Arielle Elizabeth Allen
Arielle Elizabeth Allen is not only my God-daughter, whom I’ve know all of her life, but she has worked with the Sapphire Butterflies Organization assisting and helping organize several events for the orphans at the De Pelchin Center every Saturday since June 2006.
She’s very gifted as a Ballet dancer, Praise dancer, Mentor and has assisted me in teaching Praise dance to the young girls at Southwind Baptist Church, which, my son is the Pastor.
Arielle was a GREAT mentor for those that had low self-esteem by encouraging them with praises and always attentive to their personal needs.
She would motivate the teenagers by dancing along with them and bringing some into the home of her mother, where she once lived, to help them with their appearances by touching up their hair because some couldn’t afford to go to the beauty salon and just giving GODLY advise to some young girls that needed to hear a word from someone on their level.
Because of Arielle’s involvement with these teens, Sapphire Butterflies Organization has gained respect for Arielle’s confidence and respect that she has given these teens. Her self-less ways and always putting others first has allowed the youth at Southwind Baptist Church to understand what giving of yourself is all about.
