The Women’s Resource Center will celebrate its last event of Herstory month with guest speaker MILCK.
She comes to inspire and motivate CPP students.
Connie Lim, also known as MILCK, is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles, Calif. that has established a powerful movement through her music and has become a role model to many individuals.
MILCK rose to fame when she sang seven different a capella versions of her hit song “Quiet.”
She performed her song with several other female singers on the streets in Washington D.C. during last year’s Women’s March.
A video of one of the performances was posted on social media and instantly went viral with millions of views in only two days.
“I participated in the first Women’s March in LA and listened to her song as an inspiration and motivation both before the March and after,” said Jillian Furiga, a fourth-year Ethnic and Women’s studies student and a social justice leader at the Women’s Resource Center.
“Students should come to this event because she was such a big part of the social media presence for the Women’s March and it’s really cool we have the chance to meet her in person.”
MILCK keynote event will include her own experiences with abuse.
She also hopes to empower others to overcome challenges and negativity in their everyday lives.
The event will take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Mar. 28 at the University Theatre in Building 24.
