 I’m an elementary principal and spin class instructor who definitely feels and has a passion to help others. I love helping educators students and my school community in finding their gifts. I also love being an uplifting empowering spin class instructor to give my members the best spin class experience each time to help them reach their fitness and health goals. I think a great charity would be local title I Schools tonayppiet their Why and help them to instill this early inminto children to Dream Big and find their why

My “why” is Circle of Sisterhood because all people were created in the perfect image of God and I think it i our jobs as women to help each other along. We all have it in us to be strong, independent, and successful. Those character traits will look different for each person, but it is my job as a women to empower and inspire other women to be the best they can be. I wear my bracelet as a reminder that I am a woman, that I am created perfectly, and that I will do whatever I can to empower and love the women around me!

#myWHYis Circle of Sisterhood. This organization helps build schools and break down educational barriers for women and and girls all over the world. When I wake up in the morning I am inspired by the amazingly ambitious girls who sit outside the classroom just incase they can overhear what the teacher says and learn something, anything. Often, girls are left out of the educational equation and it is the girls that continue to fight through the obstacles to be in a classroom that motivate me to go to my classes, absorb as much as possible and run with my knowledge.

Like Malala Yousafzai beautifully states, "One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world." Once you are taught, you can teach, and that is powerful.

When asked her Why of creating her Fearless Queens Mentoring Program, Arian replied,

"In all honesty, initially this was not something I wanted to do. I get stopped all the time by people asking me to mentor them and I say no because I know my schedule, and I take the time commitment of mentorship seriously. Then one day after a speaking engagement, a young lady by the name of Dasia approached me for mentorship. This happens quite often and again due to the time commitment I would have normally declined. I asked her was she willing to invest in herself? She said yes. So Instead of just directing her to my one on one session, which is $250/hour, after speaking to her she motivated me to come up with a cost effective group plan that would be for $100 each month that would include women coming together in a group session. Once we started the program and I witnessed the amazing testimonies, accomplishments and transformations that were happening in the lives of the women who signed up, they requested that I continue it. So the task weighed heavy on heart. I then asked myself “Arian Simone who are you to hold back on blessing all these people?”  So I knew it was my duty to continue. To Whom Much Is Given Much Is Required"
