B.E.S.T. You, recently chartered on FAMU’s campus, is looking to introduce girls to the idea of sisterhood and to develop each girl to become a positive change agent of their generation.

B.E.S.T. You members were seen beautifully dressed and excited to connect with students in their B.E.S.T. You sweaters at their ‘Meet the Ladies’ event on the quad during their welcome week.

This is one of the many events that were hosted by the group in order to raise awareness for their organization and make an impact in their community. According to their Instagram, other events included their, Becoming the B.E.S.T. You, Spot a Sister raffle, and a karaoke night.

According to the B.E.S.T. You website, “Too many girls grow up thinking they are less than simply because of the color of their skin. Most girls who grow up in marginalized communities do not get the same resources as girls in more affluent communities.” This organization seeks to solve this by creating “long-lasting mentorship relationships, introduce girls to the idea of sisterhood, and present confidence-building workshops in order to break negative cycles allowing each girl to become positive change agents of their generation.”

This group wants to inspire girls of color through the triple aim of sisterhood, mentorship and confidence building. “We are building a team of inspiring college students who will provide a strong support system for each individual girl,” according to the group’s website.

B.E.S.T. You hopes to have built enough confidence in each girl so that they can advocate for themselves, go to college, and change the world if that’s what they want to do.

Kayla Randolph, a third-year professional MBA candidate and social media director of the FAMU chapter of B.E.S.T. You, was one of the students excited to represent the organization. Being a new organization on campus has not stopped them from making an impact.

“We mentor elementary students in order to teach them how to build the confidence needed to run a business and become a positive change agent and leader, a leader the world needs,” Randolph said.

Randolph enjoys being around the members of her organization. She credits the pillars of B.E.S.T. You, which are sisterhood, mentorship and confidence building.

“We love each other, we’re always hanging out and if you want to get mentoring and like young girls of color this would definitely be the program for you,” Randolph said.
