Jasmine Lewis earned a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication from Virginia Union University, and is currently finishing a Master’s degree in Business Administration. Jasmine turns to Oprah Winfrey for her favorite words of advise: "it doesn't matter who you are, where you come from. The ability to triumph begins with you - always."
Wilfreda Urquheart graduated from Old Dominion University with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice. She serves as a Sr. Business Systems Analyst. When Wilfreda needs a boost, she turns to Maya Angelou: "we may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated."
Tammie Lett-Chalmers graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University and later attended Strayer University where she focused on Business Administration. Staying humble and always willing to lend a helping hand, Tammie keeps Althea Gibson Darben's words close to heart: "no matter what accomplishments you make, somebody helps you.”
Tia Barker earned a Bachelor's degree from Liberty University in Psychology. Also a fan of Maya Angelou, Tia values her words on accountability: "do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."
Nykia Ward attended Old Dominion University and went on to earn a Master's degree in Human Resource Management / Pubic Administration. She currently serves as a Special Education teacher. Nykia holds Lamentations 3:22-23 close to her heart: "because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
Dorothy Fuller graduated from Virginia Union University and earned a Master's degree in Christian Education. Dorothy has a heart after our founding principle of service, and her favorite lyric is "If I can help somebody as I pass along...then my living shall not be in vain," originally written by Alma Androzzo and recorded by many greats including Mahalia Jackson.
Selina Simmon earned a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from North Carolina Central University. She went on to obtain a Master's degree in Human Resources from the University of Phoenix. Selina serves as a Contract Administrator for a Defense Contract Management Agency. Inspired by the songbird Janelle Monae, Selina is reminded of her words - “embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable. I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness."
