Empowergenics foundation is a safe network that seeks to empower, inspire and connect with children, adolescents and their families. We aim to bridge the gap to provide resources, solutions and hope to afford many individuals with the skills and ability to help them reach their goals while building character and growth.
Our main goal is to ensure that girls and adolescents feel safe, understood and supported. We also aim to generate concrete answers to current societal issues and problems.
It all started in Detroit, MI where I was born and raised by a single parent in a low socio-economic environment. As a young girl, I was exposed to family and societal issues that sparked my interest to give back to my community. My childhood inspired me to persevere and mother taught me to understand that I matter!
As I grew older, I realized that I have the ability to relate to the younger generation on a different level. I know what it's like to live in poverty, and I understand how it feels to be unheard. I came to a realization that my special gift to the world is to advocate for others and help them to reach their full potential. I know that I was created to make a positive impact on everyone around me!
I am on a mission to generate concrete answers to current societal issues and problems. My #1 goal is to reach down and help the youth and the women behind me.
