It is not uncommon to to see community members ranging from Lawyers, Entrepreneurs, Community Educators, Survivors and MSK graduates joining our classes. We encourage and invite guests to share their stories.
Our organization focuses on young ladies ages 12 to 21. Established in 2014, we have reached thousands of youth in Wisconsin and beyond using poetry performances and writing exercises to address various traumas, challenges and issues that all too often distract our youth from becoming their best self. We focus on similarities more than differences. We encourage all of our students to share their stories, find their voice and be heard in a positive way. We offer a way to stay connected through our Incentive Programs which include our Mother & Daughter Pajama Party, Dream Big Spa Day and our F.I.R.E. Awards (Females In Recognition of Excellence).
