The late and brilliant Frederick Douglass said, "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." This quote resonates with Vanessa because she understands that if young people believe in themselves at an early age, they will be better equipped to avoid many pitfalls that adults face.
Vanessa's mission is to empower youth in the area of their self-esteem by showing them that they are champions, phenomenal kids, and have the ability to be successful while having a great impact on the world. When she pours into young people, she is pouring into tomorrow's leaders.
