I am sooo excited to share this podcast episode with everyone! One of my goals when starting this podcast was to give young girls who are doing great work in school and there community a voice. Their are so many podcasts now that are geared and focused solely on adults, but the more I looked at my own group of young girls I realized that people need to know the positive things they are doing.
I discovered Pretty Girl Teez when they started to follow our Instagram page. After reading their business bio on their page I was interested in learning more about the company and the owner. During this podcast you will learn more about the owner, Azaria Cherry and how Pretty Girl Teez and her non-profit, Z inc. came about.
Here is her bio for you to read:
Azaria Cherry is a 13 year old, rising freshman at Maury High School in Norfolk, VA. Since the tender age of 6 she has dreamed of attending Spelman and aspires to become a pediatrician. In fact, she is one of 48 students selected within the entire city of Norfolk to participate in the prestigious Maury Medical and Health Specialities program. A medical partnership between her high school and Eastern Virginia Medical School that allows students to take medical courses on top of their required Advanced Diploma workload. Azaria’s love for science, human rights, and entrepreneurship has allowed her to form her own organization for inner city youth girls and her own clothing business selling positive affirmation tee-shirts. In her spare time, she enjoys numerous volunteer community engagements, cheering on her high school JV squad, Forensics, National Jr. Honor Society, FBLA, and Swimming. Although her plate is extremely full she maintains nothing less than a 3.8 GPA. Over the next couple of years she looks forward to tackling more personal goals that she has set for herself.
I hope you are inspired by her story and goals for life. I will forever be grateful for her, because by discovering her she forced me to research "How to record interviews for podcasting". I kept making excuses as to why I couldn't record interviews, but because I wanted people to learn about this #Phenomenal young girl I challenged myself to find the solution on how to record an interview.
Please support and follow her on all her social media pages. She is having a Back to School drive in the Norfolk area. So if you are in the area reach out to her to see if she needs any assistance.
