Eight powerful female speakers discuss their life experiences with young female minds aged 13-21, creating discussion, idea exchanges, and new perspectives on their lives. Think ‘Ted Talks’ for the female teen.

Ryan O’Day Presents, a production company run by the same name in the St. Louis area, has brought the Second City Troupe to the Sheldon Hall, produced a fundraiser for the Blake Snyder Family at the Wildey Theater, and most recently was inspired by an after-dinner conversation his daughter Josephine, 14, had with the owner of 1818 Chophouse, Meg Pashea. Josephine and Meg hit it off and talked easily back and forth about a variety of topics. As a listening participant in the discussion, Ryan conceived the concept to expand the ‘one on one’ conversation to a much larger, female only audience of 13-21-year-olds.

“School is a great institution, but real-life experiences and exchanges, that is where you learn a myriad more of how the world works. Watching my daughter react to ideas, opinions, and perspectives Meg discussed, I realized that, while I may have had the same notions, my daughter treated her as an authority on the subjects, and really internalized them. A few days later, my daughter was still cycling through some of the subject matter – that was powerful. As a result, we launched this concept and plan to do it annually in the St. Louis area.”
