KISS (Konfident, Independent, Strong, Sexy)

Cammie Hilliard, M.D. established KISS with the hypothesis that this program would reduce teenage pregnancy rates through peer-mediated education and empowerment of girls to be “Konfident” (secure in themselves), Independent (make their own decisions), Strong (not allow themselves to be coerced) and Sexy (comfortable in their own skin). The idea is to allow positive self expression through fashion and to educate/empower through teaching/outreach sessions.
