A Note from the Founder: March 2023

A Note from the Founder: March 2023

In the seventh grade, I played basketball. I averaged about 30 seconds of playing time the whole season and won the award for "Most Encouraging Team Member" at the end of the season. True story. 

While I’m not particularly good at playing them... I'm an avid sports fan. So it was a huge honor when the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) said they wanted to recognize Sainte Nèl at the Women's Empowerment Game. LAFC is the Major League Soccer cup champion! 

I’ve been an LAFC fan since before the team launched! In 2017, I attended a women in sports event hosted by the Club, where I had the honor of meeting soccer Legend and LAFC co-owner, Mia Hamm.

The Sainte Nèl team had an absolutely wonderful time meeting fans and passing out goodies. Thank you to LAFC for the work that they’re doing in our Los Angeles community. And thank you to BMO for being a supporter of women owned and Black owned businesses.
