Teens are honored guests at gala event in Norfolk

Lia Russell Nov 18, 2013

Virginian Pilot – Celebrity Apprentice Omarosa Manigault shared the inspirational story of her youth with attendees of the sixth annual Teens With a Purpose fundraising Gala & Masquerade Ball held Nov. 1.

Keynote speaker Manigault, a professor at Howard University, described growing up as an “at-risk” teen in a low-income community in Youngstown, Ohio.

It was her mother’s encouragement and the support of a youth group similar to Teens With a Purpose that helped her realize her potential and achieve her dreams, she said.
