GIRLS WHO BRUNCH TOUR

BY: KIMBERLY ALSUP

On May 27, 2018, I had the opportunity to attend the Girls Who Brunch Tour Tutus and Tennis Shoes Gala. This was my first introduction to this amazing organization and I have to say it exceeded my expectations. Personally, I have a heart for teenage girls and to be able to be in the room with such strong women and girls was refreshing. Watching the girls have so much fun in a safe environment was a sight to see.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER:

Ni’cola Mitchell is a best-selling author and has been featured in Black Enterprise as one of the 5-Follow Worthy Bloggers to Watch. She joined the literary scene with one main objective: To Stimulate Your Mind, One Word At A Time. Through her independent publishing company NCM Publishing, she published numerous titles which have been featured on various best-selling lists throughout the country. She started Girls Who Brunch out of a need to help at-risk girls that would be lost if they didn’t have anyone step in. Being an at-risk girl was all too familiar to her because she too was at-risk at a certain time in her life. On the tour, Ni’cola aims to bring well-known people in the community for the girls to see, speak to and look up to.
