The Beauty In/Beauty Out (BIBO) Tour Chicago 2014 celebrated and honored some of the most intelligent beautiful women from various backgrounds Saturday, Oct. 11 with a lavished event at Catalyst Ranch, located in the West Loop Downtown area. Traci S. Campbell, Founder of BIBO, has dedicated her life to uplifting and educating young women. In her quest to do so, she has solicited experts, in their own rite, to mentor and highlight their accomplishments to encourage the young women.
As a young lady, Traci worked to help her Mom, who was a single mother. Employed at prestigious companies, she gained a wealth of knowledge and experience, however Traci struggled with low self-esteem and low self-confidence. Knowing, oh too well, these vices of her youth, as an adult, she endeavored to fill those pieces of her life’s puzzle and embarked upon her purpose. Following her passion, Traci created Beauty In Beauty Out as an organization to nurture young ladies in the areas of self-confidence and self-worth, among others.
The evening of BIBO Tour Chicago 2014 started off with the honorees getting the royal treatment in the glam room and then off to the purple carpet for photos.
