of Your Own Uniqueness, Inc.
Founded by Tunishai Ford, Your Own Uniqueness, Inc., is an organization that
connects, educates and supports women of all ages and backgrounds, and inspires
them to give back to their communities through mentorship, networking and
volunteerism. Through her desire to fulfill her purpose and help other women do
the same, Tunishai has nurtured a dream that is shaping lives. Your Own Uniqueness,
Inc. is built on a passion to inspire all women, and even in its infancy it has touched
hundreds of women throughout Metro Detroit. The direction the organization is
headed is simply… empowering and transforming lives.
Every cloud has a silver lining… Tunishai Ford is an example of a strong woman that turned her tragedy into a triumph.
Tunishai is a survivor of the fourth and last stage of Hodgkin’s lymphoma. And she believes that it was caused by the
bitterness and resentment she was plagued with and not knowing how to forgive and let go of the past. Because she was a
victim of low-self esteem and often experiencing rejection, she found herself in many toxic and co-dependent relationships.
She found herself making wrong choices in many areas of her life, therefore hindering her from reaching her full potential
and living her dream to fulfill her calling. When she overcame her insidious disease, she made up her mind that she was not
going to allow anyone or anything to hinder her from transforming her life and reaching her potential. She wanted to help
other women to go through the same metamorphosis.
Tunishai wanted to create a forum for other women with similar pressures, low self-esteem, and uncertainty. Your Own
Uniqueness, Inc. began as a small conference and workshop entity connecting like-minded women. But she soon realized
that it had more potential. There was still more that could be done. Today Tunishai leads an established non-profit
organization (founded in 2000) that includes professional development workshops, health awareness, and volunteerism for
women and young girls, financial growth, business guidance, networking and mentoring. It grounds women looking to build
relationships, fosters women looking to further themselves, and encourages women through the strength of paving it
Tunishai is an extremely dedicated woman determined to continue her vision to inspire, empower and transform our
community. Her story and commitment to her cause is truly admirable. We are very excited to see what lies ahead in the
next chapter for Your Own Uniqueness, Inc., and we hope that the next chapter of this saga will include you becoming a
member and supporter of this awesome woman and her vision---which includes you Discovering….Your Own Uniqueness.
