Meet Linda & Susana Manziaris, Panelists at #ThePowerOfConnections2017

GirlsHelpingGirls was founded in 2013, by Susanna Manziaris, after she  watched  the documentary ‘It’s a Girl’, which highlights the global practice of gendercide:  the systematic killing of baby girls. According to the United Nations there are over 100 million girls currently “missing” from the world today, as a result of Gendercide. After countless hours researching, Susanna realized that girls were being killed simply because they were not seen as valuable members of their community. The question switched from how to do end Gendercide, to how do we raise the status of women, so they will be seen as active contributing members of society? What started as small awareness campaigns in Toronto, quickly transformed into an organization dedicated to empowering women around the world. GirlsHelpingGirls created the Three Prong Approach to Education which offers full tuition scholarships for girls to attend school, trains teachers so they can best support their students, and finally builds schools so students have a safe and sanitary learning environment. Through application of the Three Prong Approach, GirlsHelpingGirls has been able to support over 240 girls attend school, train five teachers in Afghanistan, and build two schools in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Susanna is currently a sophomore at Northeastern University in Boston, MA, where she studies Finance, Political Science and Journalism. Founded by Linda Manziaris, Body Bijou is an online jewelry store that donates 50% of all net profits to GirlsHelpingGirls. Body Bijou and GirlsHelpingGirls is a social enterprise that is dedicated to sending girls to school. The work of Body Bijou and GirlsHelpingGirls has resulted in 240 girls attending school, teachers attending training, and two schools being built.

Meet Shenna Vaughn, Creative Leader at #ThePowerOfConnections2017

Shenna Vaughn is the artist behind what she describes as ‘Soulful Funk on Canvas’. Vaughn’s intuitive abstract paintings tell subconscious narratives of the deep stories of the soul. Her use of warm colors sets the stage for the expression of the personal thoughts that we all confront. Her work invites the audience to enter a personal conversation of reflection and confession. While these subjects are introduced through her particular use of pigments and textures, the symbolism used uninhibitedly exposes vulnerability.

We had the pleasure of meeting and connecting with Queens based artist Shenna Vaughn at the I am Woman Conference, hosted by Sylvia High in 2016. We were so honored and excited when she participated at The Power of Connections, 2016. This year, she’s back!

Vaughn says,”As I became older, I began to do other things. Circumstances occurred, responsibilities kicked in, and I found myself allowing the masses to tell me what I should be doing along with the fear of being judged. During this time I was miserable, angry and couldn’t even figure out why. I was a closet painter and no one knew I even had this gift. Then one day one of my dearest friends, Leanna, cared enough and introduced me to a transformational workshop. There I was able to find my path again. From that day forward I picked up my brush and never looked back. I started to honor my wants and needs. I decided to be the woman that I didn’t see growing up – painting not only my story but many others with the hope of inspiring others not to give up on their dream.”

Meet Judy Banks, Meditation Guide and Workshop Leader at #ThePowerOfConnections2017

Judy Banks

Stress-Management and Mindful Lifestyle Coach

Chopra Center Certified Instructor

At Balance Your Life, Judy offers a unique approach to understanding how our diet and lifestyle affects our energy, focus, weight, and ultimately our lifespan.  With a focus on the mind-body connection and stress-management, she offers a logical and sustainable approach to creating a more balanced, healthy and meaningful life.  She works with each client as an individual and offers a personalized educational program that has very powerful and sustainable results. Judy also shares workshops and seminars in both private and corporate settings.

In her own words:

“I Lived a Fast Paced, Unhealthy Lifestyle. For 13 years, I lived a fast paced, unhealthy lifestyle as a Management Consultant on Wall Street. I had started a family with my husband and we wanted healthy, strong, nourished children. I knew I needed to balance my life and I quickly realized that I didn’t know where to start making changes. So, my research into health and wellness began.

When My First Child Jeremy was 3 Years Old

When my first child Jeremy was 3 years old, I noticed that he would seem “wired”even though he had not consumed any sugar. I began to pay close attention to what he was eating and learned that every time he ate any food containing food coloring FD & C Yellow #5, he would start to bounce off the walls. I consulted this with my doctor and was told that it was ridiculous to assume that food coloring could cause hyperactivity. However, I went home, threw out all the boxes of Macaroni and Cheese, and eliminated all food coloring from our diet.

A mother always knows: Jeremy’s hyperactivity stopped.

Fact: A study financed by Britain’s Food Safety Agency (FSA) and published by the British Medical Journal, The Lancet, has conclusively and scientifically confirmed a long-suspected link between food additives and coloring and increased hyperactivity in a broad range of children.  Link to FSA for more information

I realized it was not enough to simply make sure I was feeding our children a balanced diet: it wasn’t enough to make sure I was putting fruits and vegetables on their plates.  I realized it wasn’t just about what we were eating: I had to start paying attention to the details.

My Approach to Learning

My approach to learning was one based on curiosity. I studied at various schools and practiced many different approaches to health and wellness, I even learned many things about STD’s, I like advising people that syphilis symptoms can be hidden but that does not mean is not there. It was during this time that I realized that the training in Human Anatomy, Physiology, Exercise Science and mainstream Nutrition would not offer me all the information I needed to put the pieces together.

I was introduced to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and it was through IIN, Purchase College, SUNY, and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners that I obtained my certification as a Holistic Health Coach. After studying over 100 dietary theories, I learned to combine the knowledge of both Eastern and Western philosophies. At IIN, I had the privilege of being taught by world-renowned physicians that are at the forefront of integrative medicine, nutrition, and healing.

Through Cornell University and the T. Colin Campbell Foundation, I obtained a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition. This course presents a revolutionary view that Dr. Colin Campbell (The China Study), has developed during 40 years experience in experimental research. This program focused on the ability of properly executed nutrition and its ability to positively affect your health and prevent illness. It also focuses on the theory that many of the diseases that affect Americans today can be prevented and even reversed through proper dietary and lifestyle modifications.

While Studying at the Chopra Center

While studying at the Chopra Center, I realized that the missing “piece” in our lives is very often the missing “peace” in our lives. Embracing that stillness and awareness in our day-to-day is of utmost importance in setting a powerful foundation for our health and well-being.

Life in the 21st century can leave us feeling stressed-out, exhausted, and overwhelmed. We often lack the energy, the clarity, or the focus to initiate change in our lives. Working with me at Balance Your Life, you will learn powerful techniques that will enable you to live a stress-free, healthy, focused, and empowered life.
