What’s your best advice for your younger self?

I would tell my younger self that every decision, action and thought rather intentional or done accidentally, is all apart of the journey to your purpose. Guard your heart and be sure to hold on to every experience. When you make it to your purpose you’ll understand that it was all worth it and you will appreciate the journey all the more!

About Millicent D. Griffin

My name is Millicent D. Griffin, I am an native of Harvey, IL, located in the

After graduating from Illinois State University, I formed an interest in education. In August 2009, I started classes at the University of
Phoenix. In April 2013, I earned my Master’s in Elementary Education. Later, after teaching for four years, I had the desire to become a School Counselor. In January 2017, I began class at Concordia University. After attending there for two years, I graduated with my Masters in School Counseling. I served as a School Counselor with Chicago Public Schools for two years. Millicent believes all children can learn when loved from a genuine and sincere place. Even though I greatly enjoy helping and assisting our young girls. I have a love for fashion, ministry, and music. In March of 2023, I became an author with the publishing of my first book, “Becoming S.H.E. Secured.Healed.Evolved” . I am currently apart of the professional recording choir, The Tommies Reunion Choir under the leadership of Grammy Awarding winning Dr. Darius Brooks.
