Branding has been one of the largest ideals of the organization and how to network not only within the community but outside association as well. Through our Fund raisers (Raffle, Soldier Field stand and Ad book bags) for our college scholarships as well as our outreach and Mentoring program, we have shown large stride in our efforts to brand in a positive light. As a product of college and environment of a strong positive environment and a strong since of education and being an advocate & educator I assumed the role of a leader at a young age. I also saw that my cousins (females) also took the same roles, from our family upbringing.
