Actress Kate Hudson empowers teens at summit
WASHINGTON (AP) — Actress-producer Kate Hudson says the pressure of stepping out of the shadow of her movie star mom Goldie Hawn was discouraging and daunting.
She advised girls to take a chance on their own talent and take risks as they choose a career path. Hudson spoke at the ANNpower Leadership Forum, a week-long program that unites teens from across the country with women leaders in business, entertainment and nonprofit groups.
The "Almost Famous" star and Ann Taylor spokeswoman is a member of the advisory council that mentors the girls and recommends grants for community projects, from a healthy eating program to a clothing collection drive.
Joining the actress were Ann Inc. CEO Kay Krill and Washington non-profit Vital Voices Global Partnership CEO Alyse Nelson.
