In celebration of Black History Month and in support of the communities Alltel Wireless serves, Alltel along with Dr. Maya Angelou are joining hands to ask how will you build on a new spirit of change? If you answer the question and are seeking to attend a historically black college, you could potentially win $10,000 scholarship monies!
To get you going, I have decided to share with you how I intend to build on a new spirit of change. Please read and share with your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers etc. so they can apply to win!
For me, there remains a keen interest in combining my love for law with fashion to reach people in ways never done before. Very specifically, it means continuing the Ladybrille mantra of bringing African fashions directly to Western consumers. Further, it means engaging this year, more so than ever before, government agencies, trade organizations, professional organizations and non-profits whose interests are aligned with Ladybrille’s to really tune into the debilitating state of Africa’s textile and clothing industries; and its impact on Africa’s women, children and overall GDP.
I will write more extensively from a legal and policy standpoint and freelance my work to publications that target the above groups, as I create awareness and suggest solutions. I will attend and speak, as often as I can, about the state of Africa’s clothing and textile industries. My hope is when all is said and done, I would have contributed in my own small way to helping revive and restore jobs to many women and men in Africa. Sounds like a tall order doesn’t it? Well, I’ll take it one day at a time and luckily for me, I now have you to join me in these efforts with your continued support of Ladybrille.
