Meet Trailblazer Kysha’ Lockett

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kysha’ Lockett.

Kysha’ Lockett is the youngest of three girls, born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, a graduate of the University of Arkansas at Pine-Bluff, and Member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority lost her mother to cancer during her senior year at Riverview Gardens High School. With an outpouring of support from her family and friends she graduated college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and began her mission of helping young women in the City of St. Louis copes with loss and tragedy at a young age. Her work with non-profit organizations and juvenile centers began to unveil her purpose in life. It motivated her to create Rhonda’s Heart: Motherless Daughters and honor of her mother Rhonda Denise Arnett by helping women of all ages who are without mothers. Rhonda’s Heart is a non-profit organization founded by Kysha’ Lockett, to infuse peace and hope into the hearts of women who are without mothers physically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially. The purpose of Rhonda’s Heart Motherless Daughters is to cultivate and encourage women of all ages who have lost their mothers from death, incarceration, and abandonment.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Starting has not been the easiest, they are always going to be challenges with any journey. I have learned that the best way to handle them is to face them head-on. The advice I would give to young women is to accept their past, embrace your experiences and live in your truth in both business and life.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Rhonda’s Heart: Motherless Daughters – what should we know?
I specialize in working with women who have lost their mothers. I encourage them to go through therapy and organize support groups to help them cope. I am building a community of women to support each other during times of need.

I am most proud of the fact that I am providing women with the type of support and resources I did not receive when I lost my mother.

So much of the media coverage is focused on the challenges facing women today, but what about the opportunities? Do you feel there are any opportunities that women are particularly well-positioned for?
I feel a woman can do anything she sets her mind and heart on accomplishing.
