"As a black woman, being able to share my experiences, passion, and expertise with these aspiring entrepreneurs was not only fulfilling but also deeply meaningful. Witnessing their growth, confidence, and creativity flourish as they learned to embrace their unique identities while honing their business skills was a testament to the power of mentorship and the boundless potential within every girl. "
