About PQS

Hello! My name is Shawntia and I am the founder & owner of Promise Quest Sisters. 

Promise Quest Sisters began while I was working with a nonprofit in Washington, DC. I created the group to help young ladies with their confidence, self-esteem, and to encourage kindness and love towards one another. After, our grant ended in December 2017, I noticed my daughters were having similar concerns and difficulties as the other ladies in the program.

After having conversations with my 8 year old daughter about increasing her confidence, and hearing my 4 year old daughter questioning her skin color, which she suggested a lighter skin color is better. I realized this has to change, and I want all three of my daughters to embrace who they are and a great way to do that is to wear it daily. So, we launched Promise Quest Sisters Apparel & Accessories for young ladies & women to inspire, motivate, and empower young ladies and women to love themselves, love others, increase their confidence, self esteem, and support one another as sisters. Promise Quest Sisters are infants, children, and women who promise to show love and kindness to themselves and others. During Life we are all on quest to find out who we are and we hope this line helps you in the process.

As a follower of Jesus Christ, I also wanted to instill the principles of loving others unconditionally even if you may disagree with their actions or beliefs. I hope you will join us on our journey to becoming a Promise Quest Sister and thank you again for supporting our Promise Positivity Zone.

Remember Promise to Love Yourself, Love Others, and Be Yourself. You are Confident, You are Strong, You are a Promise Quest Sister!
