ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Stacey McKenzie is one of the most recognizable faces and voices in the fashion industry. Self-trained as a model she has been a staple on numerous covers, pages and runways of top fashion magazines, fashion designers and major brand campaigns. While going back to the communities she came from to visit and speak to the youths, she realized the importance of helping these young people build their self esteem, recognize their talents/gift and go after their goals with confidence. She took sometime off her career and created The Walk Camp, a free 2 week camp for girls 12-16 years of age. The camp started in Toronto Canada and is also now in her country of birth Jamaica.
"When girls confidence and self-esteem improves they realize their potential within themselves; they discover their many gifts and talents and will be empowered and inspired to pursue their dreams and goals despite their circumstances" Stacey McKenzie
