“I started The Proverbs 31 Women’s Organization because I felt there was a need for an organization that supplied underserved young women with proper mentors to help lead and guide them through life.” – Crystal Ngumezi
Crystal Ngumezi is the CEO & Founder of The Proverbs 31 Women’s Organization. She has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Texas at San Antonio, and professional experience in engineering, logistics and operations management. She has worked in engineering and management positions for notable companies such as Pratt & Whitney, Dow Chemical Company and Union Pacific Railroad, and she currently owns her own consulting company for young entrepreneurs, Brand Your Biz, and online retail company for women, ShoppHer.
Crystal’s experience as a young minority woman, coming from an underserved community and advancing to a career in mechanical engineering, sparked the idea to create an organization that would offer underserved young women equal opportunity to pursue professional careers. She wanted to create an organization that would help disadvantaged young women receive free mentorship, gain exposure to STEM-related careers, and obtain professional etiquette training that would help them through school, encourage them to pursue college, and inspire them to pursue professional careers.
As the CEO & Founder of The Proverbs 31 Women’s Organization, Crystal leads and manages the organization’s Board of Directors and program operations to provide free mentorship and professional etiquette training classes to underserved young women across the state of Texas. She also uses her experience in technology to advance the organization’s philanthropic mission online through strategic branding, social media marketing, and website design.
The Proverbs 31 Women’s organization was founded and started by Crystal in Austin, TX on December 19, 2016 as a passion project and personal, divine assignment from God. To date, the organization has reached over 45+ female students who come from underserved communities, both in the Austin and Houston, TX area through P31 Academy and the P31 Mentorship Program.
