 Her signature Faith, Love and You: F.L.Y. Ladies Empowerment Summit is gearing up to educate, motivate and inspire attendees to action. Formed in 2016 by Tressa and eight of her student mentees, the F.L.Y. Team held its first event in the Maryland area, by hosting approximately two hundred women. Speakers ranged from entrepreneurs, seasoned and budding authors, publishers, makeup artists to celebrity fashion stylists.

Aptly nicknamed "FLY NY," this year's summit will not only include legacy F.L.Y. team members, but Tressa has invited some of her followers and friends from the New York area and national celebrities to add even more flair. Attendees will network shoulder to shoulder with celebrities and professional women that they might not otherwise meet face to face. There will be AUTHORS; a BOUNCEBACK PANEL; a CELEBRITY MEDIA MOGUL PANEL, along with TONS OF PRIZES, GIVEAWAYS AND SO MUCH MORE! Here is what the F.L.Y. Team has in store:
