Sherese and Asia are a force to be reckoned with.
In this life we cross paths with many people. I’m so grateful that I’ve been allowed the privilege to cross paths with one of the most powerful dynamic duos you’ll ever meet. Sherese Payne and 13 year old Asia Kennard are the founders of A Queen and Her Princess.
I met Sherese and her beautiful daughter Asia in 2017 at The Girls Entrepreneur Expo that I host annually. Asia attended as a participant and we connected from there. They are such a strong representation of a powerful mother and daughter bond. The ways in which they’re inspiring mothers and daughters world-wide is second to none. I’m so happy that they’ve taken time from their busy schedules to join us in the Girl Talk Suite!!!
Please share with us the mission and purpose of A Queen and Her Princess brand.
To build and maintain stronger mother and daughter relationships by equipping them with the correct tools to apply to their relationships.
Our mission is to serve all mothers who are raising daughters. Our goal is to ensure that mothers are uplifting their daughters and that daughters are respecting their mothers.
What inspired you to create it?
What inspired me to create A Queen and Her Princess was one, my daughter. Also back in 2012 I went through a deep depression and every day I saw my daughter I know I couldn’t give up on life. So God spoke to me and said there is lack in our community of mother and daughters relationships because of social media and reality TV. You have to show that there are strong bonds with mothers and daughters in the community. So, I knew it was time that we create something for other mothers and daughters teaching them about mother daughter relationships and how to maintain them. In 2015 A Queen and her Princess was birthed by the grace of God and me moving on Faith.
Sherese: Asia has so many positive traits that we admire. Which of her attributes do you love the most?
You’re right there are so many things that I love about Asia! However; the one that stands out to me is the way she treats others no matter their age or skin color. I love how she respects others and shows joy for everyone for her to be such a young girl.
Asia has been this way since a very young age and we all know most kids are mean to other children as well as adults but that was never Asia. She is the one who will be everyone’s friend!
Asia: Your Mom is literally SuperMom. LOL She has a ton of amazing qualities as well. What do you love the MOST about her?Asia: Your Mom is literally SuperMom.

My mom is the supermom of all moms! What I love most about her is she never gives up even if she is told “No” she still will figure it out no matter how long it takes her.
Others don’t see her struggling and she won’t let them but I’ve seen it and know but no matter what she still do everything with a smile including raising me. She pushes me to be better than her daily!
You both are powerful as a unit but I know that’s because each of you are strong and powerful also as individuals.
The next individual project that I’m working on is my, Look At Me One Day Conference.
At this conference, women are fighting to become the woman who God truly called them to be it will take place on September 8 2019 so be on the lookout for that and tickets are on sale now. Unfortunately, I can only host 40 women so get your tickets now. I’m also working on doing more speaking engagements.
Royal kool kids is to let children know that they can be kool, smart and Royal at the same time.
You just don’t have to be one we can be all 3 plus more. No new projects for me. I’m just working on preparing for eighth grade and enjoying my summer this year with no summer camp just fun with my friends and trips with family.
My daughter Daria and I were humbled and honored to have been a part of your amazing Masquerade Ball. We know that it’s only up from here!
Of course our annual luncheon which will be held in April of 2020 next year. Tickets will go on sale in September. You can also expect us to do more quarterly events with mothers and daughters and see more of A Queen and Her Princess out in the community. We also sell T-shirts for mothers and daughters. We have some other things that we are working on which we cant say just yet. So please spread the word about us.
Is there anything else you would like to share?
I am also the executive director for an organization, Chicago 300 Black Women where the founder is Dr. Tammy Hicks and we also have memberships and I would love for you to join us. Please visit their social media as well.
