HUGE SUCCESS! 1YR ANNIVERSARY!

ALNP_anniversary_1yr1yr_anniversary_alnp

supporters_aladynamedpearlOn October 18th, at the Phillips Rush Center, a group of collective “Pearls”, celebrated their one year anniversary. Led by model, artist, speaker, Pearl Fils-Aime, founder of A Lady Named Pearl Leadership Academy, the event was inspiring.

In addition to providing information to the community about the programming and accomplishments throughout the year, three students gave presentations to the audience.

11 year old Gabrielle Green started with a presentation of her fashion line “Green Lemon Designs.”
She was followed by 10 year fashion designer Tsehai Smith, who presented six pieces from her line Re-Fried Jeans.
The presentations ended with De’Anna Liz of “The Naked Campaign”, a mental health awareness campaign.

STUDENT HIGHLIGHT: TSEHAI SMITH

Tsehai SmithTsehai Smith is a student at A Lady Named Pearl’s Leadership Academy. She is 10 years of age, and has started her own fashion line called “Refried Jeans.” She takes old jeans and create new fashions. These photos feature her bow ties as well as her purses.

At our academy we have our students write career development plans. One of Tsehai’s goals is to live in New York after high school, and while attending college, continue to build her fashion empire. One of the things we explain to the students is to be specific with your goals. In her paper, Tsehai, explained exactly what her store would look like, and how she would have a school to assist upcoming designers.

STUDENT HIGHLIGHT: DE’ANNA LIZ – THE NAKED CAMPAIGN

De'Anna Liz - The Naked Campaign

De’Anna Liz – The Naked Campaign

A Lady Named Pearl’s Leadership Academy is very proud of our student De’Anna Liz.

De’Anna is the founder and creator of “The Naked Campaign”, a mental health awareness campaign. In this photo, De’Anna utilizes modeling, art, and poetry to express her emotions regarding her experience being raped.

De’Anna explains “The reason why I decided to make the Naked Campaign is so that I could break my silence.  I was hurting, and I did not know how to let go, so I cut myself constantly, so I could feel. There were times when I felt too much, and times, when I didn’t feel at all, I was numb.”

1 out of 3 women experience some form of sexual abuse.

*Effects of Rape Victims of sexual assault are:

3 times more likely to suffer from depression.
6 times more likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.
13 times more likely to abuse alcohol.
26 times more likely to abuse drugs.
4 times more likely to contemplate suicide.

De’Anna’s plea:
Break your silence, become naked (vulnerable). What’s your story. Share it, email it to thenakedcampaign@gmail.com to be featured on the website and social outlets.
