"In a world where you can be anything, be a Black Girl RISING." - Jae Shoats
This is for my BLACK QUEENS who are rising to their rightful positions in the world.
I know I won’t be the first or the last but let me tell you that NOTHING WORTH HAVING COMES EASY!
For the past 5 years, I’ve been wanting to start a Women’s Empowerment group, but FEAR. I was 20 years old at the time in my undergrad career and I didn’t know where to begin or who to ask to be a part of the group. During these 5 years, I’ve always discussed business ideas but never started. The fear of failing and fear of people not supporting me held me back. The hardest thing for me was taking that first step…. until I placed my TRUST & FAITH in God.
“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8
I positioned myself, took that leap of faith and established BLACK GIRLS RISING. Black Girls Rising is for every brown and black girl/woman that is evolving despite the circumstances she faces. When we overcome obstacles, we rise to embrace fresh opportunities. Your work will not be done, but you will have unleashed another level of greatness. Keep in mind that you will have doubts, make mistakes, and fail. Turn your trials and tribulations into triumphs. The key is to KEEP RISING QUEEN…No matter what.
But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today Deuteronomy 8:18
"There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise." - W.E.B. Dubois
