Empowering Youth & Building Leaders
Deanna Smith is the Director of Destined 2 WIN and looks to ensure that every girl who walks into the program is impacted to direct them towards their purpose in life. Smith was born and raised in Texas with aspirations of being an engineer who helped children with disabilities be more comfortable in the world around them. Through life's twists and turns, she entered corporate America, but her passion for impacting the lives of youth still burned strong. Today, she has more than 25 years of experience in corporate American, is now working in accounting, and assists with various start-up businesses. Deanna is a person who influences and champions being happy with yourself, and the talents and gifts are given to you. Being a dreamer is not a bad thing, "Smith" says, and with the right influence, guidance, and tools, every girl's dream can become a reality.
Empowering Youth/Building Leaders
Girls group mentoring programs celebrate individuality while providing safe spaces for girls and women to connect and share their voices and common experiences. When girls are given tools, space, and encouragement, they are empowered to develop their voices in their communities. Our mentoring programs create a supportive environment where girls can make connections that foster their strengths and support them through challenges. D2W also teaches our girls to serve within their community and give back to those less fortunate. We have guest speakers, business owners, and more to have a creative atmosphere where they can grow and tap into their future potential. Here are a few things additional things will we offer. Our goal is to be a place where when they go out into the world they have been offered the tools necessary to be successful.
