On this episode, co-hosts Adanna Dill and Schnelle Acevedo chat
with Eva Greene Wilson a wife, mother of 3, author of two
children's books, illustrator, speaker, a graduate of Howard
University School of Law, the owner and editor of the award-winning
website SocaMom.com®, homeschooling advocate, and the founder of
the SocaMom® Summit.

homeschooled her three children and continued to speak
internationally, and write. Whether it was reading her law
assignments before events while covering the Congressional Black
Caucus Foundations Annual Legislative Conference, speaking at the
National Council of Negro Women's Conference between classes, or
studying for exams while on a work trip in the Caribbean, Eva has
always found a way to make it work.
As a blogger, Eva is known for creating videos for
brands, having an engaged community, and being a trusted
for information on the Caribbean, blogging,
parenting, and education. Since 2011, she has written about
American parenting, working on campaigns for
companies such as Wal-Mart, AT&T, and Beaches Resorts. She won
Best Parenting Blog and Best New Blog in the Black Weblog Awards,
and she is a SheKnows/BlogHer Voices of the Year Honoree and
presenter in the Long Form Video category. She later served as a
judge for the awards.
As the founder of the SocaMom® Summit, Eva brought
together more than 70 speakers representing over 20
countries, at the height of the coronavirus
pandemic to discuss issues that are important to the Caribbean
diaspora. The event, held virtually in April and June of 2020,
collectively provided the community with over 50 sessions totaling
more than 30 hours of discussions, teaching, and entertainment for
both children and adults.
