Tameka Raymond’s The Lost Ones Foundation hosted 32 at-risk teen girls to a 5 day retreat – “You Are Not Alone” at luxury resort Chateau Elan in Brasselton, Georgia right before the holidays.  Teen girls from all across the country submitted essays on why they were deserving to participate. In its inaugural year, the bi-anual retreat featured workshops and seminars on sexual and mental health, beauty and fitness, and spirituality and empowerment.

The retreat’s speakers included Minister Perri “Pebbles” Reid, TV Executive Tracey Baker Simmons (Shout out to my girl Tracey on her new show for MTV Sprite Step Off), personal trainer Kenya Crooks, Nichele Hoskins of Heart and Soul Magazine, Taneish Leslie Publisher of J’Adore Magazine, an abstinence coach, medical esthetician and many more.

Shot out to my homie Gail Hudson and her salon Myfavoritehaircare.com for making sure the girls hair was on point.

On the final day the teens were treated to a total beauty makeover and fashion shoot with some of Tameka’s celebrity stylist friends.  I have to say, I’m so happy to see Tameka doing something positive for teen girls. She really gave these girls an opportunity that they had never had before.
