Angela Simmons Presents Pressure Makes Diamonds
Share for Life Program Initiative
Pressure Makes Diamonds (PMD) events include workshops and panel discussions on sensitive women issues dealing with low self esteem, domestic violence, mental and physical health, while providing access to educational information and resources to support each topic. Workshops engage and motivate participants to overcome their adversities by living a positive lifestyle where health and wellness is at the center. Our mission is to inspire, motivate and empower teenage girls and millennial women to develop a positive self-image, confidence, courage and knowledge to be successful and live a healthy lifestyle. The Pressure Makes Diamond vision is for Angela Simmons to use her platform to share positive information and resources to help girls and women build a healthy self-esteem, self-love, confidence and business knowledge by sharing her personal challenges and testimonies.
Great things are possible when a community comes together.
Making A Difference
Sharing Positive Information & Resources
We provide educational programs that address issues affecting marginalized communities in New York City through awareness, education, media projects, the arts, and personal and community development activities.
Our programs are tailored to help participants develop and maintain their leadership abilities, enhance critical thinking skills, make wise financial decisions, get involved in community activities and become prepared to enter the workforce.
By forming lasting partnerships, understanding the needs of the community and focusing our efforts and expertise on those areas where we can make a lasting difference, Share 4 Life has continued to innovate and develop new programs to meet the evolving needs of NYC residents living below poverty levels.
Realizing that visual stimulation is one of the most effective ways to communicate messages – particularly to youth – S4L fights for social change by developing supportive projects with creative campaigns: it infuses film and music with health awareness to warn people about the consequences of high-risk behavior and empower them to make decisions that will lead them to live safe, healthy and productive lives.
