Trailblazing Paths with Ebony Dilworth
Ebony Dilworth is a Motherhood~Lifestyle~Career Blogger. She is empowering mammas to live and mother on their own terms with her Millennial Mamma community. Ebony created this space to connect with other moms who are raising children, not from any “mommy manual,” but who are learning as they go and loving it. Even with a huge focus on motherhood, the Millennial Mamma community is comprised of women with and without children. She is a woman who wants to live life to the fullest and works to create harmony between her personal and professional life. Many women think your life ends when you become a mom. Life has just begun darling! You can and shall have it all.
Through the Millennial Mamma platform, I share my experiences with marriage, motherhood, my career, business, social life, and most importantly self-care. It is my hope to inspire other mamma’s out there to enjoy their lives to the fullest. Mamma’s gotta have a life too!
She is also the founder of The Princess Foundation whose mission is to empower and support young women in urban communities to develop skills, effective communication, and dedication, which will prepare them to be of service to their community.
