Ten specially chosen Triton girls headed to the Boston Convention Center with 10,000 other women for a day of speeches, activities, and inspiring stories on December 6th.

“You’ve gotta have motivation for what you fight for,” senior Madi Butler learned as one of the 10 girls to go.

Butler’s favorite speaker of the day was Amanda Southworth who, with a tough upbringing, was able to code her own app for issues such as anxiety at just 16 years old. After creating her app, she quit high school and launched her own nonprofit software developing company and is a mental health activist.  

According to their website, the MA Women’s Conference goal is to market yourself, help a community, stay positive, and manage health. It features speakers and innovators that often share their personal success stories to motivate and inspire students. Along with speaker Amanda Southworth the author of the famous book, Eat Pray Love made an appearance. Elizabeth Gilbert’s book focuses on life after divorce as she travels the world.

“She was a comedian so she would be saying a really funny story, but then the last sentence would be delivered in a really serious tone with a good message,” says senior Olivia Valley about Maysoon Zayid who spoke about her struggle as a disabled, Muslim women in the United States.

“Not only did we listen to the speakers, there were also informational booths and stuff around there. We took the bus with Hamilton Wenham and I think that went really well. We were all talking to each other before the event.”

After picking up Hamilton-Wenham girls, the Triton bus made its way into Boston on December 6 where they came together with 10,000 other woman of all ages. Everyone was greeted with gifts such as an all-in-one sewing kit, hairbrush, and mirror.

One of the biggest takeaways for senior Amy Clark was, “Hearing women speak about their struggle and how they are currently thriving in life help me realize that no matter the struggle thrown at me, I’ll get through it.”

“Hearing women speak about their struggle and how they are currently thriving in life help me realize that no matter the struggle thrown at me, I’ll get through it.””
