Meet the President and Founder

Mrs. Leah Pump is the President and CEO of the LadyLike Foundation. Inc. She dreams that all of the young women she encounters establishes a relationship with the God, realizes their value, reaches their full potential, and becomes socially, intellectually, and mentally prepared to compete in today’s society. She truly believes that the LadyLike Foundation will be the organization that enables women of all cultures, ages and socioeconomic backgrounds to become the virtuous, well-rounded “Lady” that God has created them to be.


What We Do

How we empower and inspire young women to reach their potential.


The LadyLike Foundation holds many events throughout the year. Events include; LadyLike Day at UCLA, Neiman Marcus Lunch and Shop Day, Lady Like Annual Mother and Daughter Tea Party, Life and Style Workshops, and Girl Talk meetings. All girls ages are invited to join in on our events. If the event is for a certain age group the invite will specify which age group is appropriate to attend.


We have so much fun during our workshops & classes. We’ve have cooking classes, etiquette classes, tea parties, college application workshops, academic workshops, life skill lessons, and our famous “Girl Talk” sessions where we talk about real issues, ask real questions, and get real answers.

College Scholarships

Each year the LadyLike Foundation awards 5 young ladies with scholarships ranging from $1000.00 to $2,500.00. These young ladies go through an application process where they have to complete an essay, turn in 3 letters of recommendation, present their resume, and transcripts. The young ladies must also have a 3.5 GPA and show proof of the college they are attending in the fall.

LadyLike Foundation
in Africa

The LadyLike Foundation supports orphans in the Obosomso Orphanage in Obuasi, Ghana by giving them clothes, and hygiene products. The LadyLike Foundation also partnered with the McCoy Memorial Baptist Church to build a bathroom and shower house on the orphanage grounds for the children. This is the first wash house to ever be built in their village.

The LadyLike Class

“The LadyLike Class” : Leah Pump created a curriculum for the LadyLike Foundation. The curriculum is taught twice a week at Lou Dantzler Middle School. In this class 50 young ladies are taught the Fundamentals of being LadyLike:

L – Love, A true lady must love God, herself, and others. This is the one thing that separates her from the crowd, her love. Her love is unselfish and she knows that the way she gives it is how she will receive it.

A – Always Appropriate. A lady knows how to be appropriate at any place, at any time. She knows how to eat, how to speak, how to sit, how to stand, what to say and what not to say, she knows what to wear, and she knows how to behave. A lady is never intimidated by her environment, she knows exactly what to do and adapts to any circumstance.

D – Destined for Greatness. A lady is always goal oriented. She is always striving for greatness despite whatever challenges come her way.

Y – Yearn to Learn. A lady never stops learning and experiencing new things.


L -



A - Always Appropriate.



D - Destined for Greatness


Y - Yearn to Learn.
