P.U.S.H: Pushing Us & Sharing Hope


P.U.S.H was created in November 2018 as a centralized foundation focusing on inspiring, educating, honoring and advocating for women across Galveston County. 

P.U.S.H. is dedicated to being a voice for women who have historically been voiceless; moreover, a voice to those who have lost hope. Through our service efforts, educational opportunities, The Legacy Walk, mentoring programs and various outreaches, P.U.S.H. will work toward the progression of black and brown women for the betterment of the culture. We also vow to not lose sight of our brother’s in the process of bettering ourselves. 

Thus, P.U.S.H. will serve as the umbrella foundation for Tray’s Way Scholars and other projects that incorporate the communities that impact black and brown women. P.U.S.H. is dedicated to pushing us forward while sharing the hope that is needed to endure OUR journeys as we live out loud.

I’ve never met someone so ambitious and motivated as LaTosha. She is so inspiring, OMG! Our familial backgrounds, kindness and desire to win are our commonalities. It’s a joy to witness her P.U.S.H through every obstacle and come out on top! & have I mentioned her shoe collection, a girls dream.
