    I had an amazing time. I reunited with old friends and met new friends, too. The mental health panel was timely and so very important. The vendors had great, quality products. Loved the gift bag. Thank you Rachel for being such a champion for entrepreneurship and for your fellow Naturalistas. Have a great week everyone!

    Truly enjoyed every aspect of the event! The panelists were very candid (no fluff) in their discussions! The fashion was a reinforcement of the importance of overcoming societal perceptions , that you don't have to be a "certain size" to model! Kudos to all! One more thing, it was great to see that many women of color rocking their natural hair!
