UPLIFT'S main mission was to inform all women on the issues affecting them, and to promote unity and advancement in their personal relationships, careers, communities, and personal lives. "I wanted my organization to be the connecting piece between all of the women's' organizations on campus. I wanted to help make all of our goals more attainable," said president and founder Donica Beckett, when asked about what motivated her to start UPLIFT in April 2002. The four main priorities of UPLIFT were fundraising, marketing, community service, and program involvement. UPLIFT held their first fundraising event, "Treasure Your Life," at the Women's Health Exposition on September 19,2002. "It was a great success and a lot of fun." said Donica. Donica was a "GIRL'S INC" mentor, and encouraged other UPLIFT members to do the same type of community service and volunteer work. Along with the free massages, facials, and food, the ladies enjoyed a speech on "Women and Self Esteem," presented by Avila Steele. This event was a collaboration of many on-campus organizations such as UPLIFT, AAPHC-Mu Delta, the Women's Studies Program, and the Women's Health and Wellness Center. In addition, many local Houston organizations like the Women's Pregnancy Center, the Houston Area Women's Center, the Crisis Intervention Center of Houston, and the Blood Center came out to donate their time and services as well. UPLIFT'S contribution to the "Harbors of Hope Campaign" was setting up tables to ask people to donate dollar bills. All of the donations bought toiletry and hygiene items for the women and children of the Houston Area Women's Center. - Dixie Ann Dalton UPLIFT President, Donica Beckett Vice President, Sarah Akpanumoh VP Finance, Elizabeth Aguirre VP Communication, Demetria Broussard VP Programs, Jennifer Pammit VP Programs, Keta Patel Advisor, Mrs. Tina Blakes Enlightenment Guest speaker Leona Roberts gives a speech about the importance of self-esteem for UPLIFT'S members and guests.
