Working as a Diva Ambassador for the self defense program created exclusively for women, Daisi’s duty is to raise awareness about domestic violence to women of all ages.The reigning Mrs. Ethnic World International 2012 (Jamaica) has been spending her year promoting her platform of "Legacy", empowering young girls and women to lead in the changes they want to create in their lives. For women who have been victims of violence this message is extremely important. “Most women have come into contact with some kind of physical or verbal assualt and/or abuse in their lives. Divas In Defense makes standing up for yourself more attractive and less conflicting with the image of being a woman,” says Daisi.
DIVAS IN DEFENSE MISSION
It is our mission to empower women of all ages with the training and tools imperative to their personal safety and the safety of their families. Through fun, instinctive learning; women gain the knowledge to protect and arm themselves while gaining confidence to be Fierce & Fabulous! Divas In Defense was started by two brothers raised by a single mother who was a victim of molestation and domestic violence. They are now fathers with daughters and significant others. They pledge to prevent the violence their mother faced to as many women and girls as they can. For More information about Divas In Defense
