I believe that it has changed the way participants look at life. Mrs. Hall is a positive female role model that many need. It was fun and informative! “ ~Danecha, 2008 First Crown & 2009 Rising Rhinestone "LaQuisha Hall and her Queendom T.E.A. girls are wonderful. I had the opportunity to sit down with LaQuisha and her girls and conduct a workshop. I got a chance to get to know LaQuisha and experience first hand the transformation of the girls involved in Queendom T.E.A. LaQuisha is a wonderful role model and example of thriving after trauma, and being all that you can be. This is a vital program that needs to be supported and expanded.” ~ Dr. Patti Feuereisen, Director of Girlthrive, Inc. Author of Invisible Girls: The Truth About Sexual Abuse
  12. 12. Testimonials “I had an awesome experience! This experience opened my eyes; it is a lot more involved than I thought it would be. In a short amount of time, I saw the change in the girls. The girls appreciated me and I was able to successfully develop a repoire with them. I am an elementary school teacher. This experience showed me that teens want a relationship with a mentor—teens are just as clingy! Queendom T.E.A made me feel needed and important as a volunteer. I feel like I was a part of something that I truly enjoyed!” ~ Mrs. Latesha Blue, 2008-2009 Volunteer & 2011-2013 Mentor "Coming from the heart: I love Queendom! It has shown me how to be a young lady and deal with my problems in more ways than one. I look up to the women that help us and hope that I can be in their shoes one day too. Queendom is a backbone for most young ladies. It teaches you to be confident and love yourself no matter what others think. I have been with Queendom for three years and I hope to become a mentor in my freshmen year of college. I want every young lady to have the pleasure of having someone in their life that can make a difference like I have had.“ ~Tanaja, 2009 Rising Rhinestone - 2011 Priceless Pearl
