Fresno expo aims to empower teenage girls toward education, career

A free expo on Sunday in downtown Fresno aims to empower teenage girls to make their education and career dreams a reality.

The Girls World Expo will run from noon to 4 p.m. at The Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, near the Fresno Convention Center. The expo includes an art show, a fashion show, and a college and career area featuring successful local women from companies, colleges and trade schools who will provide information on career paths, degree programs and internships.

“Girls World Expo provides a safe and upbeat atmosphere in which girls can interact and enjoy their shared interests, while discovering new ones,” said David Abenojar of I Heart Media, a key sponsor.
