What an amazing opportunity that started with a photo shoot and resulted in a cover feature @collingswoodliving. It was an honor to be in the company of this fantastic community of trailblazing black women entrepreneurs. Thanks to Queen Jeaninne A. Cook @itsmetheyfollow for organizing this moment in women’s history, and for inspiring all of us to lift while we climb together.
Many thanks to @bridgetmassaphoto
