I am so proud to have been named a 2012 Woman to Watch by MommyPerks.com.
The nomination entry: (Shay received multiple nominations but for the purpose of this post we are using just one of the nomination entries.)
“Shay is making a POSITIVE impact on the economic future of our society beginning with our youth who are our leaders and consumers of tomorrow! She does so with authenticity, passion, confidence, and purpose! I am inspired, excited and proud to watch Ms. Shay defy all of the odds of being a minority female who as a product of the foster care system! I’m SURE there are so many others who will too!”
Thank you to everyone that nominated me. Thank you to everyone that sent positive energy. Thank you for allowing me to do the work that I do in communities across the country.
