Tell us your story? 

My name is Shaneisha Dodson. I was born and raised in Arkansas by a single mother who instilled in me the value of hard work. I watched her work two jobs most of my life. Therefore, I always pushed myself to the limit. I ended up being the first person in my family to graduate from college. I went on to earn a B.A. in psychology, M.A. in counseling, and an Ed.S in education. Education is important to me. Therefore, I offer an annual $500 scholarship to a deserving high school or current college student. It’s my way of giving back to my community. At age 28, I began to earn a six-figure income. However, I knew it was a higher calling on my life. Therefore, I used my full time income to fund my passion. In 2015, I walked away from my six-figure income to pursue my God-given purpose in the arts. I felt that if I was going to put my all into something, it should be something that God called me to do. I experienced success and failures, but I refused to give up. I know that my work is making an impact on the world. Black Girlz Productions is my outlet. My company allows me to spread the word of God while entertaining people and bringing awareness to social issues.
