BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Founder & President
HELLO EVERYONE! I am Sanai Pope, the Founder, and President of The W.O.K.E Society! I am a junior at Grayson High School, and I am very passionate about equality for all people. I started The W.O.K.E. Society to provide a platform to reach as many young women in my community as possible. I am so thankful to have been given the opportunity to speak to, inspire, and be inspired by countless young women.
For the members of W.O.K.E, I want everyone to realize that you are ENOUGH, and that you MATTER!! And to my fellow sisters, come join us on our journey to finding our true selves, and loving ourselves more than we ever have before!! Stay W.O.K.E!!
Hey! I’m Kennedy Johnson. I am currently a junior at Grayson High School, and I am the Vice President of The W.O.K.E. Society. I love fashion, art, dance, and photography. My career interests are within architecture, law, social media marketing, and entrepreneurship. I am passionate about climate change and the rights of women, Indigenous people, Black Lives Matter and the LGBTQ+ community. In the future I aspire to have a social or political platform to educate and inspire others to use their voices for change.
With W.O.K.E, I want young women to value themselves, feel empowered, and gain confidence. I want our members to realize their self-worth and how important they are to this world. Together, we can break societal norms and take on the world as strong, independent, and successful women!
Hey! My name is Chantia Fletcher and I am a Junior at Grayson High School. I am the Secretary of The W.O.K.E. Society and I can’t wait to meet all of you and make some of our best memories. I love biology, art, animals, dance, photography, and have recently become interested in law and criminal justice. My goal for members of W.O.K.E. is to help each and every individual realize what they are capable of as women of color. Color is not a curse, but it is a blessing and reminder of just how strong we are as the descendants of those that fought and survived. I look forward to our members’ journeys of self-discovery.
Social Media Marketing Manager
Hi my name is Elise Hunter, I am a junior at Grayson high school and the head of social media. In the future I hope to have a career in social media marketing as well as learn to be a professional editor and designer. I have been dancing for about 10 years now and absolutely love the art. I will minor in dance, so hopefully it can be a part of my future. W.O.K.E provides a great opportunity for me to learn as well as teach self-confidence to teen girls. I am excited to be a part of an organization that shows that just because you are a young woman, doesn’t mean you can’t live a life of endless possibilities, which includes education. I hope you enjoy this experience as much as I will!!
