I am Dr. Evingerlean D. B. Hudson–a very proud native of Charlotte, North Carolina. I am the oldest of three and was reared by a single mother in a low-socioeconomic household. A first-generation college graduate of the FIRST HBCU in the South, I went on to eventually earn a Ph.D. at the age of 28.
After years of service in higher education, I decided to launch my social entrepreneur journey. Now, I’m the Founder and Chief Strategist of Evingerlean Worldwide™ and on a mission to inspire, empower, and uplift first-generation scholars and graduates across the globe.
Be it passing the mic for a signature talk, making history at The First-Gen Shop™, enrolling at First-Generation University™, or listening to The First-Gen Lounge™, I’d like to invite you to join the movement!
