We had the good fortune of connecting with Khadijah Torbert and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Khadijah, what inspires you?
I’m mainly inspired by my faith. Everything down to motives, intentions, and the way I treat people stems from my upbringing as a follower of Christ. I truly believe that my becoming and evolving is due to the way I was raised and my christian background.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Young Ladies of Integrity, community outreach organization ministry. This organization was pivotal in my becoming of who I am. It was there through the ministry where we learned our value as young ladies, and how to live with integrity. I can’t say enough how much I am thankful for the mentors guidance and their leadership. The CEO, Serita Jackson had a vision to encourage and instill worthiness into young ladies age 13-18. Those years being apart of this community outreach has made all the difference, forever grateful for the organization.
