Mrs. TaSheekia Harris, lives in Fort Myers. She's originally from Jacksonville, Florida.
Mrs. Harris had a humble upbringing and faced many challenges while growing up on public assistance. Not having the finances or resources to achieve her own goals, deepened her faith and gave her the strength to overcome life's obstacles.
Mrs. Harris attended FAMU in Tallahassee and worked her way onto a position traveling across the USA for photo shoots and modeling competitions. From 1996 to 2002, she appeared in several national and local hairstyles magazines and later directed modeling classes and conducted make-up artistry for the Barbizon Modeling School, Sears Model's Club, and The Studio on the Gulf.
Having overcome many obstacles and life experiences has given Mrs. Harris the ability to encourage positive growth in the lives of others. She has worked with youth and adults for over 20 years in the areas of healthy self-esteem, self-image, and proper social etiquette. Her enrichment program, Crowning Daughters for Success is taught in Lee County Public Schools, the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County, Out-of-School-Time Initiative plus, and various other youth organizations.
Mrs. Harris has been featured on several TV programs, and in local magazines and has won multiple awards for her work with Southwest Florida youth. She is a regular on Lee Pitts Live, a local talk show, where she reaches young girls and women with positive messages. She recently launched Girl Talk, a mini-segment on Lee Pitts Live, which motivates, directs, and creates awareness through relatable topical discussions and interviews.
She's also an ordained minister with over 20 years of experience. She uses multiple platforms and venues to empower, develop, and challenge others to be the best version of themselves. During speaking engagements, seminars, or one-on-one coaching, Mrs. Harris is in the business of changing lives for the better.

She is currently conducting a statewide Girl Power Empowerment for middle and high school girls.

We believe that every girl should have the opportunity to make a difference in life through embracing effective core values and positive character traits.
