Living RESILIENT

Black, Vibrant, and Free-spirited. Embodied by determination and impulsivity. Kennesha Wood’s conquered her road to success by the act of resilience.

Her Story

Raised in a single-parent home, she is a first-generation master’s Graduate. Her character and lived experiences challenged her to resist the odds against her. At an early age, Kennesha began to set goals and noticed she became dedicated to executing them in a timely manner. Even more, she began to see several sheets of paper laying around that read “to-do list” with visible marks that depicted she had executed the goals. As Kennesha started to pursue her bachelor’s degree, she found herself with many obligations: academic responsibilities, sorority business, family duties, personal and professional commitments, and maintaining healthy relationships. All while enrolled as a full-time student and employee who maintained self-care and stability. Keeping up with all her tasks by remaining organized became her priority but also her path to success. Kennesha is eager to introduce what she considers one of her secrets to success, an act of resilience.

Kennesha’s educational background, dedication to youth, adults, and families who are oppressed, her perseverance, and visible paths to success caused individuals to seek career-driven and personal advice from her. In the Resilience Planner, Kennesha provided an inclusive space for Black, minoritized, and marginalized identities to practice acts of resilience by living a purposeful life.
