Kristen Harris is a Chicago native and joins the show today via Skype. This Cool Soror of Delta Sigma Theta grew up in environment plagued with poverty, violence and drugs but was determined to make a better life for herself. And Kristen carved her way one step at a time.
After receiving her civil engineering degree from Alabama A&M University, she returned to Chicago and worked in her field for nine years at the same time she launched an online shoe boutique. “Feet A Faith” would be the beginning of several business ventures for Kristen. The entrepreneurial bug struck and struck big again and again.
Kristen established Karizma’s Koncepts and Pizzazzed Plus but she has recently found her purpose to be fulfilled as a Women’s Empowerment Coach. Kristen subscribes to the notion that every woman is full of potential and purpose but many lack the knowledge on how to get everything out that is inside of them. She helps draw it out by equipping them with the tools they need to get unstuck. Kristen works as a figurative midwife, helping women realize that they are pregnant with purpose and push past their pain to deliver everything that God has promised them.
There are so many levels to Kristen and her life has been peeled and pruned with every one. Whether it was potentially facing 10 years after a run-in with the law in college or helping her mother heal from addiction, she continues to show that this life was not meant to defeat her. She is meant to win, “For she knows the reason why.”
