Meet Kalimba

Kalimba grew up in small town Nebraska and family is everything to her.  She’s biracial, but a Black woman first and foremost.  She draws strength from the women in her life and hopes to inspire any little girl who grew up thinking she’s not enough to accomplish life’s “difficult things”.

“The lotus flower is a reminder of the beauty that comes from change, the magic that a new beginning brings and the seed of potential that’s buried in the most unlikely places.”

– Jennifer Williamson
