Website: or Years in Business/Profession: I have over 28 years of experience in positive youth development and 15 years as the Founder and Executive Director of Diamond In The Rough. What is Diamond in the Rough Youth Development Program? Diamond In The Rough (DITR), is an award-winning, faith-based, non-denominational, youth development and leadership program dedicated to “Transforming the world . . . One child, one family, one community at a time.” DITR offers a variety of preventative programs and enrichment activities designed to build self-esteem, character, and leadership among girls of all ages, through group mentoring, leadership training, career coaching and family enrichment activities. Why is making your “mark” so important to you? Making my “mark” is imperative, because my “mark” and success is directly connected to helping others make their “mark” on earth. If my life can be used to help women and girls tap into their purpose and full potential, then my life will have been well-lived. I love to help people by showing them... how to fully embrace their value as well as their full potential and confidently walk in their purpose without apology. Who should pick up the phone and call Diamond in the Rough today? Parents, potential partners and donors, in addition, passionate professionals who are looking for an opportunity to positively impact the next generation. I’m passionate about what I do because... I know first-hand what it’s like to be a Diamond In The Rough. Once, my vision was a little cloudy, I was unformed and often overlooked, until I experienced a season of personal self-discovery, was placed in the right hands, formed, polished and given an opportunity to SHINE. What do your clients say about you? Most of my clients would say that I am a hopeful visionary who sees promise in everyone and makes an effort to equip and empower others to reach their full potential. What inspires you and your organization to empower the next generation of young girls? At DITR, we truly believe the Girls Rule the World, and when their eyes are open and they begin to embrace the beauty, boldness and brilliance within, they can positively impact and transform our world.
