 After an early diagnosis with high blood pressure and diabetes, 59-year-old Jacqueline Glass from Harlem, New York City began her journey toward transformative health. Through diet and exercise, she was able to change her trajectory and reverse her diabetes, eliminate all prescription medication, and ultimately save her life.

This led Jacqueline, an ordained minister, to tell her story and inspire others to embark on a healthier way of life. Jacqueline began holding health and wellness conferences and symposiums that were attended by countless women looking for direction and a path forward to improve their mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

As the founder of At the Well Conferences, Inc., for over 13 years, Jacqueline has created special conferences and leadership academies for women and girls of color that have changed their lives. For over eleven years, one of her early prolific endeavors was the prominent At the Well Young Women’s Leadership Academy, a powerful summer enrichment program for exceptional black teen girls at the prestigious Princeton University.

The academy created a special place for girls and women that gave them tools to help improve their lives. To create a safe space during the pandemic, the Leadership Academy went virtual to ensure access for more young women and girls when they needed it most. After 34 years of service with New York State Supreme Court, Jacqueline continued her passion for health and wellness, ensuring that women had the critical support needed to live full lives.

Have You Heard About The Beauty Pageant Raising Money To Help The People Of Africa?
The "African Most Beautiful USA Pageant" Showcases Beautiful And Talented Women While Helping To Uplift Africa

The "African Most Beautiful USA," pageant is an event which showcases the beauty, talent, and brilliance of young women of African descent and direct lineage between the ages of 18-28.  The purpose of the pageant is also to raise money for important causes in Africa.  It is organized by the Abofrem Area Foundation, Inc. (AAF). 

Abofrem Area Foundation, Inc. (AAF) is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization based in the United States. The AAF is the brainchild of Nana Obaahemaa Nkrumah Akosua Adasa III, a Ghanian-American, who started the organization with a desire to provide the village of Abofrem, her original hometown located in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, as well as the surrounding villages in Ghana and other African countries access to food, employment, education, sanitation, and medical needs.

In the year 2019, the foundation proudly constructed a new school building which encompasses Grades 1-5 to benefit the children in the village so that none would be left behind in gaining vital education.  A medical hospital was constructed within the village in 2021 to be dedicated January 5, 2022.
