Two Chicagoans who are part of the conference came into our ABC 7 studio to tell us about their success stories. Zoë Damacela (http://www.zoedamacela.com/) went from rags to riches - from being homeless to being a fashion designer. She speaks at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, 2013. Emerson Spartz (www.spartzmedia.com) is a young Internet expert, and he'll speak at 2:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, 2013.
