I Am Still Somebody™ is the teen mom mentoring program that we are building to help Encourage, Empower and Equip Teen Mothers to be Greater Women and Greater Mothers. We will be teaching them the life skills necessary to be successful in life while making sure they understand the importance of completing their education. While we are still working on our 501(c)(3), we will launch in 2018 and we also have published books that will be beneficial to young mothers.
As a former teen mom myself at the age of 15, I remember what that journey feels and looks like. Even though these young ladies are not in the best of circumstances, they also need to be told that it’s not their end destiny. As a college graduate and business owner, I stand alongside every one who still believes in these young others. GREATER is in their future if they put in the work.
There’s A Jewel In You (#TAJIY) is an anthology series of women sharing the truth of their stories as young mothers. Volume 1 was released on September 1, 2017 and volume 2 is scheduled to release in Spring 2018. We are looking for 12 women who became mothers between the ages of 31-21. We are applications now thru November 30th. If you would like to share your story, then this is the perfect opportunity! We will only be selecting 12 women for this project so don’t delay in submitting your application.
Check out our 2017 EPK for Volume 1 as well as our virtual event. The Truth About Teen Pregnancy. We have shipped our books to Jamaica, New Zealand, South Africa and countless teen mom programs in the U.S. This is not just a book but it is a movement.
