As an advocate, James Allen represents Team Princess to bring more awareness to the critical need for organ donors.  Unfortunately,l as a result of many illnesses, the crucial need for organ donors - for adults and children - greatly exceeds the current supply. MedStar Georgetown Transplant Institute performs adult liver, kidney, pancreas, and small intestine transplants, as well as pediatric liver and intestinal transplants. In efforts to support this, a portion of all sales will be donated to the Kidney Foundation.

 Born in DC, raised in Maryland and having spent years of her adulthood in Virginia, Simone Agoussoye is a true product of the DMV area. Agoussoye fell in love with art as a young child, and through the years followed that passion to awards, decoration and a flourishing career in art and design. Her qualifications include a degree with the Art Institute of Washington, a residency with BET AIR’s artist in residence program, a summer long feature as part of the Phillips Collection’s 2021 Inside Out, Upside Down exhibit, as well as Lockwood Matthews Mansion Museum’s Socially Distant Art: Creativity in Lockdown, and a host of other events over the past four years.
