Description

Whats Buzzing is:

Handling Risky Business is proud to present Girl B You: An outreach program geared towards helping girls become their greatest version of themselves today. We are excited to provide a safe environment where girls ages 10-17 can participate in several activities to help identify their true potential. Handling Risky Business, Inc. is a non-profit organization created to provide direction for at-risk youth with an emphasis on enhancing financial, entrepreneurial, social and educational skills. Our organization is focused on educating, empowering, developing communication skills with a strong emphasis on self-respect. Making a 360-degree investment in our at-risk youth by educating and empowering our future leaders of the world. We are 501c3 accredited and have been helping improve our community since 2007.


Girl B You workshops are discussion/activity based sessions presented in a peaceful non-classroom setting. We are geared to addressing the challenges that our young girls are facing in a tough world that we all live in. They must learn just how powerful their sting is. These workshops will help our girls put a positive sting back into the community and their future. Girl B You will be offered to schools and community outreach efforts throughout the year in Broward and Dade County. Our workshops are for girls ages 10-17, and we have special sessions for parents to attend as well.


Girl B You will allow a safe, girl zone atmosphere where girls can feel free to discuss concerns that may be too difficult to talk about with parents or friends. We will also empower a self-discovery of becoming your greatest version. Programs will cover various topics and a beginning and ending assessment will be given to all participants to rate the impact of the program.


I have two wonderful ladies donating their time as guest speakers to our kickoff event.

First we have Shawntrell Hudson, an author, entrepreneur and business owner. She is 33-years-old, and a proud mother of 5 beautiful children. I was born and raised in Miami, Fl.

Even as a child, I knew that owning my own business was a goal. At the ripe age of 28, I had acquired a tax firm, Shawntrell’s Tax Services Inc. From there, I took to the necessary steps to securing a full-service daycare center that I am, currently the founder and CEO of. Little Starz Academy LLC derived from my passion I carried for young children and early childhood education.

In addition, I am also the founder of Sister2Sister Empowers, an organization where I work with women who have been victims of domestic violence or any abuse for that matter. I was inspired to start this organization because I found myself trapped in a abusive relationship at a point in my life. It wasn’t easy to go through it and make it out, but I’m thankful I did. I'm aware that every women isn’t so lucky or as brave as I was, which was the reason I decided to tell my story.

Second we have Aqua, the owner of Bohemichic a local boutique right here in Broward County who is going to provide us with the knowledge of balance and energy and understanding the ability to identify self.

Special thank you to both of these ladies for their commitment to Girl Bee You.
