Petals-N-Belles, a NY-based social development program for at-risk teen girls, collaborated with The New York Times to host a panel discussion in celebration of International Day of the Girl.

The panel highlighted Alexis Stoudemire and other inspiring women, each of whom shared her journey toward personal success. Speaking candidly about her story, Alexis connected with the girls by discussing her experience as a high school athlete, philanthropist, wife and mother of four.

Alexis can’t wait to see what the girls will achieve by setting goals for their future and following their dreams.
