Pamela Villa Kundu has a varied career path and background. She started out her career at JP Morgan in a coveted role but left three years later to serve her community. Pam was recently a Bloomberg Public Health Fellow at Johns Hopkins. She is also the Director of Development for a non-profit in New York City that focuses on a range of youth justice issues. BronxConnect has helped thousands of young people avoid jail time, while equipping them with the tools to avoid future crime. Pam is Mexican-American and currently raising twins with her husband in Miami FL. She continues to work remotely for BronxConnect. In her spare time, Pam invests in real estate, tries to spend time in nature, and creates content on Tik Tok. 

Suzette Simon is the founder of NYLaughs, a New York-based nonprofit that produces free comedy events in public spaces to inspire audiences, enrich the lives of New Yorkers, connect them through humor while deepening an appreciation of stand up comedy as a unique NYC cultural asset.  Diagnosed with stage II breast cancer in January 2020, the Manhattan-based producer is now using laughter in her battle with the disease to raise awareness of the impact breast cancer — which kills Black women at a 42 percent higher rate than white women — has on the Black community. Suzette recently launched her awareness initiative called #STRONGBLACKBOOBS as a place to go for the intersection of her own breast cancer journey, information, comedy, self-esteem boosting, and support for communities of color. She is the self-appointed “Master of #CancerBadAssery” and considers herself to be in the running to be “America’s Next Top Cancer Survivor.” She hopes that being a #CancerBadass might shake things up and save black lives. She looks forward to reshaping Black Boob leadership and dominating boobs, cancer, and the whole world (in a good way, of course!) one fun-filled post at a time.
