My experiences and accomplishments are a combination of the many great women who came into my life and helped nurture who I am today. I am beyond thankful to the women who never gave up on me and constantly instilled in me that there is greatness inside of me. Their constant support and love help me navigate through this tough world and overcome many adversities.
Their hands-on approach helped me to define my beauty based off of the person within rather than my outward appearance. I became comfortable with who I was made to be despite society’ extreme pressures to conform to its rules.
I was blessed to find strong women who took the time to nurture me, groom me, and lead me in the right direction. Because of this, I now strive for excellence in each day and to not become a clone from what I see in the world, but allow my journey to shape and mold me.
I want all women to have access to mentors they can trust, mentors who champion and support them through good times and bad. Beautiful I Am is working to provide this type of support to women and girls in the Washington D.C. and beyond. Check out our amazing programs.
As the president of the Beautiful I am board of directors, I am excited to take this journey with you and watch you tap into the greatness within.
