It is important to offer many sides of an issue and discuss them respectfully for change to occur. At Maryland Peace Day, we are focusing on our world as a whole, as well as us as individuals in a pursuit of peace and happiness.”

 The celebration included networking with local business owners and leaders, food and a cash bar. There will be a panel discussion titled, “From World Peace to Inner Peace.” Among the panelists were Rachael Villafane, a Christian missionary; and Beth Terrence, a Shaman holistic healer, author and peer support specialist for Maryland Recovery Organization Connecting Communities and Markesa Oliver an Educator. 

The event concluded with an award ceremony recognizing one community member for their service. Lisa Stearns of Ms Biz Today was the honoree.

Event Description

A thoughtful event celebrating and storytelling about the many TRANSITIONS we, as women, encounter through life, career and family, as we honor Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. 

Brought to you by Asian Business Women of America and TRUE Conversations.

A panel of leaders in the Maryland/Virginia community, of Asian heritage, shared their experiences, wisdom and advise about navigating and persisting through life's transitions on one's journey of success. 

"Transitions are often pivotal moments in our lives. We remember them vividly, emotionally, and they can influence the rest of our lives.

This is one of my favorite topics to evoke from people ... because I think Transitions brings out the most raw and broken form of people, but also the most hopeful.

Most of the time when we are going through transitions however, we believe, this is the WORST. Why me? Why this? Eventually we learn more productive question can be, what is this trying to teach me? Why am I having this experience, who am I supposed to BECOME because of this?" -Meghan Enriquez founder of True Conversations LLC
