In the latest episodes of Volta Insider, Rachel Greenberg finds inspiration at the 2019 White House Correspondents’ Garden Brunch. The three new episodes each feature a different message that will inspire you to be more fearless, serve others, and help you to encourage the young women in your life to raise their hand and use their voice.
Greenberg spoke with Jean Case, author of “Be Fearless” about what steps we can each take in our lives to be more fearless both personally and professionally. Find out what being fearless means to MSNBC anchors Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle, activist and makeup artist Bailey Bolden, actor Michael Kelly, and US Army Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management, Lt. Gen. Gwen Bingham. LTG Bingham took home the “Be Fearless” award at this year’s Garden Brunch.
The next podcast is with Alice Paul Tapper, Girl Scout and author of the book “Raise Your Hand.” When Alice noticed girls in her class – including herself – weren’t raising their hands as often as the boys, she talked to her mom about it who suggested Alice bring it up with her Girl Scout Troop. She did, and now there is a new patch which Girl Scouts earn for participating in events and activities.
The third podcast is with legendary comedian and TV host Jay Leno who was at this year’s Garden Brunch to help honor veterans. He shared how we can all do our part to support veterans and military families.
In partnership with Wells Fargo and the Military Warriors Support Foundation, Leno surprised Purple Heart recipient, U.S. Air Force Master Sergeant Angela Morales-Biggs of Manassas, Virginia, with the WHC Garden Brunch Champions of Freedom Award and the keys to a brand new, payment-free Nissan Pathfinder from Jones Junction Auto Group.
