Our Co-Founder, Alexa Joan Wajed will be the Keynote Speaker at the Young Queens Empowerment Conference taking place Saturday, April 22, 2023.
You do not want to miss this event. The team over at Best-Self led by Cambria Daniels, along with Buffalo Public schools have created a full day around, self-care, self improvement, Physical and Mental Health all under the umbrella of EMPOWERMENT!
All are welcome to enjoy a day of free workshops designed to encourage, inspire, and empower the self-esteem, emotional and mental wellbeing of young women. Join us and support the movement to build power with and for young ladies in their transition into successful women.
August 2020, Eat Off Art and Step OutBuffalo collaborated creatively to create a message specific design that highlighted Buffalo at its best, with proceeds directly supporting The International Institute of Buffalo. We first settled on a slogan, which later inspired a design and graphic which read as “Bflo Wins.” The slogan spoke broadly to the hopes and wishes of a majority of the Queen’s city’s residents, in most regards, which has even been passed on generationally. When Buffalo truly comes together, across the region on one accord, whether it be through charity, sports or helping one another through crisis, that’s when Buffalo wins. Despite the many challenges and blights that mar the city, quite embarrassingly handled by “leaders” in most recently incidents on the national stage – it is the most passionate and compassionate of Buffalonians who do the meaningful, humanitarian work that are the real Champions of the City. With tragedy striking more often that desired in Buffalo as of late, this design is a call for the best of us to join as a united front in order to dream and manifest an improved, equitable and burgeoning town, not just for the few and privileged, but for all.
Lastly, for all of the devoted sports fans, whether hockey, football of lacrosse, “Bflo Wins” is all that everyone wants to hear. Get yours today! A Super Bowl win this year is the closest it’s been in decades and generations, yet despite the outcome, the design, chant and slogan represents the gritty attitude and optimism that is rabidly displayed by Buffalonians for a lifetime.
Peace, Edreys and Alexa for Eat Off Art.
