About JJ

JJ is a proud mother to a beautiful six-year-old daughter. She uses her passion from the "mommy experience” to advocate for higher quality prenatal care in underprivileged communities. Although she has always had an innate desire to empower others, raising a daughter has deepened her desire to foster change in the lives of women, and inspired her to give birth to the I’m Me Foundation.

In keeping with her mission to create opportunities for positive social interactions and character-building experiences, the I’m Me Foundation provides tools to improve the the esteem and self worth of girls and young women. JJ is currently chronicling her own personal experiences from a past abusive relationship and the journey to healing in her book, “Without Bruises,” designed to give guidance to others who find themselves in harmful situations.

About The Foundation

JJ’s I’m Me Foundation provides positive social experiences, character building training and self worth through education and entertainment. With girls not being able to see many positives images on TV or the media, we felt their was a need to expose these girls to amazing, positive women in the community.

Through programs like JJ’s “I’m Me Tour”, young ladies in middle school and high school receive empowering messages of self-worth and what their value is to the world. The “I’m Me” Tour is designed to give the tools they need to challenge themselves in all areas of their lives including sessions on Health/Fitness, Beauty/Style, Goal Setting, Etiquette and more! JJ’s “I’m Me” Foundation also holds an annual event on World AIDS Day, MAKE ME OVER FOR THE CAUSE. There women received pampering while being educated on HIV/AIDS.

About The Tour

An empowering experience for girls! The “I’m Me” Tour is designed to give young ladies the tools they need to challenge themselves in all areas of their lives! Sessions on Health/Fitness, Beauty/Style, Goal Setting, Etiquette and more!

The beginning of the program starts off with a live DJ or video. JJ introduces herself as well as the wonderful panel of ladies that will conduct the breakout sessions. She speaks a little about the program and what will take place during the course of the day. The ladies will receive a passport and their breakout session assignments. Each class consists of a 30-45-minute session that will teach the following skills:

I’m Beautiful- Basic Hygiene, Skin Care, Self-Esteem builders
I’m Living The Good Life- finding your passion, setting goals, vision boards
