Participants of the event experienced an empowering and uplifting evening of meditation, led by Rhina Valentin, Ambassador for OPB Foundation, and the power of manifestation and goal-setting through the vision boards, also facilitated by Rhina. Participants also enjoyed music DJ’d by PHNX MPM aka Ode Hoppie, also an OPB Foundation Ambassador, while creating their unique vision boards. 

Johan Arenas of the Colombia initiative (owner of Nabguana Farm) also attended the event and Rhina led a conversation with Johan where participants learned more about the women entrepreneurship program. 

Overall, the event was a huge success. OPB Foundation even received media coverage from ViacomCBS Veterans Network! See here: https://www.viacomcbsvetnet.com/post/viacomcbs-vet-net-members-supported-and-attended-the-planting-seeds-vision-board-party-on-jan-11
