Empress Destinee

Destinee Porter is Empress Training’s Chief Executive Officer and works as a Head Cultural Advisor, majoring in Social Work. While attending Holt High School in Holt MI, she underwent the pressures of being a lost teen trying to identify who she was and her place in life. After graduating she went on to attend Georgia Highlands College where she felt her mission had been exposed. After being a fan of Reality TV Shows, she began to view them as disgusting to watch. Noticing the degradation of black women in media raised frustration. She observed that young black girls began emulating these characters blind to the fact that these facades weren’t reality. It encouraged her to question why black women always seemed to be fighting, angry, portrayed as promiscuous, and undesirable to others. She soon accepted the journey to answering these questions through research. Once she began finding answers she felt it was unacceptable to deprive younger generations of black women the knowledge she’d discovered.


Five months later she created Empress Training in hopes to educate young black girls about an identity and version of themselves they had never heard of. Destinee specializes in instructing classes that discuss;

  • Ancient African Queens

  • The Embrace of Femininity and Feminine Energy

  • Psychological Effects of Slavery

  • The Power of Melanin

  • Black Culture
