About Dr. Lisa

As someone who personally suffered from low self-esteem, I quickly recognized the characteristics within my class of female students. This inspired me to form the World of EPI(Entertainment, Publishing and Inspiration) to create books that would build self-esteem in little girls of color.

After landing my books into Walmart stores, they began suggesting that I should create dolls. During that time, I declined because I never saw that as one of my life’s pursuits. I was happy with my life and success as a professor. It wasn’t until I viewed the updated doll study, that my mind was completely changed. In the study, one of the African American girl participants was asked why the white doll was prettier. As she touched her hand, she said, “I didn’t think the brown doll’s skin was pretty because it is nasty just like mine”. With tears flowing down my face, it hit me that all this begins in early childhood. I knew in that very moment, this has to change. I had to pursue creating dolls that reflected the beauty in all little girls, and leave my life as a professor behind.

In 2009, the World of EPI released its' first line of dolls, Positively Perfect Dolls for toddlers. We paid special attention to all the doll features and skin tones, to create authentic representations that our children could grow up seeing their beauty from the start. To continue our mission of reaching more age groups, in 2017 we created "The Fresh Dolls", an elegant fashion doll with an edge.  The Fresh Dolls were intentionally created with fuller hips and thighs, and a more realistic waistline, with trendy fashion pieces. Our dolls can be found in stores across the globe, from the U.S., Australia, Dubai to Switzerland.

This journey has not been easy, but it worth it all to create dolls that honor the beauty of little girls around the world.
