We’re almost through the month of January and with so much going on, adjusting to the new year, tackling goals and making changes in hopes to vibrate higher, I’m sure you’re just as mentally exhausted as the rest of us. If you’re looking for some motivation then you know that I’m your girl. 🙂 This week’s feature is on twenty-two year old Victoria Armstead, a Detroit native and the proud founder of I’m Somebody’s Good Thing.
Victoria has an online t-shirt line at www.imsgoodthing.com , where she also houses an online resale boutique. Aside from that, she’s a youth director, mentor and graphic designer. Check out her interview below as she shares her inspiration for getting started and where she plans to take her brand in the coming years.
AM:How did you come about doing what you do now and when was the passion for it born?
VA: There was a burden on my heart for the current and future generations of women. I knew that I needed to do something to help change what was happening because I was fed up with seeing women devalue themselves. After prayer and a conversation with my god sister, Dionna Jackson, I started the “I’m Somebody’s Good Thing” movement, in 2014.
AM: What are your plans going forward and how do you hope to impact society with your vision?
VA: This movement strives to teach and assure ladies of their value, worth, beauty, and treasure by causing them to understand that validation and self-esteem are not given by man, but by God. The basis and premises of this movement is Proverbs 18:22 where it says, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.” The reason this scripture was chosen is because while reading, I got a revelation. Many people know this scripture and quote it religiously, but I want to introduce you all to a deeper meaning. I want people to notice that it says that the man finds a good thing, and not that she becomes a good thing after she is sought out by a man. Women are indeed the treasure of endless value before the pursuit even begins. That’s why the scripture goes on to say that the man is granted God’s favor. This ONLY works if we actually WALK in it. I thinks it’s about time that women realize this about themselves. God has given me a charge to help my sisters understand this truth.
AM: What does Women Empowerment mean to you?
VA: Women’s empowerment is a great thing, but I am more concerned about women’s improvement.
AM: Where do you see yourself in five years?
VA: Hopefully, happily married, with a successful business, a vibrant & growing relationship with God.
AM: Name something that you’ve always wanted to do
VA: Have my own store!
