About Go for Yours

When you go for yours, you don’t wait on an opportunity, you CREATE it.  Go for Yours is a community of creators, trailblazers, and entrepreneurs who are clever, original, and innovative. We take pride in providing support for overlooked and undervalued GENIUSES.


Go for Yours started out as a book featuring stories about young people who overcame obstacles on the path to following their dreams and achieving their goals. Readers are introduced to stories like Jerome Boykin, who, at the age of 23, started a million-dollar parking lot cleaning business after losing everything in Hurricane Katrina.

While promoting the message of Go for Yours to various students across the country, Erika noticed a difference between underprivileged youth and their more privileged peers. Both were equally talented, but one group lacked the resources they needed to become the best people they were born to be. This prompted Erika to start the Go for Yours Foundation as a tool to educate, empower, and provide opportunities and resources to young people in need of support.
