“Thank you for speaking at our 1St Annual Closing Ceremony.  The topic was on point and extremely beneficial to our participants.  We have and continue to receive many wonderful comments from our attendees about how much they enjoyed the presentation.  Your ability to share your own experiences and relate them to real life situations touched not just the teen participants, but also women of all ages.  Many women walked away that day, reminded of their own personal struggles with self esteem, understanding how positive thinking and having the right attitude can transform their lives, and feeling more empowered to assist our youth!”  ~ Carla Crowder – President – We Are Strong Girls, Inc. 

“Before PEARL Girls, I had the lowest self-esteem.  But, through the workshops, my Mom, and Ms. Keisha, now I love the Me that I see and I am proud of who I am.”  ~Hannah B., age 12

“It was a pleasure working with Keisha! I would like to thank her for all of her help in our First Etiquette class for the Youth department at the Star of Bethlehem Baptist Church.  The children in attendance were elated!  The Mothers that attended are still talking about the session.  They have stated that they themselves learned a lot!  Keisha’s talents are a gift from God! Keep allowing the Lord to work through you, Keisha!”  ~Vivian Green, Youth Director, Star of Bethlehem Baptist Church

“One of Keisha’s most valuable assets is that that she uses her life experience to empower others to learn how not to be pulled down by limiting beliefs that society tends to impose on our young women. Our group was very fortunate to have spent an afternoon with her. Her boundless energy and enthusiasm for empowering our teens is highly contagious.” ~ Carolyn Johns – Executive Director – We Are Strong Girls, Inc.
