Beauty N' Brunch 2019

We want to thank everyone for an INCREDIBLE event. Our first ever Beauty ‘N Brunch turned out to be a huge success! The panel was full of amazing, motivational women, and the audience was extremely interactive. Women on the panel included Micheline Drummond, Modi, Dr. Rita McGuire, Jacqueleen Crittle, Parker Scott, and ourselves, Janet and Jennifer Martin.


Tears were shed, and emotions were high, and that was all before our special guest speaker Ashley Weatherspoon of @dearyoungqueen came and told her inspirational story. Our 2018 Scholarship recipient, Joi Newson, led a toast to the scholars, which preceded the awarding of the 2019 scholarship to Rachel Williams, who recently begun her junior year at Spelman College.


Additionally, we selected a group of amazing Ambassadors, including Ciara Evans, Kai Foster, Avion Lopez, Angel Williams, and Kené Uwajeh! This event was confirmation of the impact Beauty and Brains will have on women everywhere, and we are excited to keep expanding to new heights.



Your support & involvement is what allowed us to provide this scholarship, host this event, and continue inspiring the young women of Chicago. We have received so many messages from young women who attended about how the event positively impacted their life, and really allowed them to network, while being inspired. We are so blessed, and excited to see what the future holds.


This is only the beginning✨
