How do I know if this is for me?

That's simple. If you answer "yes" to any of the following:

  • Are you parent, legal guardian, or family member of first-generation scholar or graduate?

  • Value personal development and believe investing in your student's growth is of utmost importance for helping light their path?

  • Seeking resources and tools to be both impactful in your work and empowering for those who you serve?

Meet Dr. Eve

Founder and Chief Strategist

Evingerlean D. B. Hudson, Ph.D.

Hey, hey! I’m Dr. Evingerlean D. B. Hudson, affectionately known as Dr. Eve®, and I was raised in beautiful Charlotte, North Carolina by a single mother in a low-socioeconomic household. I went on to become a first-generation college graduate and even earned a Ph.D. at the age of 28. I'm a higher education professional turned Founder and Chief Strategist of Evingerlean Worldwide®—an entity created to empower first-generation scholars and graduates across the globe. Of many firsts that I’ve created, a few worth noting are: The First-Gen Lounge™, The First-Gen Shop™, and First-Generation University™. As an international speaker, podcast host, and author, I’ve touched thousands of lives through my work. A few of my past audiences include Cornell University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, The Ohio State University, 1vyG, Social Knowbility, Women Empower X, The United Negro College Fund, and National TRIO Programs. The First-Gen Lounge, the first and #1 podcast in the world for first-generation scholars and graduates, is closing in on 100k downloads across more than 90 countries. My publications have helped transform the lives of countless first-generation trailblazers. I'm excited to be a BlkWomenHustle's Inaugural 20 Women to Watch Honoree and highlighted as a Future Millennial Millionaire by Creating Your Seat at The Table International Magazine. I’ve been featured across several media outlets Voyage MIA, The Pedestal Project, and Minding My Black Business to name a few. Thank you for being here. I look forward to sharing this journey with you!
