Target: Tuanni Price, Owner of Zuri Wine Tasting
Goal: Encourage women to be healthy role models for younger generations by showcasing their talents and passions
Tuanni Price, the owner and founder of Zuri Wine Tasting, doesn’t just teach people about wine. She inspires a young and impressionable generation by showcasing her wit, passion, and talent. The world of wine has traditionally been dominated by upper-class white men. As a black woman from South Central Los Angeles, Tuanni Prince shows the world (and especially young women) that we are all empowered to follow our passions. Sign this petition to encourage more women to take a stand and serve as powerful role models.
Traditionally, wine has been an industry dominated by upper class white males. The three major wine producing countries in the world – France, Italy and Spain – are all European. The Spanish brought wine to California, while Italians brought it to Italy. Australia’s wine industry was born from the efforts of a European man who imported French and Spanish wines. This brings us to the commonality between all the pioneers of wine – they were men.
Despite this historical pattern, it is possible to effectuate change. Tuanni Price’s small business shows everyone that whatever the historical precedent may be, that does not mean a person cannot follow his or her dream. Signing this petition supports Tuanni Price and everything that she stands for.
Dear Ms. Price, Founder and Owner of Zuri Wine Tasting,
As someone raising two teenaged daughters and who has served on the advisory board of Girls Inspired, an organization dedicated to empowering young women, it is obvious that being a strong role model is something near to your heart. Thank you for being such an inspirational force. It is one thing to run a successful business, and another to use that success to inspire others. Your attitude is helping to make the world a better place, one incremental shift at a time.
While Zuri Wine Tasting is only a few years old, it will be exciting to see how the business develops and continues to empower young women. Starting a business requires a lot of courage, strength, and tenacity. These characteristics are ones that you embody, and which hopefully, shall inspire other women. Thank you for all the you have done!
[Your Name Here]
