Southlake Teens and Their Summer Plans

by Joy Donovan on June 14, 2013

Not all teenagers are up to no good.

In fact, two Southlake teenagers are up to a lot of good.

Maria and Julia Myers of Southlake have started their own non-profit organization. How’s that for not having to whine “Mom, I’m bored” at the beginning of summer?

The inspiration was the documentary “Walk to Beautiful,” a tale of five women who suffer from poverty and inadequate healthcare. The Southlake sisters’ reaction sent them into action. The two girls created the charity Pretty Purposeful and have planned a special fundraiser, set for Tuesday at Timarron Country Club, 1400 Byron Nelson Parkway, in Southlake. The event will feature speakers with topics aimed at teens.
