We want to thank everyone for an INCREDIBLE event. Our second annual Beauty ‘N Brunch turned out to be a huge success! We had a group of amazing, motivational women as panelists & guest speakers, and the audience left inspired by each of their insight. Those women included our guest speakers - Representative Debbie Meyers-Martin and Christine Neal, and our panelists - Amber Anderson, Diamond Webb, Nikki Mash Boduch, Jacqueleen Clark-Crittle, Adwoa M. Awotwi, Dr. Karen Johnson, Donna Bellinger, Justice Cynthia Y. Cobbs, and Eva Kennedy. Tears were shed, and emotions were high, and that was all before our returning keynote speaker Ashley Weatherspoon of @dearyoungqueen shared her relatable and inspirational story.
Out of over 400 applications, we were able to choose 25 scholarship finalists, and ultimately FIVE scholarship winners. Congratulations to all of the well deserving ladies - Kamarie Brown of Spelman College, recipient of the Juanza "Mama" Brown Memorial Scholarship; Kyra Patterson of Howard University, recipient of the $10,000 pre-law scholarship; Leah Fulton of University of Minnesota, recipient of the Doctoral Moms x BB Scholarship; Maya Hill of University of Wisconsin-Madison and Alexis Ihezue of Boston University, recipients of the annual Beauty and Brains Scholarship Award.
Additionally, we selected a group of outstanding Ambassadors, including Aamina Adebayo, Avery Bolden, Prevail Bonga, Austynn Bradfield, Jenice Brown, Autumn Brownfield, Hannah Glass, Maya Hill, Stacia Humphrey, Mary Koku, Brianna Lambert, Kyla Lee, Ashley Meeky, Kyra Patterson, Tatyana St. Clair, Jaela Stephens, Aaliyah Tinsley, Kapinga Tshiteya, and Alicia Wormley. This event was further confirmation of the impact Beauty and Brains will have on women everywhere, and we are excited to keep expanding to new heights.
NONE OF THIS WOULD BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT YOU!
Your support, donations, & involvement are what allowed us to provide these scholarships, host this event, and continue inspiring young women everywhere! 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. Beauty and Brains is just getting started 💖
