Girls in San Antonio had the opportunity to learn what it takes to be a firefighter at the fourth annual Girls Empowerment Summit.
The two-day event focused on empowering young girls and encouraging them to consider non-traditional career roles for women.
Members of the San Antonio Fire Department showcased their skills and taught the girls about what it takes to join the team.
The summit also covered topics such as positive body image, self-care, and social media awareness.
One attendee shared that she wants to pursue a career in forensic science but also wanted to gain experience in firefighting to see if it’s something she may want to pursue in the future.
The Girls Empowerment Summit serves as a sign of hope for women in San Antonio.
