Rahya Jewelry Design created an exclusive and breathtaking necklace called the GEN Pendant Necklace (available in gold and silver), which is inspired by the Girls Empowerment Network. The GEN community is humbled and grateful for Rahya and her artistic gift. We want the GEN community to get know this kind, confident, and inspiring designer and entrepreneur!
“When I first met Rahya I knew there was something special about her. She had her own style and confidence that radiated off of her. She is a role model wanting to learn and practice self-compassion. She then used her passion to create timeless pieces dedicated to ignite the power in our girls. GEN is so lucky to know Rahya and have her as a part of our family!” – Caroline Crawford, GEN’s Program Director
1. How did you hear about GEN?
I heard about Girls Empowerment Network through Caroline Crawford. Caroline was having a luncheon and was chatting about her work with Girls Empowerment Network. When I heard about it, I immediately fell in love and told Caroline that I wanted to be involved.
2.What is one word to describe yourself in middle school and why?
I would say mysterious. I really just marched to my own drum beat and was really into art. People didn’t really understand me and I didn’t understand them.
I think that my brand has a purposeful design and it’s to just doing things because people need you to or want you to. There is purpose that goes in Girls Empowerment Network and there is purpose and meaning that goes into my work.
7. If you could go on a road trip with anyone and anywhere, who would you go with and where?
I would love to go on a road trip to Cali with my mom and drive down the coast of California!
