Award winning Media Personality Eli Kharis has launched ‘Shine On Queen’ initiative, a lifestyle Hub to celebrate women, empower each other to evolve and collectively advocate for positive change in the society.
A number of projects including mini workshops, interviews that will focus on equipping individuals with the right tools to become successful Entrepreneurs and building brands with the help of resource personnel have been planned as part of activities of the initiative.
“Throughout my journey I have come to understand how much genuine support from the people around you contribute to our goals (be it family, friends, Colleagues or even strangers.) Unfortunately, not many have had a share of that.I have reflected on what more I can personally or a group of women do to support one another, as well as raising awareness on issues concerning us in the society,” remarked Kharis on the reason behind founding the initiative.
“I stan women who strive for excellence no matter the obstacles. As an individual working towards her goals, I often think about how I can encourage my fellow woman to do same so we can all win! As the saying goes “A true Queen lifts other women all the way up.”
The ‘SOQ’ team is confident the planned projects will helpin achieving the mission of ‘Shine On Queen’ to applaud, create a supporting space to foster a culture of unity, and improve open exchange of knowledge and entrepreneurial skills amongst women/girls.
Engagements of the initiative will be done virtually via its social media platforms due to the impact of COVID-19.
