Because I Am A Queen Founders: Ashlee stone & Nyia braddy

The Issues

  • 7 in 10 girls believe that they are not good enough or don’t measure up in some way, including their looks, performance in school and relationships with friends and family members.
  • Teen girls that have a negative view of themselves are 4 times more likely to take part in activities with boys that they've ended up regretting later.
  • 75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating. This compares to 25% of girls with high self-esteem.

Our vision

  • Four week mentoring program to provide young women in the sixth - ninth grades with the adult support, community resources and friendship to decrease the likely hood of the issues becoming a factor in our participant's lives.
  • Each Saturday in June from 8 a.m- 12 p.m we will offer workshops and lectures on 4 key areas. Each week will will invite a professional in the field to share with our participants.
Mission: To empower young girls to become self-loving, confident queens who embody the true essence of themselves.
