The first in her family to graduate from college, Ty-Licia understands the importance of education as a tool for healing and liberation. Her advocacy has been recognized locally and nationally by BET, BLACK GIRLS ROCK! and Procter and Gamble’s My Black is Beautiful. Ty-Licia is a contributing writer for “Lean In For Graduates,” a best-selling practical guide to beginning a successful career by Sheryl Sandberg. She is also a noted speaker, sharing her experiences of women’s empowerment, problem-solving in education, and community building with a wide range of audiences.
