Monique's story

I'm Monique Mitchel. I was raised on the westside of Chicago, Il. in a rough neighborhood. People were always belittling and bullying each other. robbing, killing, stealing, and gang banging. Unity and love were scarce. Luckily my block was full of love. Kind of like a family. The love I received and learned to give fuels me to provide products to promote self-love, motivation, and peace. I have lost countless friends to violence. The girls and women living in poverty endure slut shaming, belittlement, rape, and beatings. Enough to make anyone hate who they are or where they come from. I started a mentoring program and one of my former members committed suicide in September 2018. It really lit a fire in me to do and be better in my life and businesses. People suffer with their love for self and others. I love people! I want them to feel good about themselves and others! I love hats so I thought what better way to get out expressions of love and encouragement than to put them on hats! I hope to create enough revenue to restart my mentoring program as a non-profit organization! I am a single mother of 5. I want to teach them and others to love themselves and others as God does.
