On Saturday, November 9, Sweety High joined thousands of Girl Scouts, celebrities and more at the L.A. Convention center for a massive girl power event at Girltopia 2013!Girltopia 2013

Girls Scouts from across the country congregated in Los Angeles on Saturday to see amazing exhibits, take part in fun but strenuous workouts, learn about career opportunities, and be empowered!

A celebrity hotspot hosted by BYOU Magazine also allowed Girl Scouts to meet and get autographs from celebrities including Laura Marano, Bethany Mota, Olivia Holt, Peyton List and many many more!

“I think it’s awesome because it’s so positive here, everyone is so happy, and loud and awesome,” YouTube beauty guru Bethany Mota told Sweety High. “I think it’s just a very positive, happy event and everyone’s just getting along great and i think that’s what’s making it very powerful.”

Celebrities also took part in a celebrity empowerment panel in the morning, and a “Girl Talk” panel in the afternoon!

At the first panel, Disney, Nickelodeon, and MTV stars took to the stage to talk about encouraging girls and being positive role models.

“Anyone who tries to bring you down is already beneath you,” said panelist Allisyn Ashley Arm, best known for her role as Zora on Disney’s Sonny with a Chance. “Try not to listen to that, and remember that you are an awesome individual. There’s a lot of being out there who are going to have you back.”

Panelist Laura Marano, of Austin & Ally fame, added that popularity isn’t important. What should be important is happiness.

“I want to be a positive person,” Laura said. “I want to hang out with people who make me feel good about myself, and I want them to feel good about themselves. We need to be individuals, and we need to be proud of who we are.”

The event also featured awesome performances by artists including The Sledge Grits Band, Dara Sisterhen, Kat McNamara, and IM5 featuring Diamond White!

Sweety High also had an exhibit of their very own where girls learned all about our anti-bullying community and the amazing prizes and opportunities to be won at Sweety High! We also gave away some awesome swag to Girl Scouts!

Stay tuned over the following week for one-on-one interviews with many of the celebrities featured at Girltopia!
