My mentor, Curtis Baugh, told me about a program One Million Black Women: Black in Business. It included 12 weeks of business education, in-person learning at Goldman Sachs headquarters, a $2,000 stipend and advisors assigned to assist along the way. I applied, and within two weeks I was in New York! From the moment I walked in the room at Goldman Sachs I was greeted with affirmation, smiles, hospitality and so much love.
The beauty of this is, I’ll never feel the stressful rush to make a salon appointment before a vacay or a birthday or any special occasion. Covid has taught me I can rely on me. It’s changed me (and my hair) forever.
