2019 WOMEN ON A MISSION AWARDEES
Women in the Black's Mission
"Truly I am excited and so grateful for the invitation to your Women in the Black conference. I am thankful to you for thinking it not robbery to invite my father and I to be among positive and extraordinary women. No one would have imagined that eighteen years ago that the seed that you planted would yield increasing wealth for a community and generations to come!
As you pour into more young entrepreneurs, I pray you see and reap the harvest of your labor and greater manifestations of the work that you do for others. May continual blessings of favor and prosperity be upon you and the women connected to Women in the Black and The Brownstone"
"Wow... Words can not express how grateful how blessed I feel to have had the opportunity to share the space with such dynamic individuals at the Who's the Boss: Women in the Black Conference. Both women and men believing that with commitment, knowledge and hard work.... realizing your dream is possible.
I left the conference full and ready to make moves. The resources offered coupled with the networking was phenomenal. Thank you for allowing me to share my dreams with you. From listening to my pitch to stopping by our table to sharing words of encouragement... I feel blessed.
I am most grateful that The Shoe-B allows me to continue our work in Haiti. A percentage of the sale of each Shoe-B goes towards the Survival Kit Drive for Haiti initiative"
