People wonder why charity is so important to me when I own The Queen of Dating, "a dating company". I grew up privileged and never knew how hard it could be for children until I started teaching in low income schools at 20. I spent 10 years of my life buying students food, clothes and bus tickets. It was important to me that the students felt loved even if they didn’t have a lot. When I started The Queen of Dating, I decided I was going to always give back. I even have one former student on my cell phone plan! However, I didn’t feel like I was doing enough outside of helping former students. So the mission and my goals for the company have changed in the past year. Although the majority of my days are spent with clients and planning singles events, I also have been doing more and more events that highlight different charities. What better way to bring people together to mix and mingle than a charity event? So as you can see from my very packed schedule of events in December (2 of which are completely charity driven), I want to continue my tradition of giving and I hope I can continue to inspire those around me, as well as my clients to support my efforts to help those less fortunate. Happy holidays and I hope to see you at some of my upcoming events!
