Kappa Upsilon Eta Eta Nu was founded in 2016 by Rahziya Akeem with the hopes to dismantle the conception of competition within young Black women (Women of Color).
“I’ve battled with self-esteem and body image for majority of my life. I’ve suffered from name calling, rumors, depression both mild and sever, and I’ve struggled with not being pretty enough for years. This Queens movement is for my ladies. Constantly reminding these young girls that we are team and that we ALL go through this. I grew up not being able to talk to my parents or my friends about these issues. Kappa Upsilon Eta Eta Nu allows that opportunity for understanding and communication.”
