She's Pretty Smart™: Nikita Mitchell

For the longest women and girls have had to convince society that we CAN be both intelligent and beautiful.
That is exactly why The She is Me Program, Inc™ has launched the Pretty Smart Campaign™.

Meet Nikita Mitchell, she's "Pretty Smart"!

She is Me: Where did you go to college, and what did you get your degree in.
Nikita: I went to Howard University and earned a Bachelor’s in Business Administration (BBA) in International Business and Finance.

She is Me: What type of work do you do?
Nikita: I currently work as a management consultant for a large professional services organization, providing strategic and operational advice to federal agencies. Basically, when the government needs help running a program, improving operations, etc. my organization will provide the expertise.

She is Me: Do you plan on returning to school to further your education?
Nikita: I do! I plan on taking my GRE this fall with the goal of going into grad school in Fall of 2011 or 2012. I’m not 100% positive what programs I want to pursue, but I may likely go to school for my Masters in Public Administration. We’ll see…

She is Me: What do you think make young women "Pretty Smart"?
Nikita: “Pretty Smart” women are confident women who are able to balance the joys in life with the responsibilities. These young intelligent women radiate beauty from within and allow their light to shine. Their self-awareness allows them to be in tune with themselves while inspiring others around them to achieve greatness. A “pretty smart” woman or girl is a force to be reckoned with.
