Veronika Scott, CEO of The Empowerment Plan, to present at US

Veronika Scott will be presenting to our US students on February 26th during our disco block.  She is the CEO of The Empowerment Plan which is a Detroit-based nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the homeless community.  They hire homeless women from local shelters to become full time seamstresses.  These women manufacture a coat that transforms into a sleeping bag, which is then given out to homeless individuals living on the streets at no cost to them.  It was started by Veronika who began this project when she was a student at The College for Creative Studies.  She designed coats which could be transformed into sleeping bags as one of her design/service projects while she was an art student. Veronika has presented on TED and we are excited to hear her speak in February.  Her website is:  www.empowermentplan.org
