Keynote Speakers
Veronica Bacquet has overcome many challenges and is an inspiration to girls that they can also rise above any struggles they may be facing. As a teen girl she experienced a troubled home life, used alcohol and drugs, and nearly lost her life to suicide. But today, through the power of God at work in her life, she is thriving and walking in wholeness and joy as a wife and mother of three. She serves at her church alongside her husband who is a Youth Pastor in Vista, California. 

Allie Marie Smith is the Founder and Director of Wonderfully Made® and is an award-winning author, speaker, podcast host, and certified life coach. As a scholar-athlete in high school, Allie looked like she had the ideal life but was struggling with loneliness, unworthiness, and depression. She has dedicated her life to helping young women discover their true worth and purpose while inspiring them to know that they too can overcome any trial and lead a flourishing and wholehearted life. Her book Wonderfully Made: Discover the Identity, Love, and Worth You Were Created For is a guidebook to help girls and women walk confidently in their worth and live the abundant lives they were created for. She lives in North Santa Barbara County where she loves surfing and adventuring up and down the California coast with her husband, Paul, and Golden Retriever Gidget. 

Kate Merrick is a wife, mom, and author of And Still, She Laughs as well as Here, Now. She is the co-owner and designer of Mijas Del Mar (Daughters of the Sea), a collection of pre and post-surf styles inspired by vintage California and the golden lifestyle. She speaks, writes, creates, plays, and lives with her family in Carpinteria. 

Worship Leaders
Vita Sagisi is 15 years old. She has been part of the youth worship team at Calvary Chapel Santa Maria for 3 years. She enjoys being creative through music and art. 

Kiera Reitzin is sixteen and lives in Santa Barbara where she attends Providence School. She has loved music since she was young and leads worship at her youth group at Anthem Chapel.  She enjoys songwriting, being in creation, and eating good food with her family and friends.
