The CLASS Network’s “Journey to the Crown Experience (JTTC)” will be an inaugural event to allow women from around the globe who’ve experienced self-hatred, helplessness, and insecurity to stand in solidarity as they explore their past, present, and future ambitions.
The JTTC Experience will create a welcoming social environment through lounge-style panel discussions, seminars, and workshops. It will also introduce participants to a 90-day curriculum designed to guide each woman in discovering her purpose.
There will be meet and greets with community and celebrity influencers, such as TV Star Ariane Davis, America’s Next Top Model Runner-Up Mamé Adjei, Essence & Instyle Magazine’s Keisha Lamothe, international media personality Madison Jaye, and many more.
CLASS Network founder Ellen Osei is an occupational therapist and doctoral candidate at Columbia University, humanitarian, and former pageant titleholder and coordinator. As a therapist, her life mission is to support individuals in obtaining an optimal quality of life in all their daily activities.
Osei’s inspiration for this event stems from experiencing how many women were able to use the pageant platform to overcome their obstacles and serve as leaders and develop a new business idea or career path.
“What makes everyone’s beauty unique is the passion that radiates from within…passion that stems from proclaiming victory over that thing that was once was an obstacle and walking in your purpose. That is a true crown of beauty,” says Osei.
“It is my belief that this journey to glory is one of the most important milestones in every woman’s life. Our mission is to help every woman discover and embark on that journey, be equipped to persevere and conquer obstacles along that journey, obtain her crown, and reign as her journey continues.”
