Gabrielle Union praises another important woman on her social media account. She always does this once a week – she uplifts black women who have achieved important things.
‘Today’s #WCW is the youngest-ever female stockbroker on Wall Street… the dynamic beauty @lasimmons. Lauren made history when she became the youngest full-time female trader on Wall Street at age 23. She’s also the second African American woman in the 226-year history of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to hold that title,’ Gabrielle began her post.
‘The world is about to get a treat because Lauren is going to be the face of a new digital series, Going Public – which will give diverse entrepreneurs a chance to win over investors and become a publicly-traded company. Lauren is the epitome of the full-package: beauty, brains, and kindness. I will be cheering you on over here! Let us lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there,’ Gabrielle captioned her post.
