Chris-Tia Donaldson is a woman on a MISSION. Always has been. Ever since she was a high school student in Detroit, Chris-Tia has dreamed big dreams and worked ferociously to achieve them. First, a place at Harvard College. Then, an encore at Harvard Law School. Then, the top law firm in Chicago. But that still wasn’t enough.
She’s now a successful entrepreneur who is the CEO of Thank God It’s Natural (TGIN), a multi-million dollar natural hair care and personal products company that is taking the market by storm. TGIN’s products are now in Target, Sally’s Beauty Supply, and soon, they’ll be at a store near you, whether you’re in Iowa, England or Nigeria.
