SEXY BOSS BABE EMPOWERMENT MOVEMENT
Women were born with special traits and by nature, are the caretakers of humanity. It is up to us, as women to create the very necessary change in the world at this very moment. “Women Empowerment” is a buzz word right now, everyone’s talking about it. But what does it really mean? What are we empowering women to do? Are we going to use our voice to stand for something meaningful?
We live in a country with every convenience and luxury available to us no matter how rich or poor. If you have ever walked into a 7/11, you know that you have food, fruits, vegetables and water available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Many people around the world don’t even have access to clean water or food. As Americans, we have more privileges than many in this world.
Sometimes for women, there may be a glass ceiling in certain corporations or career paths, but America is a country where opportunity is possible. America is the one place in this world where you can start at poverty and create opportunity for success. It may require hard work, tenacity and grit, but it’s possible. I speak from experience as I’m a refugee that came to this country as a child. My family was on welfare, my mother didn’t speak English and clothes shopping consisted of other people’s old t-shirts, dresses and pants that we purchased at the Salvation Army.
Through time, we all learned to speak English. My mother took jobs in manual labor as a seamstress and one day fulfilled her dream of opening her own business. Through my hard work I was accepted to my dream college, The University of Southern California. By the time I was in my thirties I had helped CEOs run million dollar organizations. As a single female, I was earning a healthy six figure salary, three times the average U.S. median household income. In America, anything is possible.
My family and I left a country that was in the middle of a war in order to have a chance to live. When I was just 2 months old, my parents put me in a basket as they rode on mules through the desert to make our escape. We were lucky and among the few that survived and made it for a chance to start a new life. What we left behind haunts me to this day, a country filled with 300,000 to 400,000 orphans as a result of that war. Their options are limited, if any. My heart always pains for the innocent and the vulnerable.
Although we have much abundance in America, we also have problems in our country that affect our innocent and vulnerable communities. With the people and resources in this country, we are capable of taking better care of vulnerable demographics like youth that have limited support or have been abandoned. California has the highest rate of kids in foster care compared to any other state in the U.S. Los Angeles alone accounts for almost half. 1/3 of the homeless population in Los Angeles is attributed to former foster youth.
Foster youth are Americas orphans. If a child is not adopted by age 7, they are deemed “unadoptable,” bounce from foster home to foster home and never have the love and support from a family that they deserve. These youths end up in group homes and many become homeless on the streets by their 18th birthdays. Human traffickers target these youths. The future is grim for them and many times includes prostitution, forced labor, a life of crime and jail time behind bars.
Charity organizations like Love Never Fails, Angels Nest TLP and CASA create opportunities to help so this vulnerable demographic can have a chance at success in life. Love Never Fails helps those at risk or survivors of domestic human trafficking and supports them in creating a life full of possibilities. CASA is a program that appoints volunteers to be an advocate for kids in foster care so there are extra loving eyes on them. Angels Nest provides homes for former foster and homeless youth and puts them on a success plan and many go on to college and find jobs.
Sexy Boss Babe is not just about beauty products. Beauty products are our way of connecting with women. Right now, more than ever, women have a platform, an opportunity, but what are women going to say? If we don’t stand up for the innocent and vulnerable in our own communities, as a society, we will never care enough to help those in even worse circumstances in other countries. We think it's important to start at home first.
We have chosen our words very carefully and we choose to be a voice for the voiceless. We ask you to join our movement and use your voice to help raise awareness for foster youth and survivors of human trafficking. It's a linked demographic that nobody is talking about. Let’s start talking.
We believe in walking the walk, not just talking the talk. We are putting our money where our mouth is. With every purchase of Sexy Boss Babe products, we will donate to charities that support foster youth and survivors of human trafficking.
You wanted change, well, we are giving you an opportunity to be a part of creating meaningful change in America and maybe one day, the world. Be fierce, be bold, be empowered…be a Sexy Boss Babe and join the movement.
