More about the Virago Association (from the website):
The Virago Association was created by two women in search of a support system after being laid off from their jobs. These two young African-American women were single mothers from a low socio-economic status with big dreams. They came together hoping, praying and searching for the same things; a solid support system, guidance, and to have control over their future. What these women wanted more than anything was to never be in this predicament again…
After sharing their circumstances with one another, the two women decided to not waste any more time and to start working on whatever it took to make their dreams come true. They joined different networking groups and attempted to connect with other like-minded women to give them the tools, skills and knowledge they were seeking to turn their lives around. Unfortunately, through their search they couldn’t find exactly what they were looking for…
Ta’Quonna, Founder-President; is known for her skills and abilities to think “outside of the box” when it comes to getting things done. She has a Master’s in Social Work, and values empowering women to be “go-getters” even when the odds seem to be against them.
Tyronica, Founder-Vice President, is known for her skills using visuals in the form of social media ads when it comes to relaying information. She has over a decade worth of experience in various customer service industries and her life’s mission is to give others the confidence to live their lives on their own terms with the freedom they desire.
The next turn of events was when they decided to create an opportunity of support and community not just for themselves but for other women like them. On October 29, 2019 this was the evening the two ladies utilized various virtual tools to brainstorm, develop, and implement a plan into existence; The Virago Association. It wasn’t until March 8th, 2020 (National Women’s Day) the women landed on their official name, their amazing logo, a website, and had their first launch! Within the first few months The Virago Association had its first few members and the founders quickly decided to switch gears and establish The Virago Association as a legal entity.
The Virago Association will always be a place of community, belonging, and women supporting other women in achieving their goals. As the world around them continues to promote change, bring forth successes and even adversity The Virago Women will continue to evolve. These long lasting relationships will be sustained by the values, mission, and vision of The Virago Association.
