"We’re here because we care about girls. We care about what they think. We care about what they think about themselves.
We care about what happens to them. We hope you do, too!"
Her Highness is a registered NC non-profit organization established to educate, empower, and elevate the young ladies of Columbus County. It was founded by Tatyana Faulk-Frink, student doctor and Columbus County native, and was incorporated in the state of North Carolina on March 13, 2015. It was based in the Columbus County, NC locale for six years from 2015-2021.
As of August 2021, the organization has relocated and will now be based in the NC Triad!
Her Highness is a mentorship organization based on education, empowerment, and elevation and designed to inspire and promote self-love, self-esteem, the development of healthy life choices, and sound decision- making skills. It is designed to use interactive educational segments and positive role models to attend to serious issues (educational attainment, health risks, socioeconomic status, and etc.) facing young women in Columbus County and surrounding areas.
During the summer, (August 7 - August 11, 2017), Her Highness, Inc. sponsored its 2nd Annual Summer Extravaganza, a week-long program for girls ages 13-18 in Columbus County. Using a mentorship system of young women mentors who are natives of Columbus County, Her Highness' Summer Extravaganza examined contemporary issues surrounding the girls of today; offered educational forums on SAT, scholarships, and college prep; discussed health issues pertinent to women, as well as addressed many other concerning subjects. We have since held 4 other Summer Extravaganza programs, College Resource fairs, Women in STEM/Medicine virtual event, Mother-daughter brunches, a Vision Board and networking brunch, nursing home and jail outreach, and more!
We also offer annual scholarships, the "I Am Royalty Scholarships" to help two graduating high school seniors in their financial endeavors, attending college each year. The 2023 scholarship cycle will open in January of 2023.
In all, we hope to change the status and make a difference in our North Carolina communities, starting with the future of tomorrow: the youth of today!
