Ambee Stephens is yet another reminder of how lucky we are to be a part of this See Her Soar project, because we are getting to know the next generation of world changers every day. Ambee’s EmpowHERment Community Center’s mission of helping women rise = our mission to help women ascend. She is definitely our kind of people! Her organization hosts free workshops, events and more that are specifically designed to help women do so many things, it kind of makes my heart explode with pride at what she has created. Let’s get to know her better.
1. Tell us in a few sentences what you do. And why you do it.

My platform and everything I do is based on supporting women. We are a grassroots nonprofit in Tampa Bay but get overseen by larger nonprofits. We are doing the work and impacting lives but need your help to spread the word…consider sponsoring our HER RUN, donating to our center, and doing your part to help women rise.

Ambee needs our help with her upcoming HER Run, which is scheduled for June 5th, especially getting runners, vendors, and sponsors. She’s asked us to share this information about the run with you all, so if Ambee’s organization speaks to you and you’d like to help support the EmpowHERment mission, please reach out to her! I also wanted to share this information about her awesome free workshops, so please share with them women in your life who might benefit from what they are offering! Thank you Ambee for all that you do for our community. You are truly inspiring and we are so happy to feature what you do!
