This past week, tgin hosted ninety 10th grade students from the Young Women’s Leadership Charter School (YWLCS) to expose them to entrepreneurship. YWLCS is the only all girls public school in the City of Chicago, whose mission is to inspires urban girls to engage in rigorous college preparatory learning in a small school focused on math, science and technology that nurtures their self-confidence and challenges them to achieve. A majority of the students hail predominately from the south and west sides of Chicago.

After kicking off the morning with donuts and orange juice, our CEO, Chris-Tia Donaldson welcomed the girls to Industrial Council of Northwest of Chicago (ICNC) and shared her journey from Harvard lawyer working in corporate America to hair care entrepreneur. The girls were then invited to tour our facility, interact with Chris-Tia on a personal level, and ask questions about the business that got them excited about their futures!

Overall, this was a wonderful event. Special thanks again to ICNC for considering us for this opportunity.
