In the Spring of 2019, Allison Stein was selected to reign as Queen Athena VI. As queen, she felt it was vital to continue her work in the community, but on a larger scale. She launched Project Hope this past summer. Under her platform, she delivered supplies to students enrolled in Jefferson Parish Schools. The supplies included backpacks, pens, pencils, paper and rulers, crayons and markers. “I see hundreds of students who show up to their first day of school without the resources they need to make the most of this school year, so it is my hope to make a difference,” said Queen Allison Stein. Through her initiative Project Hope, Queen Athena VI is dedicated to transforming lives through acts of kindness, spreading love and inspiration. Queen Allison spearheaded another community event in collaboration with the 2020 Graces. Their collaboration on fed nearly one hundred citizens. She currently has plans to donate more school supplies and continue to raise awareness on the plight of homelessness.
