Hello, There Queens!!!! My name is Tanesha Renae, also known as T.Renae, and I am co-founder of Ladies & Co. I am a recent graduate from the illustrious Hampton University at the top of her class with highest honors, Summa Cum Laude. During my time at Hampton University, I became a 2015 Rhodes Scholarship Finalist, Educational Testing Service’s HBCU Presidential Scholar and a bunch of other nerdy things! As a military kid, I’m from everywhere, and nowhere at the same time. I love God so much, even though I fall short of His glory a lot.  I love to read, write, and knit, and sing, and learn, and do everything (well-rounded or nah?). I am currently obsessed with makeup, fashion, and shopping. I plan to continue my education with an eventual pursuit of a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and research interests in African American Community Mental Health and child trauma interventions in minority communities. I have a deep passion for sharing my world via videos (I just started a Youtube channel) and my blog. I love and want to share the stories of my life with the world. I’m low-key a boss – building my empire with a heart of gold and a smile.

[INACTIVE] Hey hey!! I’m Averi Simone, a GRADUATING SENIOR Psychology and Spanish dual major, Leadership Studies minor, as well as co-founder of Ladies and Company. I attend the beautiful Hampton University and would have it no other way. I am also spending a semester in Valencia Spain!! A little bit more about me, Jesus is my homie and my best friend, I want to be like him when I grow up. I am an only child, but you would never know it by looking my way. My favorite color is purple and my favorite animal is a Giraffe. I can’t read music, but I sing at the most random moments ever. I am corny and awkward, but I know how to embrace it. I plan on changing the world one day. Don’t be fooled I will leave my footprints in the sands of time. By the way, I love Rihanna’s swag and Beyonce’s sophistication. They are my girl crushes.

I am a student at my beautiful home by the sea, Hampton University, where I’m a Junior majoring in Psychology. Currently, I’m not 100% sure of my exact career but I know I want to touch, change and impact many lives on my path. I love to sing!!! Well, I’m no Whitney Houston but I’m pretty good, just don’t ask me to sing on the spot! I’m not “religious” but I love Jesus and I thank Him for loving me and guiding me.  I’m aware of many challenges that we face in the world and I want to help break through some of those challenges.  I’m a hardworking, focused, down to earth, adventurous, tell it like it is type of girl! I love to travel and you will find that I am involved in several activities and organization as I like to stay busy and continue to challenge myself.

[INACTIVE] Hi! I’m Heather Scriven. First and foremost I’m a daughter of God.   Faith is extremely important to me and my largest priorities are growing closer to God, becoming the woman that God has destined me to be, and being obedient to the calling on my life. After faith comes family. I love my family so much and we always have such great times together. I have two loving parents and a magnificent little sister. Friends are also pretty important as I’m beginning to learn. They aren’t just people to hang out with they are a support system and a reliable network. I love my friends dearly and I thank God for each and every one of them. When it comes to education I am a senior psychology major at Hampton University. I definitely value education. I believe that everyone should be granted the opportunity to become who God destined for them to be, for them to reach their full potential. And just me as a person? I am pretty laid back type of person, but I have a serious taste for adventure. I love travelling and exploring, and am a big fan of outdoor activities. And I love food – like love love love food. Often times my travelling is inspired solely by food. I love to cook and bake! I also enjoy movies a lot. I rarely watch tv, but my movie watching makes up for that. Ultimately I just want to live my life to the fullest, I want to experience all that is out there for me!

[INACTIVE] Hey, all! My name is Aliah Williamson and I am a second year Broadcast Journalism major at Hampton University from Sunny San Diego! Many people view me as just a happy-go-lucky, sweet girl. While this is true in most aspects, I have a very opinionated side. My views on relationships, sex, and life in general sometimes seem to go against the common grain because I have a very old-fashioned soul. I’m very grateful to now have an outlet where I can gracefully share my unpopular opinion because I know there has to be at least a few others out there who agree with me, or perhaps never thought of the other side of the situation. But everything I say is not law, just another thought and opinion floating out here in cyberspace. Thanks for reading!
