A Catalyst for a Brighter Future, Rameika Gibson’s Still That Girl
One of the greatest attributes of the unsung heroes and change agents that are a part of this campaign is the ability to effectively balance. Not only balancing the many components of their nonprofits and initiatives – but to balance their organization, and well – the rest of their life. no one truly knows the ups and the downs that come with balancing a specific nonprofit and a full-time job like the specific individual – but from the outside looking in Rameika Gibson balances here 9-to-5 as an IT Consultant and her 5-to-9 as the founder and CEO of Still That Girl, very well.
Still That Girl’s goal is to inspire women and girls to look beyond their past and believe in a bright future. Many don’t realize that Dallas is ranked within the top five cities in the country for human trafficking and homelessness. Through collaborations with other Dallas organizations, Still That Girl works to prevent these crimes from happening. In addition, the organization works to mentor, counsel and empower the women and young girls through these difficult experiences.
When asked what she admires about Rameika, Stephanie Brown, Engagement Specialist for Still That Girl, said, ”Rameika exudes grace and excellence in everything that she does. Most people dream about helping people “one day”, but it takes strength, intention, perseverance and follow-through to transform that dream into something functional and tangible. Starting and maintaining a nonprofit outside of the daily 9-5 grind is no small feat (especially when you’re consistently having to travel for work).”
