Relating to kids & Their Issues
Sharing life experiences of growing up in the inner cities
Marilyn grew up in East-New York, Brownsville, in Brooklyn, Harlem, and Bronx New York. Al Sharpton Played a vital role in her life as a mentor, helping to shape who she would become in her later years. Her family later relocated to Connecticut where she was able to discover her purpose and learning why she and her brother endured the tragedy of growing up in an environment stacked against them.

As an advocate and counselor, it is essential that we help parents stay involved in what their children are doing.  Marilyn’s non-Profit Dolls with a Mission, the program opens up opportunities to keep kids away from violence, drugs, & alcohol, which continue to plague our communities. is a mission-based program that also gives out resources to help kids start businesses. She encourages and speaks about kids and Entrepreneurship opportunities and resources that are available to help each child become business oriented today. Marilyn continues to raise the spirits of communities through parent involvement by contributing to a program such as this that is working to build confidence and self-esteem in each child that listens to her.


What My Purpose & Mission

More About Me:

 Marilyn influence lives through her Doll Academy & Gallery where she teaches kids ages -6-17 how to make cloth dolls on sewing machines donated by individuals who saw the need to support in keeping our kids safe and off the street. The children have the opportunity once their dolls are completed to either keep them or sell them as they hang in the doll gallery for others to see. The proceeds once sold belong to the children. This assists in building pride and facilitates a learning atmosphere to succeed and learn about business opportunities for kids. This is what sets this program apart from all others. Marilyn Also spends a portion of her time going around to schools, churches, Juvenile detention centers, group homes, where ever there is an open door she is there to impact the lives of our kids to achieve and succeed.  You will always find her looking out for the interests of kids and a place to showcase their Business for Kids annual Expo.
 Marilyn states “I have never heard a child saying to their mother, “Mom when I grow up I want to be a drug addict and sale drugs on the street for a living”. Nor have I ever heard a child say they want to be a prostitute and sell their body on the street for money to earn a living”. When real life shows up it is too late to talk about teaching our children the foundations of life. It is up to us to speak into the lives of children if we are going to save them from those inner voices of discouragement and disillusion. The important thing is to keep our kids focused. Marilyn’s mission is to generate an environment where kids can be inspired to discover and birth out those hidden gifts and talents that lay dormant on the inside of them.  Marilyn inspires that inner voice of success to come forth and empower those dreams waiting to burst out.  My strategy is to provide a way out of our inner cities, issues and problems through lending a helping hand to inspire and make a difference one kid at a time.  I hope parents will join me in formulating this extraordinary journey together as we embrace and impact lives as a community and safe haven for kids.
