Central Middle School Welcomes WIGU

When I started my non-profit organization When I Grow Up, I had no clue that it would be on the level it is today. I started the program as a way to give back to my community and to also provide kids, teens with an outlet to voice and share their opinions. Being a single mother, I knew the struggles and obstacles I endured, and I was almost positive there were several other mothers battling the same. So why not provide those kids an environment where they can be empowered, inspired, and receive nuggets from wise individuals who can plant non other than greatness in the community.

Due to the success of When I Grow Up in Columbus, Ga, I've been given the opportunity to go back to my hometown, my Alma-Mater and sow seeds of greatness to the kids in Talbotton, Georgia at Central Middle School. Once a month, I will be traveling to my hometown providing mentorship to 20 young ladies pre-selected by the school for 50min. I'm overly excited and looking forward to sharing all that I have to offer to the youth. Special thanks to educator at Central Middle School, Ms. Kim Hatcher, for thinking of the youth, me, my program, and getting it approved by board. Ready or Not here I come!
