Terrica Smith

Join us for a virtual chat with Terrica Smith, a successful entrepreneur who overcame poverty, homelessness and countless other challenges to launch her own real estate development company. She is now pursuing her long-held dream of building more affordable housing in her community, in part through her work championing an ongoing $15 million development project in Lafayette, Louisiana that will offer homes priced at $150,000 and below, as well as a senior living center. 

Terrica will share experiences of how she has used real estate to forge a path against all odds and pursue her passion for economic and social change. She is a shining example of how to use business for a better world.
