It takes a village to raise a child and when my daughter was a teenager, Sisterhood Agenda was my village. They helped her with her self esteem issues and to be proud of who she was as an African American young women with great potential. The goals of the Sisterhood and the strong women that gave of their time and their talent was impeccable. I take my hat off to this organization, and they come highly recommended for their honest dedication, and the love they showed for their work in esteem-building and self empowerment of our young women.
If teenagers are armed with motivation, information and resources, I believe anyone can achieve success, no matter their background or life experience. That is one of the many reasons why I established my own Youth & Education Expo’s and why organizations like Sisterhood Agenda are beneficial to today’s young girls.Judge Greg Mathis Superior Court Judge2014-02-28
