Her programs serve inner and outer-city students and help them succeed academically by giving them the ability to choose something positive. Her mission has been to motivate, help and challenge children and develop skills that will help them in the future.

Ms. Edwards has written, directed and produced more than 5,000 plays and shows that contain messages about positive attitude and goal motivation. She has produced and created over 5,000 episodes for Evanston Community Television (ECTV) and is very active with youth programs at Faith Temple Church of God In Christ in Evanston.
