LaKena Dunham is the founder of Hewalenamo Girls, Inc., a non-profit organization providing financial assistance for educational purposes to girls from impoverished families in developing countries. An international speaker, best-selling author and legacy coach, LaKena wants every woman to live courageously and confidently, going after the dreams that God places in each of our hearts. She has been recognized for her efforts to leave an indelible mark on girls and women around the world and resides near Dallas, Texas with her husband and three children.

IF YOU’VE EVER FELT LIKE IT WAS TOO TERRIFYING TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP, THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.

In this episode, LaKena shares her God-shaped dream to make a difference in girls’ access to education in Ghana, Africa. She talks about starting a nonprofit for this purpose, when she had no idea what she was doing. She shares some of the daily habits that keep her connected to God, and she challenges us to push forward, despite our fear, to pursue our dreams.
