The Power of One program allowed students from The Bronx’s Women’s Academy of Excellence, Girls Inc.’s flagship school Urban Assembly Institute of Math & Science for Young Women in addition to the Young Women’s Leadership School to learn from the music industry’s top women power players who shared their experiences and insight about pursuing a dream.

The panel was moderated by Danyel Smith, Editor-in-Chief of Billboard magazine, and featured Singer/ songwriter/producer duo Jane’t Sewell-Ulepic and Angela Hunte, who co-wrote Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ hit Empire State of Mind, Grammy nominated songwriter Denise Rich, as well as Senior Vice President of Brand Partnerships and Commercial Licensing at the Atlantic Records Group, Camille Hackney.
