Fellow:Janeen P. Brown (2022)
My name is Janeen Brown, I am from Portsmouth, Virginia but currently reside in MD where I attend Bowie State University earning my bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a minor in Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship. I chose a major in business because I have a passion for uplifting my community through community development and financial literacy, While growing up I did not see many Black owned businesses, but I lived in a predominantly Black community. My goals are to educate and build the Black community the best way I can by creating avenues for African American younger generation to become entrepreneurs, get the highest paid jobs in their fields and facilitating the platform for legacy and generational wealth through the teaching of financial literacy. " Teamwork makes the Dream Work ! "
Thus far my greatest achievements would have to be being a mother and a wife, all while having my own businesses as a Virtual Assistant for several clients and running an e-commerce clothing shop. I am the secretary and an active member for the Student Parent Association at Bowie State University. I have achieved being on the dean's list each semester and will graduate with my bachelors in 2023 from Bowie State University.
