Egypt has 3 children, Infant Harper, 8 year old Kendall and 19 year old step-daughter Simone with her husband of 10 years. She counts motherhood as her greatest achievement, as she says “Honestly it’s the best job I never knew I wanted. In my circle I’m the last of the mohicans. All my friends have kids graduating from college, and I’m still having babies. But I have zero regrets on waiting until later in life. I’m settled, grounded, and can actually laugh at myself now when I make mistakes. No mother is perfect.”
As a committed philanthropist with a huge heart, Egypt is ready to tackle serious issues in underserved communities and make a substantial difference in the lives of others. “Think about this, God didn’t add another day in our lives because WE needed it. He added it because someone out there needed US,” Egypt says. Her namesake, the “Egypt Cares Family Foundation,” was founded to aid in bridging the socio-economic gaps within the urban family structure. Egypt’s foundation regularly hosts seminars and clinics to educate families on home ownership, financial planning, & career advancement.
