I am the founder of Pretty With Purpose, Inc. Mentoring and Leadership Program for girls ages 12-19. I have a Bachelors in Pre-Law and the CEO of Whitebear Legal Service. This vision was instilled in me from the situations that I experienced throughout my life. I become pregnant at 15 and a mother at 16 years of age. I got kicked out and ran away from home multiple times as a teenager. I attend college with no direction and a tons of loans. As a whole we have collectively overcame experiences to give back to our young ladies, to encourage them to make better choices in life in wanting more for yourself. We are here to make a difference.

KENYA NELSON (ASSISTANT DIRECTOR)
Hi, I’m Kenya Nelson, a Licensed Masters Social Worker and blogger for Social Work on the Go. A few fun facts: I love to read, I’m an introvert, I have a life goal of making a difference and giving back on a local, national, and international level (hence the birth of Social Work on the Go). Anyways, I am superrr excited about what’s in store and glad to be apart of the impact that Pretty With Purpose will have on sooo many young girls!
We are committed as a team to make sure our community of girls have all the resources needed to be successful young ladies.
