When we reminisce about the launch of PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT fest ATLANTA, the Wall of Wisdom is definitely one of the most memorable moments that come to mind. Though many of us were excited to try new workouts, meet cool creatives and dance like we were on stage with Beyoncé and Cardi B, this simple activity gave women the chance to put pen to paper and sign, seal, deliver the gems of knowledge that have helped them survive this thang called life.

Showing solidarity by sharing a positive message with someone new was a great way to stay connected after the event concluded. MLK's words and message are still very relevant in 2018, and in a time when our country is more divided than ever, showing support for the causes that are important to you can be one easy way to get involved. Once you've marked your calendar for PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT fest ATLANTA 2018, here are 100 of our favorite quotes and advice from Sweat Sisters.

FOUNDER | Aeshia is living her dream. The social entrepreneur unites and empowers girls to be health leaders in their communities. The child obesity epidemic along with the void of entertaining yet positive fitness content and events for young women (ages 13-22) led to the conception and rapid growth of her passionate venture. Before creating Pretty Girls Sweat, Aeshia worked in the TV industry for over 9 years - working her way up from an intern at ABC to a producer on Sundance Channel's celebrated, primetime series ICONOCLASTS. The former high school athlete (track, volleyball, and basketball) and proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. was also a model for Wilhelmina in New York City. In her free time, the wife and mother of three girls enjoys reading inspirational books, listening to music, eating great food with friends, and enjoying the outdoors.
