“I am so humbled to be presented with this award for member of the year. About four years ago I recognized that I was not fulfilling my potential in my career or in my life. I was not using my skills and talents to the fullest extent to create a purpose for my existence,” says Babiya.

I choose to be an active member that brings value to the organization and helps affect change in the business culture. NAWBO Columbus provides me with a platform where I can be my best self and have purpose as a woman in business. The meaning of this award validates that my voice matters, and my actions have impact for women who seek to be strong and more profitable women business owners in the community.”
