Historically and currently, we as Black women are constantly pouring into others; our partners, our children, our co-workers and our community at-large. Mo Better WCF was conceived as a response to the dire need for us as Black women to have a safe and affirming space to replenish what has been given and often taken away. For our own well being and survival, it is crucial that we take the needed time to Relax, Reflect and Refill. Then and only then will we have the capacity to fulfill our own unique destinies and positively impact the destinies of others.
My name is Aasha. My name means life in Swahili and I believe I bring a lot of life and passion into the world. I am originally from NE Portland and Black girl magic to the core. I am a youth worker with a Psychology major background and I am currently pursuing a masters in social work. I am a fierce advocate of mentorship, mental health and creative arts. I believe my calling in life is providing friendship and being a support system to whoever is in need.
My name is Darcell. I am originally from Portland, but my family migrated from Arkansas. I have a B.A. in journalism, a masters in social work and a certificate in school counseling. I have worked with all ages (infants to seniors) and I’ve worked in various settings (schools, child welfare, community health, etc.), but my focus remains on the concerns and needs of the Black Community. My goal and purpose is to let my light shine and to bring some clarity, peace and joy to this world that we live in.
