We present to you our first ever co-curated GeenieBox - the Mother/Daughter MomMentorship Box! The month of May continues April's moment of graduations and new beginnings and surfaces a celebration of mothering. What better way to express this month than a box that highlights the unique role of the "Mom-mentor;" we tapped our CEO, Chana Ginelle Ewing and her life-long Geenie and mother, Pamela Ewing to share their story.

We're so excited to get personal with members this month - starting with this beautiful exchange between the two Ewing women on the value of mentorship in their Mother/Daughter relationship.


I have learned there is no road map or set of rules to follow and with each age from newborn to adulthood, I was always thankful for you and how much my life and worldview expanded. I was a young woman when you were born but the love I felt the moment I saw you, can't be explained. To this day I am still learning and being mindful that you are an adult but still need me very much in your life. If I learned one true thing, it's that raising an African-American woman is not an easy task but I would not trade-in for a life without you in it.


Watching 60 Minutes as a child, learning Kwanzaa principles and playing drums in pre-school, as an only child living very close to my first cousins, aunts and Grandmother, hearing your infectious laugh and watching you charm strangers, impacted me immeasurably. The world you created for me and exposed me to, and the lens in which you viewed it, has nurtured my appreciation for our culture, and my work to tell our stories. I'm incredibly lucky to have been born to a proud, smart, and loving Black woman. Thank you for your continued guidance, thank you for your genius, Mother Dear.
