D Symone was born and raised in Texas. At the age of 15 yrs old, she became a teenage mother. She always knew that there was a reason she became a mother at a very young age. "Throughout my years of being a mother, God always placed other young women in my life and I would always encourage them." Often times in life, it is our own personal trials and tribulations that allow us to be a blessing to others. She knew from experience how hard the struggle of being a young teenage woman was. Forced to suddenly assume so many new responsibilities, the peer pressure, the abuse, the constant judgement being passed.
This year, 2014, Dionna received inspiration to start her own organization called Young Women of Empowerment. With so much negativity in the world today and so many WRONG avenues for our young women to take, encouragement and positive aspirations need to continuously be poured into their lives. This organization was designed to empower young women, so that they will know that they can weather and make it through any storm. They can be better and do better.

SPECIAL EDITION: Purpose for Women focuses on United Nations in Columbus
Guests: Melissa Lenz & Chasity
Our mission statement:
The United Nations Association of Columbus is committed to educating, inspiring, and mobilizing Ohioans to support the vital work of the United Nations, for we believe that the UN offers the best means to achieving peace and security for all humans. We practice this mission through several programs. We strive to make a difference through Model UN programs, where students can actively engage in the international system, learn and experience the UN system, and develop valuable leadership skills. We aim to think globally and act locally by organizing events that highlight the relevance of the UN system in Ohio as well as the key role that Ohio plays in that system as well. We advocate for strong U.S. leadership in the UN so that the international organization can operate to its fullest potential. We operate under the mantra “More Than Just Me,” for we understand that our purpose is about more than just the success of our singular organization but about the network of supporters who will make a positive impact on this world. We also understand that it will take more than just us to accomplish the lofty goals of the UN, so we collaborate with several Columbus organizations to make our vision a reality.

With the death of Joan Rivers this week, it seems like everyone is talking about her role in shaping the world’s view of women in comedy. So what about women in comedy? Is there such a thing as “women’s humor?” Is it only funny when women mock their bodies and relationships? Are today’s female comedians different from other generations of female comics?
Prepare to discuss humor, laughs, what’s funny and how women are perceived in comedy with two guests Saturday. Sheila Moeschen is a writer and Senior Editor for I AM THAT GIRL, an organization that empowers girls and young women to healthy self-esteem and self-worth. She holds a Ph.D in Gender and Theatre Studies from Northwestern University. Sheila has been involved behind the scenes with the Women In Comedy Festival since its beginning in 2008. She is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post and her work has appeared elsewhere in print and online. She lives in Boston. Elyse Schuerman is one of the producers of the Women in Comedy Festival, and between them, we should have a rousing conversation about what makes people laugh and how women fit into the comedy scene.
Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more women in comedy.

C-Blaque is going to be an industry icon! Born Stephon Cook originally from Allentown, PA he moved to Greenville, SC at a young age with his grandmother to go to school and away from the gang life. But by his mid-teens he was in and out of trouble through gangbangin and later went to prison. When he turned 21 he was released and decided to turn to music. Now at age 23, his music has been making a statement throughout the Carolinas for over a year now with his "way of words". C-Blaque's music can put you in the mind state of a new age Ruff Ryders. And after his surprise collaboration with legend rapper DMX in 2013, his "lyrical gangsta feel" reached the 5 boroughs of New York.
His voice, creativity, and delivery will catch you almost immediately. Not to mention his energy is undeniable! He's performed at countless showcases throughout South Carolina all the way down to Charleston! He's also had bookings in Charlotte, NC, Long Island, NY, and Springfield, MA. He is a local independent artist and is NOT SIGNED. All of his exposure, promotion, studio time, and road assignments shows his talents and management abilities. His determination and music are both incredible. STAY TUNED....
Zone P is a producer/rapper/writer all in one. Burgeoning from the DMV area, his music captures listeners with quality and reality. Encouraging others to pursue any dreams and goals they have in life. Zone was quickly catapulted to provide that same motivation through self produced beats and life experiences.
Born Michael Jenkins, music has always been apart of him. Coming from a musically inclined family, only validated the passion and contentment of becoming a rising star. He started rapping at an early age about his surroundings. It was therapy for him to express what /how he was feeling about anything. That led to Zone creating music from scratch with his own distinct sound. Consisting of eerie synths, triumphant horns and somewhat a r&b feel, his music would put the listener in a "zone". He soon chose to name himself Zone. Adding P at the end for "production", which was quickly abbreviated to a single letter. He went on to self producing 3 mixtapes that were accepted locally. With no management, a buzz was created, but wasn't big enough to capture ears and reach the right hands. Not one to be discouraged, he kept pursuing a music career in hopes of finding proper management.
Zone is in a lane of his own. Claiming the DMV as home and inspiration for "zoned out" tracks and thought provoking lyrics. His message through music is motivation for everyday living as well as life in general. From the hood to the suburbs, young to old, male to female, all genres of people relate to it. Zone is hitting the streets with quality music and hot production that only adds fuel to the fire! World get ready.....
****Listen out for Zone on the Young Women of Empowerment Mixtape entiled "Faith 2 Believe," set to be released 09/01/2014.****
