their girls. They are super excited about their first class and so are we! Updates to come, but keep mid-July open for our official launch!
Yours in Mobama,
Michelle in Training hosted our very first open house last week! It was so exciting for the board to finally get to meet our candidates after thinking about them for so long! About half of the nominees and their families came to join us for dinner and to talk about MiT! The girls also got to try on Stella & Dot jewelry with swagHER chair, Rai, and two of the ladies even won brand new pieces! On our end, it was wonderful to meet the bright, energetic and beautiful girls who will be part of our first class. Talking to them and their equally enthusiastic parents was such an inspiration, and a reminder of why what we’re doing in MiT is so important. It also lit a fire under our you-know-whats. After finally meeting the girls in person, we’re even more motivated to get this show on the road!

Next steps? The girls are filling out their applications as they speak, and in the next couple of weeks we’ll have our first class!
Stay tuned for the announcement, and for our big launch party at the end of the month!
