Theresa started Blessed Brilliant Beautiful as a platform to engage and inspire young women to live their lives to the fullest. She has been so inspired by the great women in her life such as her grandmothers and amazing mom, that she felt that it was important for every girl, regardless of finances or socioeconomics, to have. Through writing about her personal life experiences in her blog, she hopes to make a difference in the lives as young women and encourage them to be blessed, brilliant, and beautiful.
