There are three items that top my To Do list for 2010 --

1. Continue to drive Uptown Girl Power with my fellow Bronx Girls, Kerry Washington and Joy Bryant. This past year Uptown Girl Power raised funds and awareness for large-scale art projects. In 2010 I want to make this bigger, better, and further-reaching - literally painting the town positive with murals and public art showing women at their strongest and most powerful.

2. Write my first book.  I’m using my autobiography to show women of all colors how they can unlock the enormous potential within their communities and themselves. No matter what your situation, creating the world you want is something everyone can do, and writing a book is one more way I can inspire and help folks to do just that. 

3. Develop a green investment fund.  My company is developing a green investment fund that will tap into the amazing investment opportunities in clean technologies that I see in cities and rural places across the country on my speaking tours.
