Four years ago I participated in an amazing #SisterCircle at Georgia Tech, with the Atlanta-based nonprofit, Sisters of Today and Tomorrow (SOT)—who hosted the event. Here are some pics:
Well, their founder, Carla Morrison, invited me to return this year. Carla knows that I love and live to serve, and if I can make the time, I will never say no. So, I immediately checked my calendar and replied “sign me up!”
So tonight, I will join a jam-packed room of queens and princesses, as we kickoff the Sisters of Today National Leadership Conference.
Tonight’s event, the #LevelUp Fundraiser/Reception is going to be fun. I highlighted the event and my confirmed attendance on my social media…
Then tomorrow, July 19th, I will be facilitating the #SisterCircle with an SOT alum, Idalis. I know it will be fun, deep, engaging, emotional, constructive, and impactful— because I’m still reflecting on the one that I co-facilitated four years ago, so as SOT said on their social media feeds the other day…
I think our circle tomorrow will most definitely be 🔥🔥🔥

Warmest wishes and love,
I found this quote online and had to share it. I couldn’t selfishly keep it to myself. I know there’s countless females around the world who would also benefit from these words. The source of the quote is unknown, but that’s okay, because ultimately it comes from above and it’s filled with love!
As a woman, there’s a heavy burden placed upon us. Society has an image of us that they try to bind us to, and no matter how hard we resist their ‘box’, they still won’t stop trying to shove us in it. That’s why we can’t afford to slack off and be beaten down and broken. We must stand tall and speak clearly, unwavering and determined.
Today I dedicate this message to all of the young, maturing, and seasoned women in the world. To the princesses and to the queens, this message is for you. For the teenage girls entering womanhood, this message is for you.
This may be a “man’s world”, but women make it go ’round. Don’t you ever forget that. Don’t you ever buy the story being sold that would diminish your role and importance in this life. Don’t you ever drink the koolaid that would have you to believe that you are less than a man. God made women carriers of life for a reason.
Keep your head up, eyes focused, and heart warm. Your feet will follow. Stay centered on goodness and expect nothing but greatness.
That ceiling will come tumbling down. Those barriers will crash. Those limitations will grow smaller. Those “isms” will begin to lose their power and influence. We’ve come a long way. We’re not turning back or giving up. We can only be defeated when we surrender. We will NOT surrender!
I love you all!
