An Evening with Shawn Johnson

Believe in Your Dreams

Join us for An Evening with Shawn Johnson, Olympic Gold Medalist and winner of the 2009 season of Dancing with the Stars, presented in partnership by Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois and Women’s Connection.

Shawn, and her mother, Teri Johnson, will speak on the topic “Believe in Your Dreams,” featuring:

  • The imperative to raise girls and young women with high self-esteem
  • Developing the courage necessary to be true to yourself and your dreams
  • The challenges and blessings of the mother-daughter relationship

Shawn will offer insight on maintaining balance and character while gaining international Olympic fame at the age of 16, and stories about her two seasons on Dancing with the Stars

This event will include an exhibition featuring regional dance and tumbling organizations, along with presentation of the 2013 Young Women of Achievement Honorees. Shawn Johnson will not perform.

The community is invited. Bring any woman and young woman you want to inspire for An Evening with Shawn Johnson.
