During her experience as a Social Worker, Shanita noticed a common thread amongst her female clients. All these young women came from under-resourced families and communities, but possessed million dollar ideas. Sadly, none of these young women believed in themselves and would tell Shanita:

"No, I couldn't ever accomplish that."

"No, I don't qualify."

"No, I didn't pass the exam. Maybe this is not for me."

Shanita would use therapeutic tactics to motivate a young lady to pursue her professional dreams, but fear and lack of exposure tended to prevail. Yes, M.I.S.S. Inc. was created to motivate and support young women during their high school career by exposing them to higher education and high earning professionals. As a result of this positive youth development, young women will learn to say "YES" as they discover their God given gifts.

"No one in my family taught me how to dream, let alone pick a future career. As a young professional it is important to know who you are, know your worth, and choose a job that will empty you and then fill you up again."
