Earlene Taylor’s vision is that all young women, if given the right tools can become extremely successful at an early age.  She hopes to provide hands on training for young women so that they can see the necessity for them to become business owners and successful entrepreneurs.  Her desire is to teach young women/girls the principles so that they can “Be all that they can be.”

​​​​Earlene Lezama-Taylor is from Queens NY.  She received her AS from Metropolitan College for Business Management. She is currently enrolled  at St. Johns University to receive her BA. She comes with a wealth of knowledge in business, and working as a mentor.  She is a notary,  a member of The Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce and the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. Earlene believes all youth can become who they want to be with the proper education and training tools.  So, she started “Complete Girlz” Mentoring/Empowerment Program, where she is has been the CEO for over 3 years. Complete Girlz was founded in 2015 and incorporated in 2016 as a 501(c)3. The organization trains young ladies to become successful in their endeavors.  Complete Girlz is located within 2 facilities currently which are as follows: Middle School 8 and Starbucks-Sutphin.  CGI also hold specialized workshops at local Shelters and recreational centers as well. In 2018 Complete Girlz received the “Gem Among Us Award” from the Malik Melodies Sisterhood, Inc. and in 2019 Earlene received The “Community Service Award” from The Laurelton Club of The National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, Inc. Earlene has received citations from notable elected officials such as Senator Leroy Comrie in 2018 & 2019, Assemblywoman Alicia L. Hyndman in 2019, Councilman Member L. Daneek Miller in 2019 and The Laurelton NANBPWC. She received a Congressional Certificate of Merit from Member of Congress Gregory W. Meeks and a Certificate of Appreciation from the President of the Borough of Queens Melinda Katz.   She also received the "Queens of NCouragement" award from Sisters NCourage. Her future aspirations include working for the Department of Education and continuing to impact the community in a positive manner through the work her non-for-profit is doing at Complete Girlz, Inc.
