Ariel has always been a resilient, vocal, free spirit who is not afraid to profess her love for Christ.
This brilliant, University of Illinois- Urbana-Champaign graduate skipped law school to take the baton and support her mother in building Dunamis Woman Enterprise, LLC. She is the youngest daughter of their dynamic mother-daughter trio!
Shortly after college, Ariel reignited Dunamis Community Advocate Services, a non-profit founded by her mom. Within a short period of time, under her auspices, the organization has mentored over 500 students in the Chicago Public Schools. In addition, she birthed the Miss Dunamis Teen & Woman Pageant for young women and Real Awesome Men Showcase for young men.
Ariel is passionate about mentoring teens & coaching young millennial women on how to overcome social-emotional and mental issues as they understand their power & who they are as young warriors for Christ.
Whether she is spreading messages through her speaking platform “Hey Ari,” Dunamis Woman or Dunamis Community , Ariel has a heart for seeing the next generation seek spiritual growth and development for the betterment of mankind.
She is a daughter, sister, TT, friend, mentor, but most of all, she is a Dunamis Woman with so much compassion and love in her heart for God’s Kingdom & people.
My Why: “Dunamis” is more than just a term to me, it is a way of life & everything I do relies on the dunamis power of God within me. I want to be able to give my future children an inheritance as well as offer jobs to the youth that I mentor through Dunamis Community Advocate Services. I want them to say, “I discovered my purpose” and I can easily provide a pathway for them to produce in it.
My Escape: When I don’t find myself working I enjoy exploring the city of Chicago, dancing, boxing, pageantry, learning American Sign Language and vlogging on youtube!
