Belizean set to receive Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award

By Celeste Chang: Who is Teresa Hernandez-Howe? She is a Belizean philanthropist and entrepreneur living in the US who is set to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award to be presented by the President of the United States of America.

She is the owner of Girls of Colour Take Over. The goal of her organization is to “empower girls of color to take over and excel in any industry they desire. Encouraging young girls of color to be fearless.” Howe also owns a skin care brand selling body oils, body butters and body oil spray. Hernandez-Howe does mentoring for pageants with young Belizean girls.  

She is a native of Dangriga and has stated that her passion for mentoring and entrepreneurship has not only changed her life, but the lives of others. She has mentored girls from the Philippines, Thailand, and Ghana among others. She was recently the guest speaker for Ecumenical High School’s graduation ceremony. She told the media in a News 5 interview “you know, if you don’t remember my name, at least, I want you to remember this lady, that changed my life where she, she mentored me and she, you know, empowered me to, to move forward and to create something of my own, of, create a legacy for themselves.”

Jaeann Laurie, one of the girls mentored by Hernandez-Howe, said: “First, I wanted to be a dentist and work for somebody else, but when I first met Miss Teresa, she asked me what I wanted to be and I told her I wanted to be a dentist. And when I met her again, she said she had her own business, her own skincare business and Girls of Color Taking Over. I told her I want to be an entrepreneur and have my own dental business. She inspired me to be an entrepreneur. She told me to do what I want to do and I can be whoever, wherever I want to be.” 

Teresa Hernandez-Howe mentioned that she was nominated and awarded for being one of the top 10 people in Tampa to know in business. She’s also won an award for being a She-E-O girl boss. She said receiving the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award is even more special is because she is a girl from Griga, from Belize and it just goes to show that if she can do it, anyone else can receive something like this.
