“Because of my commitment to our youth, and my heart for our young girls in particular, when invited to serve as a Board Member for the “Girls into Women” Program of the Rhonda Walker Foundation, I accepted without hesitation.
“I am motivated to continue to serve this Foundation, by the “girls” themselves. Their potential and positive transformations make me want to see and to give more. They have all been absolutely incredible to watch. “Holding others accountable, leads oneself to being accountable.” Serving on the Board of Directors for the Rhonda Walker Foundation has made me a better person, woman, mother, business woman and friend.”
