Starshemah Duncan, the creator, and founder of We Are Beautiful Outreach Programs, Inc was developed due to the increased need of young girls/women who struggle with their self-esteem and perspective of who they are. Starshemah developed the group, We Are Beautiful Self-Esteem because of her struggles as a dark-skinned girl it followed her into her adulthood which caused a lack of self-esteem and an inability to see herself fearfully and wonderfully made according to God’s purpose for her life.
In August 2022, We are Beautiful Outreach Programs, Inc was established out of a growing need to provide quality mental health and mentorships to develop healthy self-esteem. The concept of the organization was based on the motto “Cultivate the Beauty Within” which means to assist each young girl or lady to begin to embrace the beauty within them. For example, learning to love the qualities or characteristics that make us who we are and accepting what we perceive as flaws or weaknesses restructuring into strengths or beauty that makes us beautiful inside and out.
