Although she has always had an innate desire to empower others, raising a daughter has deepened her desire to foster change in the lives of young girls, and inspired her to give birth to JJ’s I’m Me Foundation. Her foundation encourages at risk middle and high school girls to be the best version of themselves, by exposing them to leaders and influencers in the community who provide career development, lifestyle planning, health and wellness training, and character education. Simmons, a survivor of an abusive relationship, has authored a book entitled Without Bruises that chronicles her journey from hurt to healing. JJ also tours high schools and colleges with her #THATSNOTLOVETOUR where she sheds light on the often-missed signs of emotional and mental abuse, giving young people the tools cultivate healthy relationships.
