About Me

Dionysia Ross

I grew up as an only child in Brooklyn, New York, under the care of my single mother, who is originally from the Caribbean island of Trinidad.

The bustling streets of NYC presented their challenges, but reflecting on my upbringing fills me with gratitude – my mother always did her best with the knowledge and resources available to her.

Inspired by my lived experience

Facing both physical and emotional trials throughout my journey from middle school to high school in Brooklyn, I personally chose to leave the city after completing my education. Initially setting my sights on a career as an adolescent psychologist in college, I later shifted gears and pursued nursing following my second semester. The path to becoming a nurse was anything but smooth, yet in May 2018, I proudly earned my BSN degree.

Vast experience working with teens in mental health.

I have a diverse background working with teens in various capacities. I have worked as a mental health nurse specializing in adolescents aged 11-18, providing vital care and support to help them navigate their mental health challenges.

Additionally, I have served as a youth leader for 7th and 8th-grade girls at my church, offering guidance and mentorship, and I have also served as a mentor for high school students in NYC.

2020 I launched the Beautiful Teenage Imperfection Podcast, a space specifically created for black and brown teens girls.

With the aim of inspiring, equipping, and empowering young women to take on the world, this podcast addresses the unique challenges faced by black and brown girls today society. Through personal experiences, relatable stories, and expert advice, listeners will gain the confidence and security needed to overcome obstacles and reach their full potential.

In addition to empowering black and brown teen girls, The Beautiful Teenage Imperfection Podcast also offers valuable insights and practical advice for parents navigating the challenges of raising and supporting their teenage daughters. Through dedicated segments and special episodes focusing on parenting topics, this podcast serves as a valuable resource for fostering understanding, communication, and connection within families.

Reflecting on my own struggles with depression, anxiety, generational challenges, and traumas not too long ago, I realize that each experience has shaped me into the woman I am today – fulfilling the purpose that God has intended for me. 

Embracing my imperfections daily, I frequently reminisce about my teenage years and the valuable lessons learned, understanding that the essence of life resides within the imperfections.

Teen Coaching is the answer

In January 2023 I became a Certified Teen Coach to make an impact and inspire the next generation of black and brown teen girls.

It’s a pleasure and an honor to support black and brown girls by giving them practical life skills that will result in enhanced self-esteem and personal power.

Feel confident, excited, and inspired by the person your teen daughter will become. No more fights, drama, or worrying about her future.
