Meet the Founder
“I believe in educating our teens at a young age about who they are, how their minds work, what healthy relationships look like, how to make good choices when it comes to peer pressure around drugs, alcohol and smoking, how to stop the negative self chatter, how to like what you see when you look in the mirror, making the decisions not to sext and so many other vital topics. Then, we will create a generation of smart, happy, powerful young individuals who in turn will contribute greatly to their local communities. This is why Beautiful Minds is my greatest passion.”
