MEET RIKA B.

Gerrikka Bunche, affectionately known as Rika B., is a wife, mother, coach, entrepreneur, and friend. She is also a “Mom Enthusiast” which is very befitting as she fulfills her purpose and passion for inspiring and motivating mothers to break society’s “just a mom” standard.

Rika obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from NC Central University in 2010. Her HBCU Love Story, friendships, and experience play an intricate role in her success. There are parts of her dear ol’ NCCU in every aspect of her life- love, business, family, etc. and she is honored to be #NCCUMade.  

Recruiter by day, hustler by night, in 2015 Rika founded Childish, an international brand and headquarters for dope tees and has been a #MamaOnTheGrind ever since.  After several moments of desiring a space to network with other moms in the RDU area who are balancing babies and business as well, she created what she wished existed and launched Mom Redefined in January 2017.  Mom Redefined is the platform used to encourage moms to chase their dreams as hard as they chase their kids. In the words of Queen Bee, we are “strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business.”

Originally from Robersonville, NC, Gerrikka now resides in Raleigh, NC with her husband, Terrence Sr, and their children- Terrence II (Deuce) and Taylor (Bee). A God fearing woman addicted to random dance battles with Deuce, blowing bubbles with Bee, trap music and target runs, traveling, and all things fun and random, she somehow finds a way to balance it all.  When she is not partaking in those things, Rika is doing everything she can to pave the way for the millennial mom, redefined.
