BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:

The Proverbs 31 Women’s Organization

HOUSTON, TX

ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
The Proverbs 31 Women’s Organization meets the need in underserved communities for the lack of female mentorship and professional education provided to young women ages 13-18 years old in these communities.

The Proverbs 31 Women’s Organization is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, and the hands and feet of love, going into impoverished communities to provide free female mentorship and professional education to young teens, inspiring them to graduate high school, giving them the confidence to pursue their passions, and helping them with school work.

As a result of our grassroots-led initiatives, we have served almost 100 young women from low-income communities across Texas, with programs being planted in other underserved communities across the country.

THE STORY:
My profession in entrepreneurship and philanthropy stems from a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Texas at San Antonio, which led me to work in engineering and management for Fortune 500 companies such as Dow Chemical Company, Pratt & Whitney of United Technologies, and Union Pacific Railroad Company.

As a minority in my industry, I noticed the scarcity of positive female mentorship for young women who looked like me in my community.

My desire to help and inspire young women and minorities in the industries of business and technology opened the door for me to start The Proverbs 31 Women’s Organization on December 19, 2016.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:
To date, the organization has reached almost 100 female students who come from underserved communities through P31 Academy and the P31 Mentorship Program, and has worked with community partners such as The Boys & Girl’s Club and Microsoft.

I am most pleased by the student testimonials from our programming:

“This program has helped me set my priorities between school and work. P31 has helped me with Time Management.”

“I’ve been helped with public speaking. It’s also helped me be comfortable with talking to people.”

“This class today was very helpful for me because I have been looking for a job and needed some practice on how to be in an interview. Through this class, I learned how to improve my interviewing skills.”

“The class was beneficial to me because prior to the class, I only had a vague idea of how to create a resume.”

“My experience was really good everyone was polite and helpful.”

I am also very thankful for the "Trailblazer Award" given to me from The Professional Association of Young Africans during the PAYA Houston 2018 Honors Ball.

ADVICE:
The best advice I've ever received is to set priorities for my work/life balance, and that there's no such thing as balancing, but to set priorities.

OUTLOOK:
In the next 5-10 years, I see The Proverbs 31 Women's Organization planted in school districts across the country, serving underserved young women in impoverished communities alongside community partners. I also see the organization raising up young women to be responsible, confident, and multifaceted in their individual callings.
