@MandaNorthern - Atlanta, GA
This powerful boss lady is a part of one of the most creative movements for women in Atlanta, Georgia. Manda Northern is one woman of the dynamic duo that formed Black Girls Create International. This beauty, Manda Northern, took a moment to share her voice with us!
"My voice is powerful because it inspires confidence in women may be too afraid to utilize their creative gifts and talents. My voice empowers other women to raise their voices too, increase their sense of self-efficacy, personal agency, and self-esteem! With these tools of empowerment, we as women can realize and actualize the power within us."
BLACK GIRLS CREATE INTERNATIONAL was created by friends Cina James and Manda Northern in November, 2017. The purpose of this organization is to empower creative women of color to start their own businesses, to build those crucial relationships necessary for success and support, and to help women build a sisterhood through which anything could be accomplished.
Urged on by the fact that there's currently no other organization in the Atlanta area that's dedicated to uplifting, connecting, and empowering creative, entrepreneurial women of color, Cina and Manda knew they had to do something to fill the gap. The idea for BGC started over brunch one Sunday and within a week, Cina and Manda had put something together. With both ladies being a serial entrepreneur, they knew rapid action was the key to bringing this idea to life.
