Big news! I’m headed to Barcelona this week to join Shakira for a special event on May 9th that celebrates the multi-dimensional woman who wants to look, feel, and do good.

3D White is a beauty brand that wants to do more than sell great toothpaste — they want to empower women. That’s why they invited me to lead a workshop about She’s the First for 50+ delegates at the event, and they’re making a generous donation to support our mission.

In addition to being a Grammy-award-winning, world-famous musician and one of Forbes‘ Most Powerful Women, Shakira is the global brand ambassador for 3D White and a passionate philanthropist. She founded Pies Descaldos (the Barefoot Foundation) to help poor and impoverished children in Colombia, her native country.

I’m beyond excited to share the smiles of She’s the First Scholars with Shakira and the contest winners who are attending her event with 3D White. You can follow the excitement with the hash tag #3DWhiteShakira. I’ll post updates to my Twitter and Instagram.

Thank you, Shakira and Oral-B/3D White for this opportunity to take She’s the First to Spain! Thank you to Marie Claire for including me in the “20 Women Changing the World” issue last September, which is how Shakira’s team found us. And I should probably thank my dentist too. :)
