Calling all black girls!
If you’re a high schooler, college student or 20 something who has ever wondered “What on Earth am I here for?” you’ve come to the right place.
Hi I’m Brie, the Executive Director of Black Girls with Purpose and I’m so glad you’re here. You are significant. Your life has meaning and by walking in your purpose you can forever change history.
Helping you understand that is why Black Girls with Purpose exists. We’re dedicated to guiding you through the discovery of why you’ve been placed on this planet. Outside of good old fashioned words of encouragement, our mentorship, books, workshops and other fun events are all designed to help you live with intention and without regrets.
I have to personally thank Brie. My goal setting hasn’t been at its best due to my laziness but after [her goal setting workshop] no matter how tired I get, I’ve decided to push myself to the fullest.

By living a life of purpose, you can’t help but to enhance the world around you through your gifts, talents and passions.
How do I know this? Because I lived it.
Before discovering my purpose, I didn’t just wonder why I existed. I doubted God’s intentions for my life, suffered from thoughts of suicide and was ready to simply put an end to all my “what if?” questions. I knew that people loved me but I had problems with my identity and worth. Combine that with low self-esteem and no clear sense of direction or belief in destiny. Ultimately, you were left with a girl who felt like the world would be better without me.
Then one day…
A guy I thought was pursuing me, called and shared his plans to date another young lady. This crushed me and from that moment on I vowed that I would no longer be anyone’s second choice. I heard God ask “are you ready for me to show you who you are?” And with a passionate yes, I stepped out on faith. Having Him as the core of my identity and seeing myself through His eyes changed everything.
Fast forward seven years of being second best and that time would lead to my writing of The Black Girl’s Guide to Living on Purpose, the inspiration behind all we’re doing.
Regardless of age, race or gender, this book will compel you to examine your own life closer. It will challenge you to walk boldly in your GOD-given purpose. You will refer to “The Black Girl’s Guide to Living on Purpose” again and again. Brie Daniels has wonderfully written a guide book, a how-to book, a reference book for ALL who aspire to living a life that brings honor and glory to GOD.

Since surviving my season of overwhelm and learning to live with intention, I’ve developed a life I love and want to help other young women like you experience that same feeling.
Did you know?
Suicide is the leading cause of death amongst individuals ages 10-24. I personally attribute that to lack of clarity, hope and direction.
7 in 10 young women believe that they are not good enough or don’t measure up in some way, including their looks, performance in school and relationships with friends and family members.
75% of young women with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating. This compares to 25% of girls with high self-esteem.
30% of teen girls say they feel misunderstood and purposeless.
Here at BGWP, we’re looking to shatter those statistics. We talk about our fears, time management, our purpose (of course), relationships, faith and a lot of other topics written with young women in mind. You can check out our events, find inspiration and read blog posts to your heart’s content. But don’t just take my word for it, browse around, stay a while, join our email list black girl with purpose!
