An Evening with Tracy Folorunsho-Barry
AWiLL would like to invite you to spend the evening listening to Tracy Folorunsho-Barry speak about the startup and expansion of the Gradual Rising of Women also known as G.R.O.W. An Edmonton based organization that seeks to educate and empower immigrant women. According to their mandate: “Women are seeds waiting to receive water in order to G.R.O.W”.
G.R.O.W.’s founder, Tracy Folorunsho-Barry moved to Canada from Nigeria by herself at the age of 17 and it was her experience that led to the launch of the initiative. She explains that the lack of support being in a new country and the pressure she faced to only aspire to motherhood showed her that this kind of community was lacking. After a decade of resilience, she was able to go university, launch her own business, raise 5 kids.
