Ja'Myah's mom Jessy texted me to say that when she showed the photo to Ja'Myah, Ja'myah said, "Awww, Mama I look pretty." Those words alone let me know that I had done my job. After seeing her photo Ja'Myah gained a new sense of empowerment and confidence. To be able to give that feeling to future a queen so she can see and know who she is meant a lot to me.
