MomsCanDoIt2 : For Moms, By Moms


MomsCanDoIt2 is a phenomenal organization that we here at Icons In The Now had to spotlight! We strongly believe in giving praise to local businesses that are creating change in their communities! That is why we had to spotlight this cause in this article. Founder and CEO, La'Sonya Alexander, is a pageant queen holding multiple titles in the CCP Organization, the American Elegance system and the All World Beauties System! On top of this, she is a mother of seven children, 6 sons and 1 daughter, as well as being a very active community service volunteer, and actress having appeared on "Empire", "Chicago Talent" and more! Philanthropy is near and dear to her heart, as not only a woman of generosity but a woman of EXCELLENCE!

MomsCanDoIt2 is a grassroots community organization that consistently implements time and effort to support and help single mothers in today's society. The vision is to construct, provide and deliver resources and opportunities for single mothers who've experienced hardships such as (but not only):
homelessness, physical abuse, rape, sexual assault, unemployment, loss of a Father figure, depression, PTSD, life tragedies, and more.

Through her organization, La'Sonya has been building relationships with single mothers through her clothing drives, workshops and volunteering! She believes doing this will give them the opportunity to enrich the lives of their children and change the quality of life of single mothers across the United States of America! As a single mother, she knows the struggles that come along with it and is using her power and resources to be of benefit to as many people as she can.

This is someone worth following and a mission worth supporting!

Anthony Amos: Artist and Creator

"I fell in love with drawing at 4-years-old. My mom introduced me to drawing as a creative outlet. Around 10, my grandmother enrolled me in art classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. I got into customizing shoes at 13 because my family couldn't afford to buy fresh kicks but twice a year. It was embarrassing, I hated waiting to be fresh. On a random day, I painted a pair of all-white Air Forces and they were a hit the next day at school. Art kept money in my pockets as a teenager." What do you do and why? I’m a visual artist and sneaker customizer. I create because it's a passion. How does what you do benefit others? My work helps people to define and express themselves in color & style. I also help my clients energize their workspace or homes with dynamic artwork.  Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now. I made the decision to be a career artist after I was laid off from a good job. During this time

Eliza Cole: Future Supermodel Extraordinaire

"My name is Eliza Cole, I am 20 years old from South Carolina, a true Southern Belle. I am a full-time cosmetologist with dreams and aspirations to be a full-time model. I competed in several local pageants as well as my high school pageant. When I was a Senior in high school, I was a Senior Model Rep for a local photographer. This is when the modeling bug hit me. I loved being in front of a camera where my fashion skills came out.  My goal is to be a catalog model, but if this does not work out, I would love to continue modeling as well as photoshoots."   What do you do and why do you do it? Currently, I am a Cosmetologist assistant and makeup artist. My plan is to one day be a full-time model, doing hair and makeup on the side. I started modeling locally through a photographer friend who suggested I try out for the local fashion shows. This led me to several local runway modeling opportunities. Modeling for me is all about the presentation, the presentation of hair, makeup,

Mia Ross: Budding SuperModel Wonder

  What do you do and why do you do it? My name is Mia Ross. The career I have chosen has been Modeling, I chose modeling because I absolutely love fashion. Creating art with my body is the ultimate self expression for me.  How does what you do benefit others?   Modeling helps others by providing a vision. It provides a fantasy for other to see themselves in a different light. My career is also great for creative expression. There are no creative limits in fashion. Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now. My career has been nothing short of a roller coaster. There have been many ups and downs but isn’t that the fun of roller coaster anyway? I have worked to find who I truly am through modeling. I have been denied more times then I would like to count but that’s what has made me the determined person I am now. I have shown myself I don’t take no for an answer. My journey has also shown me I have a drive to help others, this drive has lead me into being a fitn
