Monique from Bronx, New York

I'm a mom and an entrepreneur. I need to register my business to get started.

As a survivor of domestic violence & the foster care system, I understand the challenges young people face. I want to be a model for how to overcome.

My need and situation

I am a hard-working single mom, entrepreneur, and full-time college student. My son, my family and my passion for helping today’s youth provide me with the motivation I need to keep striving for the absolute best.

My goal to to expand my company Within Myself all across the nation. Within Myself is a company that will allow me to teach youth, and empower youth to become self-aware. With over 16-year worth of experience, I have hosted several conferences, and other successful events that have had an outcome of over 100 youth.

I need assistance with registering my business as a legal business. Currently, I have registered with LegalZoom, however I need financial assistance with the expenses. This includes certifications, marketing, travel expenses, and other supplies for the company.

Meeting this need will help me because I am very familiar with being a young person searching for support and guidance. As a survivor of domestic violence and the foster care system, I understand the challenges that our youth face today.
