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).

She says:

“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.”

 

Kappa Upsilon Eta Eta Nu represents the QUEEN in every woman. We wear our CROWNS proudly.


Kappa Upsilon Eta Eta Nu would like to welcome Jerisha “JC” Cooper. Jerisha hopes to help inform and motivate women to see the enlightenment in joining Kappa Upsilon Eta Eta Nu, so that WE may grow stronger, think wiser, and take on the important things in life. She says:

“I want to see young women dancing with and for a purpose. using their body as a powerful inspiring weapon more so than a handy tool. I want to see us think for our selves and not from everyone else point of view. I want to see us rise up against Jealousy, hatred, and low self esteem. I want to see the Queen in us!”
