“Getting involved with The Right Kind of Black Girl has been one of the best professional decisions I have ever made. I have had the privilege to work alongside like-minded Black women to design programs that positively impact the lives of other Black women and men in this country. Prior to joining, I had not really seen myself as entrepreneurial. Although this is something that my mother told me before, it is not something I have seen done in my family or my community. TRKBG has exposed me to ideas and given me the confidence and encouragement to pursue my own entrepreneurial adventures on my quest to financial freedom. I come from a community where we are expected to get a good job and work for someone else until we retire. It has been such a mindset shift to consider working for myself and making wealth and opportunity available to my family and friends through my own efforts.”

“When I joined TRKBG, I just wanted to find friends that looked like me and experienced life through the same lens. And even then, I was still worried about fitting in or whether I would be “Black” enough—as if that were a thing. I hoped to find a friend. Literally, I would have been happy with just one new friend. After just a few months, I saw a difference in the way I walked and the way I talked. I was more motivated to take on challenges and push myself to achieve goals in areas I did not previously know about. In my search for friends, I gained a sisterhood and confidence. I even developed my leadership skills. I have been encouraged to grow and expand my knowledge base and business capacity within and outside of the TRKBG. Without this organization, I would still be afraid to step outside of my box and meet new people and accept myself fully for who I am”

“Moving to California was already a big risk for me but once I got here I struggled with making friends or just meeting genuine people. However, since joining the TRKBG I have a support system and I have also met some incredible professional women. Many of the women in the group are just like me and we all have something in common. I was able to expand my network and explore new experiences. I really enjoying learning about difference experiences these women have been through or are currently going through. I believe each member brings something unique to the group”

“TRKBG has given me the opportunity to bond with several talented, driven, and intelligent black women through shared experiences and engaging conversations. The group has encouraged me to open my mind to new ideas and enabled me to learn by trying new activities outside of my comfort zone”
