Face Painter, Balloonist, Motivational Speaker, Teen activist

I begin volunteering to help in Englewood about 12 years ago.  Being that I was a troubled teen early on in my life, I wanted to give back. I have a Pastor Dr. Arnella Elizabeth Pierce (now Lewis) who reached for me on a regular bases. She is a former teacher at Bethel College, and always lived by reaching and helping others.  Dr. Lewis went above her pastoral duties to help me succeed.  Her theory worked, and I managed to go to college as well as give myself to others. I am now a  successful Face Painter but I often help non profits. I speak at events to help inspire our youth to be leaders. I teach them how to be ladies. I am currently helping the Owner of Longevity Barber Lounge. He has asked me to speak to ladies bi weekly.  We are also comming together to give a free Carnival/Fun in Englewood themed event for anyone who wants to come. We intend to have Peace circles, Prayer circles, Drink and Beverage, Live music, Poetry,Prayer,Back to School Give Aways and more! If your organization wants to attend or help in any way. Longevity Barber Lounge event will be August, 23, 2017. Please contact Lakeisha Walker (773) 440-0926 or Vanessa Williams at (773) 639-7708.  Thanks for your ears! If any youth needs a good church home my church is located at 127 north Leamington Ave (Revelation Outreach Ministries) I would be more than happy to greet our youth and sit with them in our service.
