5 I's Value Statements

Our Program

 We offer free classes and workshops to young girls, ages 8 to 13, centered around helping them develop and enhance their self-worth. During our classes and workshops, the girls participate in various activities and crafts centered around our 5 keys.

Our Story

"We can't control how others treat us, but we can control how we treat ourselves."

The Shimmer Sparkle Shine Project (SSSP) was founded in 2011 by Ciara Mosquito, in Northglenn, Colorado. Ciara was severely bullied by her peers in Middle School, so eventually, when she re-grasped her sense of self-worth, she wanted to help girls avoid the feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt that she had to deal with at their age.
