Own Your Peach Inc. is a U.S. tax exempt nonprofit organization under category 501(c)(3). Our mission is to encourage and advocate for young girls and women to abstain from sex until marriage; giving biblical, moral, health, and personal support. We accomplish our mission through our 3 Pillars: Purity, Personal Development, and Philanthropy. We have a vision to see young girls and women (ages 10-20) become the best versions of themselves, despite the grueling messages from society that promote otherwise. We seek to accomplish this goal many ways which include, but are not limited to: community involvement such as mentoring, volunteering, educational and empowerment workshops and seminars, social outings, book clubs, and more. Mentoring is a vital component of our program because studies show that children and adolescents who have a mentor relationship function better emotionally, academically, and socially.
Own Your Peach was founded in Houston, TX, by Mia D. Creswell during the final semester of her undergraduate career. Although she was preparing to obtain a degree, which is an accomplishment within itself, she believed she still lacked vision and purpose in her life. After prayer and ‘soul-searching,’ Mia came to the realization that her passion involved and being a change agent for girls and young women. She remembered the pressures and mixed messages she received from society regarding her identity and sex outside of marriage. She decided it was time to become an advocate for and to encourage other young girls and women to allow God to lead them in all aspects of their lives. Including, encouraging them to walk in purity. Mia is in the final stages of completing a Master of Social Work degree which will further equip her, through Own Your Peach, to meet the complex needs of the community of girls and women in which she is involved.
Mia lives by the motto: “Work to become the best version of yourself!”
