"I had an amazing time at the Expo! I came to the Expo alone, so I was a little worried that I would feel uncomfortable. But that wasn't the case at all! I felt nothing but positive energy in all of the women I met, and even the passers by. We need more events like this for women!! I would love to have a booth for one of these events in the future! It was simply amazing!"
