Some eastern Iowa girls seeking to overcome obstacles holding a special art exhibit today in downtown Waterloo.

"We Strive" a local non-profit organization is designed to empower young women.

Today...These girls put their own works of art on display.  We Strive Director Amber Collins explains how making art helps these girls.

"They deal with a lot of emotion and they don't know where to channel that so we inspire the girls that there are beautiful thing they can do to direct that energy and one of the thing we had the ladies do is create beautiful beautiful works of art."

The girls of "We Strive" with the help of an art instructor helped organize the exhibit today and had a silent auction to allow people to purchase the art.
