Our Story

Always a Lady First, Inc. was founded by a young educator J. Desiree Rodriguez, at the age 22. The purpose of Always a Lady First is to ensure young ladies transition to high school with the mindset of success. Statistics suggest young ladies are afraid of the transition based on lack of self-love, goals, and comprehension. Always a Lady First will foster education, career development and self-love awareness that will prepare each young lady for their future endeavors. 


"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."

-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 


J. Desiree Rodriguez is from the Metropolitan area of Northern Virginia, and the youngest of three siblings. She is passionate about educating young ladies in  beauty, education, self-love, and health!
