Chef Keisha Bocage, who is the owner of Bocage Catering, took some time out of her busy cooking schedule to stop and show our ‘I’m Me Tour’ some major love! Tuesday, October 11th, the O’Donnell Middle School girls got to learn about what most women know how to do very well, which is, COOKING!
This past Tuesday (September 27th), our lovely #ODonnellGirls were in for a major treat! For the 4th installment of the ‘I’m Me Tour’, our girls didn’t have the pleasure of having one presenter, but three!
The ever so lovely, Jillian “JJ” Simmons, had the honor of being the third presenter for the ‘I’m Me Tour’! With the help of the foundation’s volunteers, the O’Donnell Girls got the chance to open up a little more this time around and share the feelings and thoughts on conflicts within the school their parents and peers.
4 years ago, she dominated her performances at the 2012 London Olympics. She earned her gold medal and was named the 4th USA all-around Olympic champion.
Exposure to sports and the fine arts help kids become more well-rounded individuals. It also increases their attention span, builds self esteem and helps further develop outside social relationships. But what about ballet? When you think of joining an after-school program or activity, most kids are involved in the more popular sports like football, basketball or cheerleading.
As part of the I’m Me Tour, JJ and her team made a stop to Sterling High School in South Park Houston. While there, the girls learned about beauty and style from beauty guru, Brandi Holmes. This included a how-to for a home made face mask. The tour stop closed out with the girls creating vision boards for their future goals and JJ telling them what it takes to succeed.
