Portia Johnson

Growing up in a small, diverse town in West Tennessee has afforded Portia the opportunity to know and learn from many different cultures of girls experiencing the transition from childhood to adulthood. Her empathetic spirit and nature as a young child enabled her to operate the first “Girls Closet” at her elementary school. Here, she was able to see firsthand girls who were not able to “meet their needs” hygienically. This experience carried into her life as a mother of four children; two girls and two boys. She instilled in all her children with pride the spirit of helping those in need, without judgement of their situation, but as a vessel to improve their circumstance.
