The Original “Fabulous Female!”

The Original “Fabulous Female!”

Dr. JoAnn Ajayi-Scott

Working full-time and running Essence of a Lady, Inc., 501(c)3 nonprofit organization full-time is what JoAnn Ajayi-Scott was use to for over 23 years at the first annual Females are FABULOUS! Conference.  Julianna, JoAnn’s youngest daughter, had just graduated from college and Sholann, her oldest daughter was working for the nonprofit  as a Program Specialist for its YELL!Mentoring Program.  Both daughters had spent the past two months watching their mother coordinate a full conference with over 60 people.

The 2012 Females are FABULOUS Conference brought females of all ages together to be pampered, fed, and celebrated. JoAnn did not know she would be a part of the celebration.  After the amazing Fashion Show Luncheon, FAB Awards, and YELL! Awards were presented to the women and girls, Sholann and Julianna came on stage to present the “Fabulous Female” Award to Ms. Ajayi-Scott. She was totally SURPRISED and appreciative.

This year, we are celebrating 26 years of recruiting women to become philanthropists to help EDUCATE, MENTOR, and EMPOWER girls.  What better way to commemorate this accomplishment than to SPOTLIGHT 26 women on our websites, social media, and in A BOOK!

The Females are FABULOUS Anthology will do JUST that. Women will be selected based on distinct qualities of philanthropy, civic involvement, empowerment, and dedication to promoting the feminine agenda.

As CEO, Founder, and Visionary of Essence of a Lady, Inc and its two signature programs, Young Essence Ladies…Learning (YELL!) and Essence Ladies (E’Ladies Network), she wants other women to be recognized around the world for their efforts! YOU may be one of them!
