Phenomenal Women

It's that time of year again, back-to-school time :-). In June, S.T.A.R. Foundation concluded its 2013-14 program phenomenally! We had the pleasure of mentoring a phenomenal group of young ladies - traveling, meeting and collaborating with phenomenal women of community and service. Stay tuned for 2014-15!

Because of such, it's only fitting for us to open this newsletter paying tribute to and quoting the late, great Dr. Maya Angelou; a phenomenal woman who moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace.

Dr. Maya Angelou is a perfect example of someone who unabashedly followed her passions and lived a massively transformational life by doing so - touching billions with her poetic prowess, thoughts, ideas and knowledge.

Despite her passing, Angelou’s legacy will live on through her beautiful insight on the human spirit.

Continue to rest in peace, you phenomenal woman you! And may your undying strength, perseverance, confidence and words of wisdom continue to live on encouraging each and every phenomenal woman!

"Before I leave this world, I want to be able to say that I gave all that I could to leave a legacy of B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. young women who live Life Beyond The Norm." ~ Loretta A. Morman

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure attending the book launch of, “Hello My Name is B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L.,” hosted by Author, Loretta A. Morman.

Youth, young adults, parents, grandparents and community all came out to Christian Tabernacle Church located in Southfield, MI – lined up for purchase and autograph signing of the book in support of this “B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L.” movement. Click here to read more ...


We're Getting Pumped for Pink! #GirlPower


Join us on August 23rd from 1 - 4 PM at Pink Pump located at 309 S. Main Street in Royal Oak, MI, in support of the book signing, "Hello My Name Is B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L." hosted by Author, Loretta A. Morman.

“Social media has put added pressure on girls to look like a superstar all the time, and this makes them feel very insecure about their own looks.

Girls look at their social media accounts and begin to feel bad about their hair, weight, complexion or whatever. This constant comparison of their looks with other girls is causing many psychological and emotional problems – at alarming rates.

No one is perfect and the real issue is not what a person looks like on the outside, but how they feel about themselves inside,” says Morman. Click here to read more ...


Roar, That Girl Is On Fire!

Gracies Collage

What can I say!? 2014 has been a year of phenomenalness - phenomenal women!

This year, I had the pleasure and most honorable experience attending the 39th annual Gracie Awards held in Beverly Hills, CA.

The Gracies recognize exemplary programming created for women, by women and about women in all facets of media and entertainment, as well as individuals who have made contributions to the industry.

Women were not only honored for their commitment to media, but community and philanthropy:

Women are everywhere and women are doing everything! ~ Aisha Tyler
Caring is sexy! ~ Angie Harmon
I want to thank women in general … balancing careers and motherhood … Oh my god, it’s hard, so thank you! ~ Erika Christensen
