Alpha Female League, Inc. [the Alpha Leagues] is not the first organization Barbara has founded. Previously, Barbara created the Texas Hurricanes Basketball Club, one of the 1st women owned men’s basketball team for the ABA, professional basketball league. Raised in Kansas, Barbara lived with her biological mother until age 9 and then became a ward of the state until aging out. Although living and being away from her biological siblings and childhood friends, she found a way to cope through after school sports and activities.
After high school, Barbara had an opportunity to attend college, but choose motherhood. She was a single mother of 4 daughters and 1 son, and after getting them through school, decided to return to school and got her degree in Criminal Justice. Although her education is in criminal justice, her passion and path lead her to being a leader for young women and young minorities.
Being a single mother and raising 4 beautiful young ladies, Barbara’s focus is completely on guiding young girls to becoming strong women and grooming young boys to becoming successful leaders. Her passion for youth development over the past 20 years has led her to create Alpha Female League, Inc. that not only allows for helping youths develop social skills, but to develop leadership skills, guide them on their path to higher education, future career goals and equip them with the knowledge for life.
Alpha Female League is now offered in Dallas, where it all began and Houston. It is currently registering youths in Garland ISD, Richardson ISD, Houston ISD, Spring ISD, Humble ISD and Garland Recreation Center. AFL will be speaking at a number of schools and making plans to host various speaking and networking events. Barbara has written a letter to the White House about her ambition for the youths and have gotten a letter back with positive feedback from President Barack Obama.
