Our Mission: To inspire and encourage young girls to love themselves and each other through the art of positive self-expression. This is accomplished through weekly workshops which involve writing exercises, open forum expression, and positive interaction in a group setting.Generally we conduct 8 to 16 week workshops in Middle Schools and High Schools although we can customize our workshops to fit your specific needs. MSK has also conducted Staff Development workshops, Keynote Speaking and Adult Workshops in Universities, Correctional Facilities and Conferences.

F.I.R.E. Awards (Females In Recognition of Excellence) 2018
MY SISTA’S KEEPHER (MSK) HOSTED IT'S THIRD ANNUAL F.I.R.E. AWARDS My Sista’s KeepHer (MSK) honored seven trailblazing women and six students, nominated by the community. The formal fundraising celebration included a red carpet, paparazzi, a variety of live entertainment, dinner and more. All funds raised go to support MSK's workshops and incentives for young ladies and women in Milwaukee and the surrounding communities. Milwaukee tops the list of many undesirable statistics, however, on this night we proved more than a few things. First of all there are many women, young and old, who deserve to be celebrated in our city. Second, we are a city of survival, inspiration and triumph. Lastly we proved that for three hours on June 24th, 2018 people put religion, race and economics aside to come together. They dressed up in their formal wear, they laughed and cried. They Loved and they listened. They were healed and recharged. At the end they linked arms, even the men in attendance, and proclaimed I AM MY SISTA'S KEEPHER HER HER HER We believe “When you stand and share your story in an empowering way, your story will heal you and your story will heal somebody else.” - Iyanla Vanzant. Poetry is the tool used to foster positive self-expression and self-discovery. We have empowered over 1,000 young women in middle and high schools throughout the metro Milwaukee area.
