Reneta Bennett

Ms. Reneta LaShay Bennett is a purpose driven person who has found great meaning and refuge in spoken word. Ms. Bennett’s best friend passed away at an early age and left behind many poems revealing her insecurities and depression. Inspired by the death of her dear friend, Ms. Bennett founded her own spoken word organization for adolescents. This platform allows teenagers to express themselves in a safe, supportive environment while participating in community activism and building self-confidence. Through this experience, she hopes teenagers will find a sense of belonging and meaning.

Empowered Women International has provided guidance and direction for Ms. Bennett’s organization, allowing her to streamline her mission and build a more viable and strategic plan for the future. Similar to her own company, this program has instilled her with confidence and empowerment.
