Ms. Britt, Founder and Lead Experience Curator 

Hi and welcome to PEARLS! I  am Brittney Alexandria Smith, Founder of Positively Empowering and Restoring Ladies Self-Esteem, Inc. We are excited to continue to impact the lives of young girls, primarily, in the city of Cleveland and neighboring areas. As a young woman from the city, it is my mission to provide experiences to help people connect and live authentically and unapologetically. I am a community connector, youth advocate, community developer, and mentor.  In my spare time, I love volunteering, running and spending time with family and my sorority sisters of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc.  We are fortunate to have create a space where young girls can just BE. Welcome to the PEARLS experience!
