I am super excited to write about this lady, whose achievement is astounding. She is a testimony that young people, more so, young black women are capable of being many things at the same time and be good at it too. Dr Roshawnna Novellus has earned the Young Leader Wall of Fame this week because she is an exemplar for young women everywhere.

Novellus is an enrolled agent that is federally licensed to represent and resolve high-level tax disputes. She is also a  world traveler who has journeyed to over 50 countries and 5 continents, and is certified in yoga philosophy and instruction in Thailand.

The most fascinating part of her story will be from an excerpt from Greg Hill:

“She received over $600,000 in scholarships. She bought her first house at 22 & a few years later obtained her doctorate in Systems Engineering from George Washington University. After working a few years, she decided to start her own business and move to Miami.
In less than 1 year she booked a one-way ticket back to Atlanta leaving everything behind. Fast forward a few years and now she is a successful finance entrepreneur, author, coach & angel investor.”

This is to motivate young girls out there; there is more to being pretty. We can add more acumen and be descrided as “beauty with brains”. Dr Roshawnna has been able to bridge the gaps and found the balance with work, finance, life and her goals. She is better known as The Wealthy Yogi because of her agility and foresight in science, entrepreneurship, fitness, travel, and creativity.

Reading through her profile online and asked myself; what is stopping you though!?

We are young, we are free and we are free to be anything we want to be. We can also use this opportunity to prove to the older generation that, although we are millennials, we are blessed to be able to be anything at any time, achieve so much at a young age, live our lives without boundaries and still impact and shape our society positively. Roshawnna’s story shows the extent to which education can propel women to achieve more and not be tagged as an accessory for the home.
