Wansheba Lawal-Founder/Executive Director 

Mrs. Lawal was born and raised in Milwaukee. As a child, Wansheba participated in activities at both Northcott Neighborhood House and Career Youth Development. She believes it made all the difference in keeping her out of trouble and preventing her from becoming a teen mother. She graduated from Riverside University High School. She later attended the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff where she majored in Dietetics. After returning to her native Milwaukee, she enrolled at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee where she received both a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree in Education. Ms. Ware is a former middle school teacher and enjoys working with youth. It is her passion to help other girls achieve their dreams.
