The PeekABoo PrettyGirl Foundation | Pretty Powerful Program

Every woman has a story to tell, and while we can only hope that these stories are full of loving happy memories, we know that life gets tough! That’s why The PeekABoo PrettyGirl Foundation, Inc. was founded by Jessica Tee and Kindra Moné in 2012 to ensure that women are provided with opportunities for self care no matter where they are in life. We know that the more a woman values herself, the more value she'll add to society. When we invest in our girls, we give them the power to choose their own personal and professional destinies. 

Aside from her nonprofit ventures, Jessica is an English teacher at Richland Northeast High School. She also enjoys reading, yoga, traveling, jewelry making, and living life. She plans to spend the rest of her life helping young girls and women reach their highest potential. 

Kindra currently lives in NYC and has worked for well-known publications and fashion brands. She currently manages a women’s coworking space and is the editor-and-chief at The Styling Soul.
