Who Is Your Hero? Why?

My hero is Oprah Winfrey. I love that she is not only a smart and successful business woman, but she empowers others to succeed.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

A confident empowered woman speaking with assurance and authority.

What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

My project “She Mogul” serves others by providing the tools and skills to effectively balance the challenges of being a female minority. My program will teach women to be financially savvy, socially poised and marketable in the workplace. My program will also encourage entrepreneurship and teach women how to be leaders within their respective communities by building themselves up economically.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

A laptop would help me to create worksheets and materials for my classes. I currently have to travel to a library or sneak during work time to the create materials I use to teach. A laptop would also allow me to host webinars and online workshops to reach others outside my immediate community.

What do you love about this project?

I love that now more than ever women have the opportunity to create the income required to support their families. I want to teach women in the lower economic classes that they do not have to remain there. There are more resources available and being a slave to the welfare system or low paying jobs are not their only options.

What Languages do you speak?

English.

Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?

Mac
