Katreece Stevens squeezed in time for the Bee and explained how she found herself a new business owner and a resource for the community. Born and raised in Camden, NJ Stevens always wanted to give back but it wasn't until she found herself unexpectedly out of work due to an injury that she decided to seize her chance to strike it as a business owner.
"It was never in my plan to open a thrift shop. I was dedicated to the law firm I worked for for 14 years but I found myself in a situation where I had to figure out if I was going to strike out on my own or to continue to work for someone else. I'm into reality shows like "Pawn Stars" or "Storage Wars" and one night it clicked! I said 'That's how I'm going to give back!' My husband take what ever we make and donate it to shelters, families, hospitals or whoever is in need including my adopted family. My Shop is dedicated to the city of Camden. I like to help people by enforcing my positivity onto the next, I'm helping others pay it forward.
The Profit from the shop allows me to offer free services like free notary, interview prep, including outfits for the interviews to those who can't afford it. I get them ready, This is truly a multipurpose shop and this all happened so fast! I had the idea on August 30th and the shop opened on October 28th! But I did this off of faith- I have faith in my shop! We also have a wish list. If you can't find what you're looking for in the shop I will look for it- anywhere. Once I find it I'll call you to let you know it's in. If you're on our wish list your items are guaranteed to be here!"

Meet Haley Smith, a multi-talented teen with a powerful message. Singing has long been a passion of hers since she started flexing her vocal skills at the age of six. After losing her father to street violence at the younger of 13, she was able to channel her loss and deliver a winning performance at the Apollo shortly after. But it didn't stop there, producer Chas Bronxson had caughter her moving performance and worked with the teen on her single I Miss My Daddy.
" I wanted to help young kids out there like me that don't have a relationship with father," says the 16 year old. Bronxon also adds that they plan on dealing with the reasons that little girls are missing a parent whether it's from absence by choice, death, or the military.
The busy 10th grader, who happens to act and is an accomplished dancer as well, still manages to find time to be a teenager enjoying shows like The Vampire Diaries, Ghost Whisperer, and Grey's Anatomy and listening to artists like August Alsina, Chris Brown, and The Weeknd.

This fall I attended a dinner organized by the ladies of The Feminist Business Society, but this wasn't your average ladies luncheon. Founded by Erin Johnson, Tamika Mason, and Brittany & Tiffany Moye, the banquet focused on professional women pooling their resources and contacts to further their own business' and professional aspirations. To say that it was inspiring is the least. With it's core founders being from my home town of Camden, NJ their ultimate goal and vison is anything but self-serving, that was proven in the discussions of the night.Everything about the dinner made the attendees feel exclusive like they were becoming apart of something great for the city at the ground floor. The location was kept secret until days before revealing itself to be at The Camden County Historical Society building. Ladies were escorted on a guided tour before being seated in a dinning hall and treated to a sit down dinner with entertainment by rising singing and spoken word artist Rayel. The evening continued with networking and formal introductions. We were then encouraged to open up about our experiences in the work force, the struggle of female entrepreneurism, and balancing work, education, and of course family life. When the dinner concluded their was solidarity and power in the air, and it smelled like feminism.Amidst the bustle and excitement in the end I grabbed time to sit with the founders and discuss their goals for the society.
The Media Bee: Thanks for siting down with me at the end of your exciting evening! Can you tell me a little bit about how the society came together.
Erin Johnson: I had this ideal and reached out to Brittany Moye, a beaqutique owner who brought her sister Tiffany whos and aspiring decorator.
Tamika Mason: I grew up with Erin and I was following her and saw that she released her own on line boutique and was so intrigued with her feminist clothing line and had to reach out to tell her an idea I had brewing. From there we kind of collaborated ideas and that's how this all came together.
The Media Bee: All of you ladies are from the city of Camden, where do you see this going forward as far as empowering the citizens of Camden namely young females.
Erin: This is all an experiment and I almost didn't see past this, but now we want to work on a second installment and focus on our business directory so that we can all stay connected and support each other. If you need a party planner, if you sell clothes, I don't care if you are a tutor. If you have a service, we want you in this directory. So our second installment is coming and will probably be a spring brunch.
The Media Bee: Brittany, it's amazing that you were all doing your own thing having the same ideas, how did you guys come up with the name for the society?
Brittany Moye: Well, Erin and I met by networking on social media and instantly clicked and we just started brainstorming of what to call this and I thought of here collection and it was right in front of us- The Feminists!
The Media Bee: Tiffany, do you see this getting bigger?
Tiffany Moye: Yes, definitely! I'm just happy to be on board, I'm an up and coming event planner, and I wan this to become huge, especially for the city of Camden.
The Media Bee: Do you ladies think you will be branching out to holding other events not just for women but for the city of Camden.
Erin: A portion of the proceeds from my personal business goes to non-profit organizations and community service projects here in the city. We don't have to create new things if it already exists. We had quite a few ladies here tonight from non-profits and I'm willing and ready to rally around and support them.
The Media Bee: Well we will definitely be looking out for more Feminists Business Society events in the future!
