Davis has since expanded the idea for the PowerThrough[Boxing] workshop into a company called PowerThrough[That]. The organization uses different forms of experiential learning such as Yoga, FloYo and Photography to teach empowerment. Davis teaches the life skills segments of the course, while a professional counterpart, like Feldheim, from the chosen theme teaches the experiential portion. Davis tailors the workshops to the specific needs of each client.
At the end of the six-week course, Bryn Mawr students reviewed the program and their responses were overwhelmingly positive. With comments like, “I actually boxed! Like legit!” and “This was amazing and should happen again,” students said they came out of the course feeling stronger, more confident, and better equipped to handle a variety of unexpected situations. Davis says that she and Feldheim are glad they were able to bring PowerThrough[Boxing] to Bryn Mawr, “I’m so glad it paid off for the girls and they learned what we hoped they would. I’m just floored by how responsive the students have been and grateful to Ms. Summers and Ms. Budzik for trusting us, it’s a huge leap of faith.”
Davis and Feldheim also say they are grateful to Bryn Mawr for helping shape them into who they are today, and for giving them a friendship that has stood the test of time. “In truth, I didn’t realize a lot of the things I learned or valued until after I left, but Bryn Mawr helped me feel capable, which I value more than anything else, and like I could lead a life that mattered,” said Davis.
Feldheim echoed Davis saying, “I’ve learned to appreciate Bryn Mawr more and more after graduating. The friendships and connections made at Bryn Mawr have lasted 20 years past graduation and have stayed strong!”
