"Pampering Communities with Love"
About the Founder
Markevia Hawkins entered into the foster care system in 1998 at the age of twelve and aged out of care at the age of twenty-two. While in care Markevia was involved in many community extracurricular activities and was a teen advocate for youth in her community and also served as Vice President for the VA Youth Council for foster youth in Richmond, Va.
Markevia has been an educator for 9 years and currently teaches in the Alexandria City Virgina, Public school system. She completed her Bachelors of Arts at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, NC and her Masters in Elementary Education at American University in Washington, DC. In addition to teaching, she reaches out into the community to encourage self-beauty and confidence to young ladies. Currently she is also working on a children’s book series, where a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to find to help find a cure and treatment for Premature diseases such as Narcotizing enterocolitis (NEC), this is a disease that her first born son died from. Markevia was placed on bed rest due to a ruptured membrane at eighteen weeks; she had to leave her full-time job as an elementary school teacher. Life as she knew it was in complete disarray. During her eleven weeks on bed rest at home and the hospital, she would often get lonely and miss her daily life; as a result, Markevia thought of ways to provide services to mothers who have been placed on bed-rest. After she returned home and after many months of planning, Glam Moms came to fruition with the sole purpose of brightening another mother’s day.
Inspired by experience in foster care, working with youth and the passing of her first son has inspired her to create these unique programs.
