MyCity4Her Media was founded to give women in business, women business owners and women entrepreneurs a place to showcase their stories, their challenges, their knowledge and their experience and subject matter expertise.
We began on the web with MyCity4Her.com in 2007 with a vision and a dream that busy women like to save time and do our best to make everything relevant and useful to do so, “one click away”.
MyCity4Her.com was focused primarily women in business, and grew to 11 markets in the US and one in Canada and was at it’s peak in 2014 when it was named one of Baltimore’s Fastest Growing Women Owned Businesses by the Baltimore Business Journal.
Then, in the fall of 2014, our Founder and Publisher Monyka Berrocosa underwent a major life event, and had to take a step back due to life threatening uterine cancer in 2015.
This painful, challenging and difficult set back caused a major shift in Monyka’s thought process and approach to life. Once stable and recovered, she took a year off from her usual projects and MyCity4HER to create and lead the first of it’s kind venture entrepreneurship program at MICA. The Maryland Institute College of Art – called MICApreneurship. The program encompassed a total $1Million dollar grant, and a competitioin that awarded $125,000 annually to promising ventures started by MICA students. Monyka left MICA in May of 2016 to return to her other projects and focus on her only child who was starting high school in fall 2016. She also founded an investment and advisory company called Walpurgis Holdings LLC.
In late 2016, after being approached to relaunch but with a different vision, bshe decided she wanted to bring MyCity4HER.com back to the community. However, this time around her focus shifted to mirro her new approach to life.
Being so very ill, and literally almost dying, Monyka realized first hand that women are more than what they do, they are not just Mom’s, or CEO’s, or Professionals. She also learned that when you’re at death’s door, it’s usually not work that comes to hold your hand, and very quickly you gather that what you do, isn’t who you are. Not to the people who matter. Women are a spectrum of things, as is life. Women also can’t get very far without a few good men. As a result, going forward we will shed some light on men who help women lift and climb, and help make the overall community better for their knowledge, their approach to work and their support and respect of women in what they do.
