With access to the right resources, girls can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. We provide our girls with access to professionals in their field for first-hand experiences, seminars, workshops, and more.
Support is by no means an easy feat. Through cooperation and community empowerment, we can build a positive and safe family for our girls. We are always striving to make a difference through encouragement and guidance.
Our community is full of people who want to help. We connect our girls with mentors who stick with them as their personal guide and friend throughout their experiences as a growing woman.

As a celebrated hair stylist, my brand IAME encourages individuals to know the essence of who they are, while also living in their truth.
