About Us

Empowering Teen girls and Women Through Mentorship and Guidance.

                                                           An Idea was Born

The Women of Wisdom initiative stems from a strong desire to bridge the generational gap between teen girls and women. To empower generations to make wise decisions and reach their full potential with wisdom and confidence.  

Dorarena's mother passed away when she was only 11 months old, leaving her to be raised as the youngest child by her devoted father. Though some people suggested that he give the children away, he remained committed to his promise to keep the family together. Dorarena is grateful for her father's efforts and acknowledges that he did the best he could under the circumstances.

Dorarena became a mother at 18 and moved out on her own. Despite numerous obstacles, she gained wisdom through experience, observing other women, researching, and reading self-help books.


After years of searching for a mother figure/mentor to navigate life's challenges, Dorarena found no one willing to guide her. This experience inspired her to help other teen girls and women avoid similar setbacks and reach their full potential. With a passion for cultivating wisdom and confidence, Dorarena is committed to making a difference in the lives of those around her.

Through 'The Caterpillar to Butterfly Transformation,' she experienced a profound shift in her thinking, self-esteem, and confidence as an adult. This transformative experience inspired her to establish WOW, Inc. in 2016, with the goal of empowering and inspiring teenage girls and women to fearlessly pursue their dreams and reach their full potential.

My mission is to create a positive impact by empowering the younger generation through sharing knowledge. Bridging the generational gap and passing on vital knowledge is crucial. In support of this mission, I am dedicated to assisting female business owners and providing a platform for women and teen speakers to share their experiences and wisdom during our workshops. Our WOW team is committed to creating a brighter future for generations to come, and I invite you to join us in our efforts. As the Founder and CEO of this initiative, I am excited to make a difference and inspire others to do the same.
