Empowerment Through Education

Fundraiser Initiative to Give Other Opportunities 
Let us Help Raise Awareness and Funding for Those in Need of Financial Assistance for Secondary Education to Assist to Give Their Gifts/Talents to the World

Background Story

I am a small town girl who dreamed to be the first college graduate in my family and coming from a low income background, it was not so easily achieved. The Scholarships I received allowed me to achieve that dream. I want to be able to pay it forward to as many student as possible. We all deserve a chance to achieve our dream and give our gifts and talents to the world.

I came across an amazing organization called Bring It-Push It-Own It. This program teaches self empowerment and leadership skills to our next generation. I felt compelled to help this group after joining to be a mentor, and what better way than to help their future by giving a scholarship for their college, technical school, or cosmetology schooling. I would highly recommend you check out their website. 


I have partnered with this group to raise scholarship funding for a participant. I am looking to expand this in 2021 to more students. 

Please Check Out the Shirts and other items I Designed for Sale Below and Located to Purchase in the Store Tab. The shirts also promote a positive message. They make wonderful gifts. We also have a Virtual Run Available- we all need motivation sometimes to get moving and what a great reward than to collect medals as we achieve our 5k/10k. 

100% Proceeds go to Scholarship Funding awarded in 2020-2021. Thank You for Your Support!
