The Make Waves Program

Here at CONQUERing, we are on a mission to empower others. We started our Make Waves Program to recognize young voices across the nation creating waves of positivity and change in their communities. Whether they’re speaking out on social media or hosting events in their hometown, we will recognize young leaders who are fearless in their pursuit of change. Each month, the selected changemakers will receive a CONQUERing “Make Waves” ring or necklace and a special-edition CONQUERing WaveMaker sweatshirt. In addition, they will be featured on CONQUERing’s social media channels to support and amplify their voices.

The Make Waves Program was inspired by our Founder's daughter, Olivia Nelson. Learn more about the origins of the program here

With lines of marchers spanning a few miles long, these inspiring young women brought together a diverse group of community members in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. The rally was a massive success, and Mason community members of all ages were in attendance. We are so excited to recognize these impressive young women as our first CONQUERing WaveMakers, and we know they are going to continue making waves in their community.
