Although she has many titles it seems the most appropriate one that comes to mind would definitely be humanitarian,although she is a national public art muralist, designer, and artist who's has decided to focus her talents on helping young women who's aspiring to reach their goals.The purpose of this amazing creation is to assist young women in local areas with several opportunities with the focus on mural arts and fashion design. The class will guide the girls through business basics as they work as a team to balance budgets, choose themes and produce their fashion lines which will be exhibited in a fashion show at a public event. The goal of the project is to give the girls a sense of ownership and pride as they express their creativity in a positive manner, while also learning professional, business, fashion, health and entrepreneurial skills.
