About BAYA

Beautiful As You Are (B.A.Y.A) is a powerful movement that aims to empower individuals to recognize and embrace their unique beauty and self-worth. This initiative, founded by Tish, the proud author of self-esteem building curriculum and activity books, promotes the idea that everyone is beautiful just as they are.


B.A.Y.A encourages individuals to celebrate their individuality and embrace their strengths, quirks, and imperfections. Through workshops, seminars, and community events, Tish and her team inspire individuals to develop a positive self-image and cultivate self-love.


The movement's curriculum and activity books serve as valuable resources for schools, community centers, and various child-based organizations. These resources provide practical tools and exercises to help individuals build self-esteem, develop resilience, and navigate the challenges of life with confidence.


With Tish's dedicated efforts, the B.A.Y.A movement has gained momentum and touched lives all across the country. As recognition and demand continue to grow, Tish envisions B.A.Y.A as a global movement, spreading its message of self-acceptance, self-love, and empowerment to individuals of all ages and backgrounds.


The impact of B.A.Y.A is immense, as it helps individuals break free from societal pressures and expectations, encouraging them to love themselves unconditionally. Through this movement, Tish aims to create a world where everyone feels valued, appreciated, and empowered to embrace their true beauty, just as they are.

Everyone fits in here!


Beautiful As You Are is creating a world where young people can learn how to be better leaders, entrepreneurs, and servants with a high self-esteem and purpose.



The mission of BAYA is to encourage, inspire, and develop youth to find their inner voice; impacting families and communities everywhere.

The Original BAYA Girl and the Reason BAYA was Created!! 

The BAYA (Beautiful as You Are) Movement emerged as a beautiful outcome of Jasmine Fredericks deep pain caused by bullying, self-harm and other destructive behavior's. This organization is driven by a mother's unwavering love and a fierce response to the bullying her daughter endured.  With Jasmines permission and support her story is used to to help families dealing with similar issues.


Jasmine, who recently celebrated her graduation from Olivet Nazarene University with a double major in Psychology and Criminal Justice, is now thriving as a compassionate Program Assistant at the BAYA Corporation. Alongside this role, she spreads warmth and care as a dedicated Mental Health Tech at U of L Peace Hospital.


Drawing from the invaluable lessons and tools she gained while growing with the BAYA program, Jasmine passionately supports and uplifts other young individuals who share similar stories. Her heart, filled with empathy and understanding, shines bright as she helps these youths in their own healing journeys.
