About

Hi friends and potential investors,

I need your help. I am trying to create a pole studio whose goal is to empower girls and women of all ages. I found pole over five years ago, and it saved my life on more than one occasion. A couple years prior, I was raped by my best friend. I was so grateful that the pole world provided me with a safe and supportive space for me to heal and grow. During a competition routine, I performed a piece, highlighting that experience. 

Girls and women today have so many body image issues to overcome and I want to share my love of pole with them to help them love themselves. There will be a separate space for minors and one for non minors. I'd also like to have classes dedicated to pre, current and post menopausal women who are struggling to feel sexy again. 

There is nothing quite like my vision in the Atlanta area. Any donation is greatly appreciated! Thanks for your support!

Risks and challenges

Right now I do not have the money to do this on my own. I wish I did. This money will help us to rent a space, pay utilities and insurance as well as instructor salaries. It will also help to conduct background checks which will be important to those working with the girls. I will need to assemble a dedicated team willing to assist me as well.
