Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib visits HFA's Bold Beautiful Girls Club Bold Beautiful Girls Club had a wonderful up close and personal session with Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib . She was very down to earth and transparent as she discussed her experience as congresswoman, her upbringing growing up in Southwest Detroit and the path she took to achieve her success. No question was off limits and the students came with some pretty thought provoking questions. You could tell she enjoyed talking to the girls and we would love to have her again as so many would benefit from hearing her. It was truly an honor to soak up her knowledge and hopefully this opened some new career interest for some of the girls. Thank you to the HFA staff who came and all who helped make today happen and most importantly, thank you to Rashida for visiting HFA!
