Keshia Knight Pulliam: Kamp Kizzy

She may have been the first to go on ABC’s new TV hit Splash, but she’s among the best when it comes to promoting and executing the empowerment of young girls. Founder of the non-profit Kamp Kizzy, Keshia Knight Pulliam, known to countless households in the 80s as Rudy Huxtable on acclaimed sitcom The Cosby Show, created an organization with a mission in mind to inspire and help the modern girl navigate through a modern world. Through “a variety of workshops that include performing arts, sensitivity and cultural diversity training, team building exercises, creative writing, etiquette and public speaking”, the mission of Kamp Kizzy, a summer day camp, is to “bring girls together between the ages of 11-16 from all socioeconomic backgrounds to learn from each other, grow with each other and empower one another.”
