Miss Jackson State University 2012-2013 Sarah Brown will launch the “Love Yourself” Self Esteem Tour at the Career Development Center, Jan. 23 at 9 a.m. During the tour, which is part of the “Bigger Impact” component of her three-part initiative Think Big, Brown, along with Jackson State’s MADDRAMA Performance Troupe and D.J. T-Money, will visit local middle and high schools to speak to young ladies about “real life situations that they face everyday and how to overcome tough circumstances and be role models in their schools.”
“I am very aware of the issues that young ladies face in middle and high schools.” said Brown, a 2009 graduate of Forest Hill High School in Jackson. “And I want to share my knowledge and experiences with them in a way that will allow them to see the potential that is instilled in them. I have overcome a lot in my life – growing up without a father and watching my mother work really hard to take care of four children by herself. It was hard for me but I made it and they can too.”
The tour will make stops at Forest Hill High School on January 29, Hardy Middle School on Feb. 4 and Callaway High School on Feb. 27. Other stops are currently being arranged.
Brown is asking female citizens in the Metro Jackson area and other JSU students to join her and help make a difference in the lives of young ladies in middle and high schools. She’s also asking for donations to help purchase T-shirts that will read “JPS Girls Rock”.
