Welcome to another edition of Entrepreneur Fridays where we profile young business owners. Today I have a great interview for you guys with the founder of a non-profit organization. Sheena Williams is the founder of She Will Inc, a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt organization based in the Atlanta area. It was designed to educate young girls, between the ages of 8 and 17, on the importance of financial literacy and career empowerment.
About Sheena Williams
Sheena created the organization in the height of economic crisis and restructuring in the United States. Consumers were uneducated on the importance of financial management, which attributed to the economic recession.
Sheena states, “As an adolescent girl, my father would always reiterate the importance of being responsible with money. I did not understand what that meant nor was I educated on the importance of it. Due to financial illiteracy, I made irresponsible financial decisions and accumulated unnecessary debt. I bless God for provision, because my education and experiences attributed to the development of SheWill Inc. to help young girls avoid mistakes that could potentially paralyze their future endeavors.”
