“The Princess Within
Shirley Nelson is truly a woman after God’s own heart. Her relentless compassion, sincerity, and commitment to empowering girls is a valued treasure. Her zeal for creating a safe and a sacred space for girls to grow, learn, explore their greatness, unveil their identity and to have their self-esteem fostered is indescribable.
Once Shirley discovered that nurturing and teaching children came very natural to her, she made a promise to herself to always work to make an impact of the lives of young girls who crossed her path. Shirley’s background in Early Childhood Education & Development afforded her an opportunity to serve as an amazing trustworthy resource and childcare provider in her community. Shirley is the CEO/Founder of a quality and affordable Early Learning Center in her neighborhood.
Working with children is one of Shirley’s most fulfilling and greatest rewards in life! Her work effort and selfless efforts to positively impact the lives of young girls is well respected and most admired.
Shirley’s commitment for the second half of her life is to be intentional in her efforts to pour back into the lives of young girls, to teach them about their purpose and to help them give birth to the greatness that lies within.
Shirley takes great pride in serving as the leader for the DMV Princess Within Chapter. She understands firsthand the importance of creating a safe space to mentor, empower and train up our next generation of young women in an effort to help them learn the value of loving themselves, overcoming adversities and making their dreams a reality.
Shirley resides in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area with her amazingly wonderful husband. Shirley and her husband are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters and the grandparents of three grandchildren.
