Christian film producer, and preacher DeVon Franklin participated in the panel discussion at “LadyLike Day” at UCLA over the weekend. DeVon was joined by Magic and wife Cookie Johnson, who opened the event with inspiring words for the young ladies. Also on the panel were actors, Anthony Anderson, Dondre Whitfield, Chris Spencer, and NFL Veteran Marcellus Wiley.
Each year, Ladylike Day at UCLA culminates with an open platform celebrity male panel where the young ladies attending are given the opportunity to ask the men on the panel any questions they wish without any restrictions or limitations, from advice about romance and relationships to how to handle bullying.
Founded by Leah Pump, the LadyLike Foundation is a faith-based nonprofit organization whose purpose is to educate, empower and inspire young women living in underprivileged communities. Through cutting edge resource programs, workshops, mentorships and life lessons, young ladies are challenged to reach their highest potential and become the successful, well-rounded “Lady” they were created to be. Each year, the organization hosts two main events: LADYLIKE DAY AT UCLA and the Women of Excellence Awards Luncheon, which is the primary fundraiser for LadyLike Foundation.
