Who is Alesha, might you ask?

“It takes a village”…. May seem cliché’ but I believe that the impact of the community is so important in the lives of every child. Growing up in Prince George’s (PG) County and attending PG county public schools made a huge impact on the adult I’ve become. It was put on my heart to give back to the great community that raised me and to support the generations that follow. That’s why I chose to host Once Upon a Gown. I am a graduate of Bowie High School, an alumni of Florida A&M University, who graduated Summa Cum Laude in Business Administration.  I am currently enrolled in the Event Management Certificate Program at George Washington University to pursue (yep you guessed it) my passion in Event and Production Planning. 

Why did I choose to host this event?

My passion for giving back is beyond words.

I've been blessed in so many ways and continue to search for opportunities to be a blessing in someone else's life. That's just it...Once Upon A Gown puts the limit of lack of funds to a halt. This event will give a student who may not be as fortunate the opportunity to attend in style at no cost. So yes, if you need that support come on out and enjoy. I want you to leave feeling powerful! When you look great, you feel great!
