Michelle Blue had already drawn out the map of her life, but a map could not prepare her for the bumps in the road. Michelle shows us that we must have a clear vision to drive down the road to success.

Through their partnership with Sista Works, Bené has been able to provide girls in Ghana with the opportunity to continue their secondary education by sponsoring their tuition, books, supplies, uniforms and fees. Michelle is passionate about mentoring and speaking at local high schools and young groups sharing her entrepreneurial journey and encouraging youth to believe in their dreams. Michelle graduated from the University of Georgia in 2013, where she studied Business Marketing and Fashion Merchandising.
