Marga Fripp Making Headlines!

9 Jul

Marga Fripp with Advisory Board member Mimi Hassanein

EWI was honored this week to be featured in an article in two Pulitzer Prize-winning news organizations’ sites: The Christian Science Monitor and The Huffington Post.  Our inspiring leader and founder of Empowered Women International, Marga Fripp was interviewed and spoke about her time in Romania and how her life’s journey has led her to form EWI and help other immigrant women like herself.

Marga initially spoke with Richard Polt of Communicate Good, LLC, a PR Company devoted to promoting the good work of nonprofits and individuals making a difference. He interviewed her and wrote the piece as part of Communicate Good’s  ‘Talking Good’ series which highlights individuals who “champion causes and lead by example”.  Once published the story was picked up by the Christian Science Monitor and the Huffington Post. Empowered Women International hope these news features will help EWI empower more immigrant, refugee, and low-income women and continue training talented and passionate entrepreneurs. We would like to extend a big thanks to the great work by Rich Polt and all those at Communicate Good who aim to give a voice to noble causes.  The news feature can be found on all three sites below.
