Lead by program founder and director Miss Sonya, Ladies of Beauty is a mentoring program designed to teach life skills to young ladies in middle and high school in Greensboro NC, and surrounding areas. Ladies of Beauty helps young ladies who exhibit low self-esteem, lack of peer interaction, and motivation. The ladies are able to express their feelings, thoughts, and worries through workshops, mentoring one-on-one, and group activities. The program assists the ladies on how to suppress the obstacles in their lives by allowing them to express their vision towards their dreams.

Several individuals provided Ladies of Beauty with their time and service to make the fashion show a success. Ritz Costumes, Sister Selling Socks, Soc Threads, Behind the Scene Event Planning, Mrs. Raynell Cole, Ms. Sunshine Williams, Prosperity Styles Hair Salon, and Anointed Hands Beauty Salon.

Sonya says she is focused on impacting the lives of youth in her community by helping the young ladies achieve their highest God-given potential and making them better individuals and citizens. “I encourage the young ladies to discover their dreams, to believe their future holds endless possibilities and empower them to make it happen,” she says.

pcoming events the Ladies of Beauty will participate with include feeding the homeless at the Greensboro Urban Ministry in November, Triad Health Project Winter Walk for AIDS in December, their 2nd Annual Mind Body Soul 5k Walk/Run in April 2013.
