Here it is.
“A digital media platform where women would be educated and empowered, which leads to the effect of positive change.” That exact thought went through my head as I envisioned an all new website for the brand years ago. Let me just stop and say, WOW, it actually came to fruition.
Listen…when you have something placed on your heart, it doesn’t just go away. The idea doesn’t fade, and you certainly don’t lose interest. That thing will eat away at you until it is BIRTHED. Regardless of the set backs, difficulties, and multiple launch dates, lol. IT will happen when it is supposed to, on its own time…and date.
I wanted this platform to be something that wasn’t about me. I wanted it to be about women from every walk of life. I wanted women to be able to use their voice to share their stories, trials and triumphs. I wanted everyone to have A SEAT AT THE TABLE.

I don’t proclaim to have all of the answers, know all the facts, or have experienced it all, but I seek to EMPOWER. Empowerment is a process of change, then it becomes a meaningful concept. The Femme Focus is a platform for that sole purpose! This is only the beginning. Walk with US on this journey and together we can uplift one another.
