Hello! I’m Aprill Edwards!
I am founder and CEO of Because She Matters LLC. My mission is to educate and empower women and girls, primarily of color, on how to create a powerful, purposeful life for them and those around them by discovering and tapping into the true power within. I believe that the ability to create the life we truly desire is found by tapping into ourselves. So, I use tools and strategies related to self-discovery, self-esteem, self-help, self-empowerment, and self-love to shed the layers inhibiting them from living their most powerful, most powerful life.
I’m just a beautiful brown girl in a big ole world here to shake things up a bit. I believe, wholeheartedly, that God has called me—putting me on the frontline to share my voice, my skills, and my life—the bad and the beautiful—to help position women and girls to live a healthy, happy, healed and whole life.

Trauma bonds. I guess that’s the subject today. We shall see… I was honestly sitting here after just finishing my gratitude/reflections/affirmations/manifestation journaling process. I was thinking about relationships-again. They can be the greatest asset...
Yesterday I spent some time with a woman who I’ve grown to admire over the past few months. She has such a beautiful spirit – a love for God and for people. She’s my sponsor. Yes, I said it right. My sponsor. I could easily dress that title up and call her...
Today is the first day of my daily blog. I have no idea what this is going to become, but I expect it will evolve over time. God gave me this assignment last year. I set up the blog and then pressed pause. Then, last month, he gave me a strong push to start. NOW. So,...
Let’s chat about trauma. What is trauma? And why must EVERY woman expand what they know about trauma ASAP? Trauma, trauma, trauma. What is trauma? This subject right here…oooh weee…I need all of my ladies to tune in! And if you are a good-hearted person, you...
