Achieving Excellence Consulting, the new standard of business excellence
Feel Beautiful. Be Beautiful. Look Beautiful. Our next showcased Leaning EJ journey taker, La’Kia Young, knows the true need that exists for plus size women to feel and look beautiful. She spoke with Maudine and I about wanting to open Allau’Q Lingerie Boutique, a lingerie store for plus size women, giving them the choices and fit that creates the foundation of the their “beautiful.” She remembers the time when women were fitted for their clothing based on a woman’s needs and not just focused on a sale.
La’Kia has fought the odds of a criminal background, obtaining her Bachelor’s in Business Administration and is now working for the North Carolina chapter of the National Association of Social Workers. Having gone through programs like Dress for Success and Step Up Ministries, La’Kia understands what it means to have someone give back. She likewise, wants to give back by employing those that have the same criminal challenge as she.
La’Kia Young is no stranger to entrepreneurship. As a member of Phi Beta Lamda, she was a winner in a mini – Shark Tank. Competing with 9 other teams, her team won 1st place.
