Can you name a woman, who had an impact on you as a leader?
Lula Mae Reeves and Madam CJ Walker. Reeves became one of the first African American women to own a business in Philadelphia. While Madam CJ Walker was a self-made millionaire, who owned a hair care business. As an African American entrepreneur, who owns a cupcake business, these women are a reflection of who I would like to become in the future. Representation matters.
