About us

For 12 years I have suffered from acne and low self-esteem because of how people saw me from my physical appearance. Often times I would wish God could just allow me to show people that I actually have a good heart although my face is not as flawless as other people. Or how I would wish people viewed beauty through the lens of a person’s interaction with people than how flawless their skin looks. I wonder what would change if our eyes would really be opened, if we could see the depth of a person’s heart and mind, instead of ever-changing physical body. I wonder how many women would start believing in themselves and their abilities without having to worry about how the society will deem them as ugly because of pimples that decided to grow on your face.! I love how the bible defines a beauty of a woman: “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised, honour her for all that her hands have done”. (Proverbs 31:30-31a) From learning how I have suffered myself, that is when I decided that it has to end with me, I never want to see or hear another woman with a low self-esteem or confidence in my entire life, and HeartOfPearl foundation was conveived! 

HeartOfPearl is a non-profit organization that was formed in an effort to raise awareness about the negative impact acne skin condition has on sufferers and family members, to support and to dispense charitable funds to assist with treatment-related expenses.

                         OUR MISSION

We aim to help women embrace the beauty that is in their heart and soul, knowing that beauty isn’t only in the appearance.
