“I am very happy and pleased to have a very giving young woman mentor our students at Millikan Middle School through Jennifer Payne’s Star Foundation. We are a middle school in the San Fernando Valley which caters to students interested in the performing arts. As a counselor I have placed 25 students to explore contemporary issues with Latoya and guest speakers. The girls have really enjoyed meeting Latoya, and the interesting guest speakers she brings to the meetings. Also, the group will include field trips, and a culmination fashion show.” ~Marlene Wasserman- Counselor at Millikan Middle School
“Latoya is an instrument of healing and help in the lives of traumatized women. She has helped me recover. I really have recovered!” ~Dorothy G. - Participant at Downtown Women's Center
“I have worked with Latoya (Latti) since 2008 with S.T.A.R. Foundation on many of our projects. Latti is compassionate, reliable, and dedicated. When we needed someone to oversee our mentoring program for teenaged girls, Latti was the first person we thought of, and the last person we had to turn to as she wholeheartedly accepted the challenge, and continues to successfully fulfill this task. Latti is an asset to the community, and I recommend her and her services for any organization.” ~Jennifer Payne- Founder of S.T.A.R Foundation
“Latoya’s commitment to The Downtown Women’s Center and the ladies they serve has been nothing short of spectacular. Her creativity and dedication has mentored women in need and she has been a vital contributor to the economic growth and education of an underserved population. The women and staff of DWC are honored and greatful that Latoya is part of their community.” ~Dena Younkin- Product & Merchandising Senior Manager
“Latoya is a volunteer for the non-profit org I run, KnockOuts for Giving (KO4G). Since day one, Latti (as we call her) has been a tremendous asset to our organization. I can honestly say I have never seen her without a huge smile from ear to ear-she instantly brightens the days of those we work with and those we help with her positive energy and her huge heart. I have counted on Latti for so many things and she has never let me down and always performed above and beyond what is expected. She has taught boxing lessons with KO4G to blind children, foster children, homeless women and troubled teens. Latti has done so much for KO4G, it’d take me pages and pages to write it all out! I am so grateful to her for all that she has done for our organization. She has helped countless people. Latti is one of the kindest persons I have ever known.” ~Pattianna Hooratian- Founder & President of KnockOuts for Giving
