Mission Statement

The purpose of this organization is to help disadvantaged women and their families pursue their education, career or personal goals, and milestone events with financial and clothing support by partnering with local agencies, churches , and other community support and mentoring networks that uphold family values giving them the tools necessary to succeed.

Description

This organization was named Seashells and Pearls, and founded on the premise that real seashells and pearls come from different countries, beaches, and areas of the world. They are all very beautiful and truly unique. The pearls are extremely precious and worn as adornment and a sign of achievement in many cultures. I intend to take these values and instill them in others to help them not only succeed in their life endeavors, but also feel beautiful about themselves and their accomplishments. Pearls are essentially the experiences and words of wisdom from mentors helping others, while the Seashells represent the action steps necessary to reach and maintain continued success. I intend help other women as I have myself been helped along the way for which I am truly grateful. People often ask me how I feel about my struggles going back to school at this stage of my life. I tell them that it seemed at first like an impossible endeavor with many obstacles including the lack of finances, and family commitments. However, I overcame these difficulties by surrounding myself with a stable network of support systems that help me to learn, grow, and become stronger by participating, and giving of myself to help others through committed, involved interaction with other community members. "We are all just mermaids on the beach collecting the seashells and pearls with which to fill our treasure chests."
