Keshia has been a role model for generations of young girls. Her continued public presence both on and off the big screen has given her the platform to influence all those who see her. Recognizing the absence of positive imagery of young girls for young girls, Keshia felt compelled to establish a non-profit foundation such as Kamp Kizzy to empower their spirits. Having attended both Foxcroft, an all girls boarding school in Middleburg, Virginia and the prestigious Spelman College in Atlanta, GA she knows first hand the gravity a positive women can have on the life of a young girl.
Taking the hands on approach to improving her community from her years as a Bonner Scholar to volunteering at Hosea Feed the Hungry, service is something that has long been close to Keshia’s heart. She has consistently donated to numerous community service foundations in various facets (rather by time, celebrity, monetarily, or goods.) With the development of Kamp Kizzy Keshia has made a commitment to remain an active participant in the lives of young girls.
