YLNO...WHEN YOU'RE A NEW PARENT
Brieanna Lightfoot Smith is a Jesus lover, author, business owner and Founder of Black Girls with Purpose - a community creating spaces for women of color to connect. She has encouraged over 1000 women and teens over the course of her career and used her experience in the New Orleans education system to design a workshop style curriculum that covers topics such as identity, healthy self-esteem, time management, and goal-setting.
In the fall of 2018 Brie launched the Black Girls with Purpose podcast which airs weekly and has over 19,000 streams. Her audience spans across the United States and internationally. After battling against suicidal thoughts as a teenager, Brie emerged as a twenty-something with a story to tell. She has now dedicated her life to helping women build a strong sense of community. When she’s not writing or teaching women about purpose and identity you can find Brie spending time with her family or working on programming for her nonprofit Unity Queens.
