“J.E.S.S.I.C.A. Cares brought new and creative ways in assisting the girls to see that they can be as successful as they see themselves. By virtue of empowering thought provoking exercises and engaging powerful discussions, this assisted in bringing the young ladies aspirations to a whole new level.” – Joann Bjornson, Executive Director, Family Promise of Morris County

Anela on the A.S.I.Y.A. Academy

“We have had difficulty creating a program that would serve the needs of teenage girls during out-of-school time. J.E.S.S.I.C.A. Cares accomplished our goal and exceeded our expectations with the B.R.E.A.K.T.H.R.U. N.O.W. Academy you offered this summer at the Teen Center. You offered a high quality program that met the needs of young teenage girls who are trying to find their own true voice & unique persona.”

Kathy Long, Director of Teen Pride, Inc.

“I was extremely impressed with your professionalism, as well as meticulouness of the comprehensive agenda developed for us, which resonated with our core values. At the onset of the program; most displayed a tough exterior, but by the end of each of your workshops it was evident that they were all inspired by you.” 

Curtis Williams, Manager of Sports Unite of the NY City Housing Authority

Your program helped me a lot, actually, whenever I feel down I think about the book you shared with us and lately there has been a lot of that. I just need to believe in myself more, that’s all. But I have written in the journal you gave us and it feels really good to put it on paper when I have no one to tell it to, so thanks!”

Asiya is the person I turn to whenever I am struggling within myself and I need someone to motivate me, she is amazing at comforting me and she gives me the best advice.”


J.E.S.S.I.C.A. Cares works diligently. They was able to take a few young ladies for a powerful empowering retreat. My daughter was able to go and thoroughly enjoyed herself. She even complimented Jessica’s spirit. She said, “Mommy, Ms. Jessica is really nice.” J.E.S.S.I.C.A. Cares has given my daughter her smile back for this summer and for that I am thankful.” 


You are by far one of the most inspiring people I have ever met.  I’ve grown to love your classes and all the sisters in the class have really impacted my life.  Thank you so much.”

Thank you so much for including me in your program. It really inspired me to see who I want to be. I even made a new vision board. I taped the affirmations on my mirror so every day I will see them. Thank you so much.”

On behalf of the Carettes, Inc. of Morris County, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your awesome and inspiring presentation of “Proper Etiquette.” It was nice to actually have you interact with the participants and present a topic that is lacking but much needed for our youth. We really appreciated the dos and don’ts of proper table setting and etiquette.” 

Malissa Hairston – Debutante/Esquire Committee

The J.E.S.S.I.C.A. Cares one day program was amazing and inspiring. The entire atmosphere of the program was warm and welcoming. The program kept my attention the whole time and not only was it life changing, but fun. Everything about the program was good and almost brought tears to my eyes. I would recommend this seminar to any girl, no matter her religious background, race or money situation. Ever since the seminar, whenever I feel a negative thought trying to come into my head; I ignore it and remember the lessons I learned that day.”
