There are very few young women out there who know better than Keshia Knigh Pulliam what being loved does for a young girl’s life.
So, the former Cosby kid is launching a new initiative to spread that love to girls who may not have gotten it otherwise. Her new non-profit, Kamp Kizzy, will bring together young girls from various backgrounds so that they can learn from each other, grow together and empower one another. The girls will also be taught through a curriculum that includes performing arts, sensitivity and cultural diversity training, team building exercises, creative writing, etiquette and public speaking.
“Adolescent girls are very impressionable and often lack self-esteem if not properly mentored,” Keshia explained in a statement. “It is my passion to empower these girls to think big, dream big and achieve big!”
Kamp Kizzy kicks off this Summer with a free two-day camp for 100 11-16 year girls, which will be hosted on the Spelman College campus in Atlanta on July 23 and 24.
Parents interested in getting their daughters involved can apply here.
