Donysha Givens-Knight

Hi, My name is Donysha Givens-Knight. I am an University Registrar  and an Advocate for XtraOrdinary Ladies. Mentoring is important to me because  I want to help cultivate self-assured and confident young ladies. To empower them and validate their feelings, dreams, and goals by being confidante, a sounding board, someone they can look up to and trust that someone has their back.

Hi my name Wendy Horton I am a Corporate Analyst and a mentor for XtraOrdinary Ladies. Mentoring is important to me because I feel young girls should have a safe space where they can be transparent, receive Godly advice that helps them make wise decisions whilst building their confidence and motivating them to reach their goals as they navigate to adulthood.

Kalynn Jones

Hi my name is Kalynn Jones I am a Mental Health Director for Pasco County Schools Head-Start I am also an advocate for XtraOrdinary Ladies for our Tampa Chapter. Mentoring is important to me because I was able to see women who look like me, so serving as tangible evidence that a Black girl from the south Florida could become anything she wanted to be. I hope to teach them how to overcome the struggles of being a Black girl at a predominantly white institution. Provide real advice on how to navigate a career where there will be very few people who look like them. Also to provide a strong support system and held me accountable so hopefully these young ladies will leave XOL, I am not confident that I would be able to say that, although the odds were against me.

My name is Marcella Moss-Mapp I am an advocate for XtraOrdinary Ladies. We work with the ladies on a one on one bases when they are working to overcome life challenges. Mentoring is important to me because growing up I was fortunate enough to have many woman poor into me. Working with organizations such as XOL give me the opportunity to pay it forward. I am the CEO of Luminous Life Consulting and Coaching.

Jamila Williams

Hi! My name is Jamila Williams, I’m an attorney and a mentor for XtraOrdinary Ladies. Mentoring is important to me because I believe it is our responsibility to continually pour back into our young women. it is important for them to see strong women from all walks of life to instill in them that anything is possible. 

My name is Maya and I mentor the XtraOrdinary Ladies Minis’ Group (11 years old and under). I love the fact that I can be an inspiration to the young ladies, because I did not have a mentor to confide in while growing up. I am an educator for M-DCPS; working with the youth is my livelihood and something that I am truly passionate about. My plan is for the girls to be encouraged/empowered in all that they do.
