It has become somewhat of a tradition to attend the For Sisters Only event at the Walter E. Convention Center with my sister Rachel, and this year was no exception. Unlike in years past, I was there on a mission: to promote the brand, network, and build lasting friendships with people in and around the Washington DC Metropolitan Area. I had the wonderful opportunity to catch up and hangout with WPGC's own "Mr. 24/7" DJ Tony Redz, and thoroughly enjoyed performances from Lloyd, Mario, Jidenna, Tank, and The Backyard Band throughout the afternoon. What made this FSO special was that this time DJs, Social Media and Marketing professionals alike, approached me, and inquired about Simply Ari (I think it was largely because of the S.A.M. jacket I was proudly rocking, LOL). That experience in and of itself was both humbling and exciting. The highlight however, came later on, when my sister and I had the unexpected pleasure of meeting a mutual Instagram friend, Trevor Reckling along with his business partner Michael at one of the many booths present at the event. God's favor was evident throughout the afternoon.
This year's FSO was definitely one for the books. Thanks WPGC! God-willing , we'll see you next year!
When Ari isn't out covering events, she's working on bettering herself as a journalist, attending writer-related events, or enjoying spontaneous excursions in and around the Washington DC Metropolitan area.
