Asia Simone Kennard
Asia Simone Kennard was born March 20, 2006. At an early age Asia’s parents taught her the importance of being herself no matter what others said or thought of her. Asia has been on the high honor roll since the age of 5. Asia’s parents instilled in her “if you think it you can achieve it!” Asia is currently 11 years old in the 6th grade. At the age of 8 Asia was inspired by her mother becoming an entrepreneur and creating her own business. Asia wanted to do something that inspired other kids so she came up with a concept for her own t-shirt Line “Royal Kool Kids”.
Royal Kool Kids was created for children of every color to help build confidence, self esteem and as reminder that they all are smart, kool and royal. Asia was instrumental in coming up with her own logo, colors and the meaning behind RKK. On March 20, 2017 Asia launched her own natural lip gloss line “Prefect Lips”.
Asia is currently still working on the lip gloss so that it to can be Prefect for all princesses over the world, which she may have some for purchase at the event. Asia wanted children all over the world to shine and wear their crowns daily.
