RICHMOND, Va. – A program is giving young girls a chance to show elegance, poise, and how to love themselves and their community.

The "Princess for a Day" organization is kicking off its second year in the River City.

Hampton Roads native Coressa Williams developed the six-month program to teach girls ages 3 to 15 skills they don't necessarily learn in school.

That includes table manners, public speaking, posture, and how to dress fashionably.

One young lady taking part in the program told CBS 6 the experience helped her show off her passion for cooking.

"It's kind, it's fun and you will do fun things," she noted.

Williams says registration is open right now.
