Our Team


Meet the Founder

Ravin Joseph is an educator, mentor, community leader and business owner from the South Bronx. She earned her Masters of Arts in Criminal Justice from John Jay College of Criminal Justice.  As a community leader, and with the experience of working with high school scholars, Ravin realized the lack of confidence and civic engagement among young teens in her community and so developed a strong devotion to supporting and encouraging them to be their best selves. She decided to begin a nonprofit to empower young women in one of the most impoverished communities in America in hopes that one day these ladies will hold the torch as role models and community leaders passing it off to future generations.
