About the I Am Queen Program
The I Am Queen program was created in 2014 when the Youth coordinator of the Boys and Girls Club asked Ms. Ebony J to talk to her girls who would be graduating soon about self-esteem, decision making, and goal setting. The girls found the program to be helpful and loved her “Real Talk Approach.” Since then, the I Am Queen Program has been at churches and schools in the Midwest including Rothenberg Elementary, Bethel Baptist and Hughes Center.
