NONPROFIT OF THE MONTH The SmahrtGirl Foundation Imagine a little girl from a tiny Texas town of 200 people growing up to handle $60 million dollar deals, heading one of the fastest growing womanowned technology firms in Texas, and recognized as a Pinnacle Award nominee, pivoting and reaching back to help the next little girl from a little town find the path to her dreams. That’s the story of Pamela Ellis and her non-profit organization, The Smahrt Girl Foundation which was born out of her passion for teaching and mentoring. She believes the foundation will serve as a bridge to education, exposure and experiences that will help make young girls’ dreams come true.

“Inside, The Smahrt Girl is frustrated with her surroundings and wants to make a change, but lacks the proper access, direction and guidance,” said Pamela. “You can call the foundation, a consortium of Godmothers. We are here to help them develop their blueprint for building a successful life! If we are truly successful, we will have also instilled in the girls the ‘pay it forward’ concept.”

While Pamela is recognized as a thoughtleader in her industry, her journey has been challenging and inspiring. She remembers a pivotal point in her life when she left the small town of Alleyton and moved to live with her father in California at 12 years old.

May Election The Pathw Democratic Fort Bend

Last November, we all worked extremely hard to get President Barack Obama re-elected. In fact, President Obama received over 100,000 votes in Fort Bend, and carried Missouri City by well over 60%. It was the first time that a Democratic candidate received more than 100,000 votes in Fort Bend County.

Abidemi Olowonira was born in Ibadan, Nigeria February 25, 1983. He contracted Polio at the age of one while his parents were in the United States pursuing their higher studies, so his grandmother raised him in Lagos through his adolescent and teenage years. She was a pottery maker and had a great influence on Abidemi. In 2002, he relocated to Houston, Texas. Upon his arrival in Houston, Abidemi enrolled into the John T. Biggers School of Art at Texas Southern University where he began to discover his innate talents as an artist. Focusing on life drawing and painting, he studied under Harvey L. Johnson, Leamon Green, Jesse Sifuentes, Alvia Wardlaw, Sarah Trotty, among others. Having the opportunity to study under renowned art professors, Abidemi was reintroduced to his African culture through the lens of artistic mentors who helped to understand his connection on a more academic level, an experience that he had never had before. This background birthed the development of AbidemiĂ­s unique, expressive style creating work that he describes as storytelling. ABIDEMI ART STUDIO www.abidemiartgallery.com

Ben Hall


COPYCAT Copycat

Is Parker Copying Ben Hall Over the last few months, Iíve had the opportunity to hear Ben Hall speak about his vision for Houston. Frankly, I did not know what to expect when I was first invited by a friend one of his “meet and greet” sessions. My friend told me to expect some really creative and forward-thinking ideas since he had heard Hall speak at another event. We arrived early, and a few gatherers were already waiting. Hall arrived about 10 minutes later and mingled with the crowd. He had a surprisingly natural way about him as he mingled in the crowd. I did not expect this from a firsttime candidate. In fact, when he greeted me (a total stranger), I felt as though we had known each other for awhile. After several minutes of greeting the crowd, Hall was introduced by his wife--a beautiful young lady who said they had been married for 32 years. I was surprised because they looked young for that length of marriage. Anyway, Hall next took the floor and began talking about his plan for Houston. With ease he outlined his concept of the “doughnut effectî in Houston where people

are choosing to live outside the city limits while coming into the city to work. This gives them the benefits of Houston without sharing the property tax burdens to fund city services. He suggested that the present mayor’s approach to generating city revenues by raising city fees fosters this type of ìdoughnut effect.î

Vision The Woman’s Earth aims to empower women by challenging them through our values to rise above any internal road blocks that would keep them from fulfilling their purpose by encouraging the nurturing of self both physically and spiritually.

About The Woman’s Earth Founder & Owner JeneÈ Christell Pierre JeneÈ discovered her daily purpose is to inspire the lives of fellow women by sharing her story and creating a platform for other inspiring stories to also be shared. Through her journey she learned that she was just getting along with education, work, career, and tending to her personal and professional relationships but was not completely fulfilled. She accepted the fundamental truth that your happiness is up to you. By being open to her personal prayer to be completely stripped of who she thought she was and what she thought she wanted, she exposed the lack of nurturing herself both physically and spiritually caused many

internal road blocks to getting to her space of true happiness. Now, through The Womanís Earth interactive and intimate sessions, she links the nurturing of physical self to spiritual self incorporating fun, healing truth. In her words, ìHappiness is a space you have an opportunity to createÖmoment by moment. Dance with all of the change that comes your way ñ even if itís not your favorite song. Donít forget your favorite songs are always in rotation and there is enough music in the world to always discover new favoritesî. JeneÈ is a native Houstonian and daughter of Ora and Christine Pierre. She has a B.S. in Psychology, Masterís in Public

Administration, and is a certified mediator. JeneÈ is a community advocate for young girls and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She is a certified human resources practitioner with 10 years of experience in non profit and for profit administration. JeneÈ has facilitated The Womanís Earth values for herself and women in her life as long as she can remember in informal and formal settings. With the assistance of her interactions with dear sister friends, mentors, students, and teachers throughout her experiences she now has a definition to share and inspire while looking forward to its evolution.
