1: Welcome to Purpose University
So, what is Purpose University all about? Meet your host Dr. Eve, celebrating her birthday today, and let’s talking about the start of living your best life.
Evingerlean D. B. Hudson, Ph.D., affectionately known as Dr. Eve, is a native of Charlotte, North Carolina, and a first-generation college graduate who earned a Ph.D. at the age of 28. After years of service in postsecondary education, she decided to switch gears and started her social entrepreneurial journey.
Dr. Eve is Founder and President of Evingerlean Worldwide–an entity created to help first-generation college students and graduates thrive through personal transformation and entrepreneurial development. As an empowerment speaker and author, Dr. Eve has touched thousands of lives across the world.
Dr. Eve holds degrees from Shaw University (the oldest HBCU in the South) and The University of Southern Mississippi–holding membership in both alumni associations. She is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated and serves on the steering committee for The Black First-Gen Collective. In her spare time, Dr. Eve enjoys mentoring, reading, traveling, food tasting, cuddling with her chocolate lab (Maxwell Alexander), and adventures with her life partner, Dr. James M. Hudson.
