The Beginning


COG has had a lot of E-board meetings in preparation for our interest meeting and social media launch! In addition, we have already assisted one queen in strengthening her Crown! A freshman at GWU stopped by our E-board meeting asking for some hair tips.


That night COG founder, Faith Elie assisted her in tying Bantu knots*. The next day Milan proudly wore her hair down (she always liked hiding it in a pony tail)!

IMG_5177We haven’t even had our interest meeting and we are already educating, empowering and uplifting women. It is going to be a fantastic year!


*Bantu knots: “Hairstyle created when the hair is sectioned off in diamond, triangle or square shapes and twisted into knots. Also known as Zulu knots.”


*the big chop: “Big chop is the process of cutting off the relaxed or permed ends of one’s hair when she is transitioning from chemically processed hair to natural hair.”
