Ashleigh Johnson, Olympic Gold medalist and World Champion water polo player will be one of the headline speakers at the fourth annual “Empowering Girls for Life,” a free event to be held virtually September 12th.

Ashleigh Johnson was the first ever African American woman to compete for the United States in water polo, being crowned tournament MVP in route to winning the gold medal in 2016. A psychology major graduate of Princeton University, she finished as her career as Princeton’s all-time leader in saves (1,362) and compiled 100 career victories.

“The purpose of the event is to reach out to young women and girls and to get the message out on motivating and empowering young girls to be the best that they can be,” said Empowering Girls for Life creator Bill Conroy. Conroy started the Beverly Bandits, a nationally recognized elite fast pitch softball team that has won numerous national championships and has sent more than 400 young women to Division 1 college scholarships over the last 20 years.
