A few months back, I had the privilege of interviewing Miss Syreeta Gates, a Culture Creator and the author of the book ‘Just Be Cause‘. Not only is she a mentor to me, but her mission is to make young people “DOPE“. Miss Syreeta’s explains how she was inspired to write a book when she wasn’t able to find information about social entrepreneurship for herself. Here is a 2 minute video of our interview.
Another GOODIEBag Success! When I did the first mission, my mom was with me and she kept telling me that philanthropy is about giving to others to improve their lives, but it also change my life too. Back in April we arrived in Guatemala to give away 25 GOODIEBags to one class of 4th graders, this time the challenge was to give away 60, without my mom here to encourage me.
But I am happy to say, I did it! The smiles, claps and hugs from 60 kids holding their signature pink Little Miss GOODIE Bags and post cards all to smile for the camera is something I will never forget. My mom was right, it doesn’t take much to give and this has changed my life. I family who are my Little Miss Goodie Ambassadors came dressed in their PINK and helped with handing out GOODIE Bags to the families of two classes of kindergarteners at the Santa Rosita elementary school in Guatemala.
We can combat poverty! With as little as $25 you can bless someone less fortunate today! Thank you to everyone who donated to the cause and to the LMG Board of Directors who are helping to take this initiative to the next another level. We are the generation that has to teach the next generation to GIVE!
My family came together to help me fill 60 bags, together my Little Miss Goodie Ambassadors got the job done!
Helping others can be the best thing to bring can be good for the soul. We laughed and talked while we worked; it was good to know my family was willing to take time off to support the GOODIEBag project
Each pink signature GOODIE Bag contained basic necessities that was packed with love , with the hope of making a positive difference for those living in poverty. …Be Inspired to GIVE!
Sunday, May 4th, in Williamsburg, I attended a benefit for 14 Plus Foundation B at Baby’s Alright. Founded by Joseph Mizzi and Nchimunya Wulf, the purpose was to raise money to help build schools and orphanages for children in Zambia, Africa. The donation that was a minimum of
and her styling geniuses, Lizzy and Darlene Okpo of William Okpo, a designer collection. I was impressed by all of their style and they were surprised at my age! I appreciated their words of encouragement to, “Keep up the GOOD work”.
The one and only Shaun Ross, took me by the hand and told me to work the room. Great minds think alike, can’t you tell the connection with the colors of our clothes?
I’ve known Miss Samantha Black when I was probably 5 or 6 years old. She has what I call a unique style that is fun and flirty, which is why she was on Project Runway’s Season 11. I appreciate her remembering me and being a role model for girls my age who have an interest in fashion.
Ms. Camara is talent you can’t “beat”! Literally, she is a make-up artist and works with celebrities as well as the everyday woman. She is so COOL!
It was a great event with people who gave from the heart. Remember you can make a difference to those less
families who can’t afford to buy food because of the cost or large number of family members. Sometimes we don’t think about how those who are less fortunate will be able to manage if the schools are closed and the students will have no food to eat while they are on vacation, which is why Holy Week was PERFECT!
My mom and my grandma have always reminded me of how fortunate we are and that the fun in giving comes with the rewards of future blessings. I was a little overwhelmed at first because I didn’t know what to
Yesterday was TERRIFIC!!!!! I was invited to sit on my very first panel at the She is Me: Skin I’m Inluncheon at Mott Hall Bridges Academy. There were over 300girls and women, I have to admit I was a little nervous to be in front of a lot of people, but I wanted to make a good impression. Miss Michaela angela Davis was the moderator to the panel that included Miss Renae Bluitt,MissTaiia Smart-Young, Miss Kathy Bowman-Williams, Dr. Wendi Williams, and myself.
Each of us shared what the Skin I’m In meant to all of us and gave advice to young girls about how they should present themselves online.
Little Miss Goodie empowers and sets the standards for girls who use social media site. You don’t have to change who you are in order to be liked, instead love yourself and celebrate the GOOD that is in you!
