As a child , Rasheda Kamaria was bullied and harassed. Despite her personal setbacks, Kamaria became the first to graduate high school and college with honors. With her education and skills, Kamaria helps shift adolescents from becoming victims to victors. As the founder and chief empowering of Empowered Flower Girl (EFG) organization, she helps mentor and motivate pre-teens to exceed their own expectations.
She works with school administrations and communities to create solutions for cyberbullying, inter-racial bullying, aggression and drama between middle/ high school students. Kamaria also sets up workshops to help heal emotional wounds that have stemmed from bullying.
