Elaine Bryant – Founder of Caring and Sharing, Inc

elaine bryantPLWG Network : Ms. Elaine please tell us a little about yourself

Ms. Elaine Bryant :  I was born into a two parent home with 14 brothers and sisters.  I am the 13th child and learned at an early age the meaning of sharing and caring.  Due to a shortage of jobs, my parents migrated from the South to the north in search of better job opportunities. My mother was a stay at home mom.  I remember as a child always coming home from school to a mom and a meal.  My father was a hard working man who worked in the steel foundry. He also owned and operated his own trucking business.  His entrepreneur spirit was passed on to many of his children. Encouragement is my passion, because I know it makes a difference for me! I believe if we could learn to say encouraging words to each other, we could change the world one person at a time.

PLWG Network : What is Caring and Sharing, Inc.?

Ms. Elaine Bryant : Caring & Sharing teaches young girls (ages 10-17) that being a lady never goes out of style. This we achieve CS-Logo-Transparent-3 -twitterthrough our signature Stir It Up Girls program. Our aim is to ‘stir up’ their God given gifts and talents, teach them the importance of loving who they are and working to build their confidence.

PLWG Network : Please share with us the inspiration behind Caring and Sharing, Inc.

Ms. Elaine Bryant :  What inspired me to start Caring & Sharing was my own lack of direction during my early adolescent years. I did not truly find my way until later in life. I believe it is crucial for one to have guided direction early in life. It can make a big difference.

PLWG Network :  What advice do you have for young African American/Black Girls?

Ms. Elaine Bryant :  The most important and powerful piece of information you can possess is a sense of history. I advise black girls to wonder about everything (How, Who, When, Where, Why, What). To visualize your future and arm yourself with as much information as you can.
