HER PASSION: THE TZONE FOUNDATION
"When I was young, I went through a very insecure time in my life. No matter how much self-esteem I have now, that girl still lives inside of me. Because of my struggle, I always felt that I had a calling to work with teens. There are so many pressures that come with being a girl, and I want to give young women the strength to succeed in our society in which there are so many difficult images to live up to. In 1999 I started TZone and took a group of girls for a weeklong camping trip in the mountains outside of L.A. In 2004 TZone became a national public foundation. We look for community-based organizations that encourage girls to be leaders, not followers. It gives me pleasure to help other people's dreams come true."
