Ms. Selma White is from Elizabeth City, NC. She is a Mother, Grandmother, retired Army Sergeant, Owner of Stella’s Convenience Store, and a seasoned Real Estate Investor. Ms. White aspired to be a businesswoman early in life as she saw it as an opportunity to assist and invest in her local community. She knew the importance of business ownership, particularly, as it relates to inspiring others.
Her twenty years of military training equipped her with the leadership tools needed to become a successful business owner and operator. An amazing story of hers is being the only female in her battalion while on active duty in the 70s. She's broken many barriers in life, but this experience ranks at the top as it was one of the first that taught her how to be resilient...paving the way for her entrepreneurial spirit.
Even though running a community convenience store (Stella’s) over the last twenty five (25) years or so has its challenges, she wouldn’t change it for the world. It is a staple of the community offering some of the best soul food in North Carolina. It also allows her to commune with a wealth of people on varying levels. Someday, she plans to devote more time and effort into her real estate investing business. The additional freedom it offers will ultimately help to enhance her life even more as well as the lives of others.
Ms. White believes God must be at the forefront of everything to be successful. Family closely follows, believing in self, and going out and doing “YOU” are extremely important as well. This support system and way of thinking fuels her desire to help push various social issues that will ultimately show respect and love for country. Initiating or joining a platform that facilitates this would be ideal. Hats off to this accomplished businesswoman and highly decorated Army Veteran.
