Unlike most scholarships, the L.A.C.E project is more like a family. Even after I received the scholarship they have continued to keep in touch with me. They’ve helped me step out of my comfort zone by inviting me to social events. Attending these events have helped me gain the confidence I needed to pursue the goals I set for myself that I would otherwise not have the drive to do so. They ensured that I stayed on track with my career as a full-time student while working part-time. The L.A.C.E project has guided me, uplifted me, and sent me on a journey for greatness. – Malynta Anthony

My name is Silver Koen and I met Arkeisha Cox in 2016, through a mutual friend. And we instantly clicked like we had been friends forever! It was refreshing to meet a young black professional woman like myself that had similar morals & goals. So we often met for lunch & dinner conversing about life and our goals to uplift young black women and even start businesses. I am so grateful to have such an amazing friend that you can not only laugh, cry with but also inspire you to do better in life. Thank you Arkeisha Cox & I look forward to many more years of friendship and possible business partners. – Silver Koen

Mrs.Cox has been a great inspiration & motivator to me. She has showed me that as a black woman, you can be successful. I don’t have to be the product of a stereotype, I can be more. The L.A.C.E Project has allowed me to be introduced to many independent & successful black businesswomen. I have learned so much from Mrs. Cox and she has always supported me in everything I do. I am a proud scholarship recipient of the L.A.C.E project. – Aeriana Holifield
