Loving Myself Into My Purpose
Queen Pilar Symone, Founder and CEO of Empower Our Crown has been a proponent for women and community empowerment, mental health, and leadership development for as long as she can remember. Blessed with two biological sisters and many other sisters that she has formed lifetime bonds with over the years, Pilar has truly valued and committed herself to sisterhood. Pilar is a Spelman College Alumnae, where she expanded the number of sisters exponentially. Sisters from all over the continental United States and abroad.
Her experiences at Spelman and beyond stimulated her love for self and others. Pilar has been running girls’ groups for the past decade. She has been a “big sister” to young girls and continues to tutor and mentor teen girls at risk. For the past ten years Pilar has devoted her time to the mental health field. She majored in Psychology in undergrad at Spelman College, studied Psychology and Mental Health while living abroad in Denmark for half a year, received her Masters in Mental Health Counseling at Boston University School of Medicine and in 2019 she began her journey as a Clinical Psychology Doctoral Student. Pilar has a strong passion to empower individuals and communities through emotional and mental wellness. Pilar has also served as a School Counselor and Mental Health Advocate who has focused primarily on empowering children and families to achieve a healthy mind, body , and spirit.
In 2017, Pilar created a platform for women and girls of color who shared the desire to develop self-love, self-confidence and identify their God-given purpose. She launched her first “Black Girl Magic Brunch” in June of 2017 and her second in December of 2018. These “Black Girl Magic” Brunch Events were created in order to provide a safe space for women and girls of color to celebrate individuality, sisterhood, network and identify steps to build overall excellence.
Pilar is committed to walking in her truth, walking by faith , growing in self love and loving others the way God loves all. She is dedicated to changing the narrative for people of color by providing a space that inspires mental health wellness, self- love, encourages self- growth , promotes unity and advances individual and community prosperity.
