Brianna Brown- Cohort 1 - NCCU Chapter

"Since becoming a member of the J.E.W.E.L.S. organization in 2019, becoming a better leader has been instilled within me. I have had the pleasure of networking and learning through so many people. It was also a pleasure to serve as the FIRST Vice President of this illustrious organization. To be a member of this group means that you share a common goal with other like-minded women to be an advocate for the voiceless and give back a greater good to the community. This organization brings so much life and happiness to me. I am forever grateful for our founders, my sisters, and all of the hard work that is soon to come."
