Seventy-five seventh-grade girls sat and listened as Melonie Ducre Johnson, president and COO of MGM National Harbor, told them of her moments of self-doubt and ensuing reaffirmation of self-love. “I stood up for myself, and I wasn’t going to allow somebody to just push me in a corner and tell me that I was something I knew that I wasn’t, because I thought I was a queen,” Ducre Johnson said. “When you're successful and you look back you're gonna be so proud of yourself that you didn’t allow someone else to break you.” The fall summit for the ASPIRE initiative, created by the Washington R...
