Julia Saffold, fondly known as "Mama-Jewels", is an author, inspirational speaker, team builder, choral directress, and positive youth development coach. 

On tour with her daughter, Dr Jasmine Zapata MD, MPH and The Beyond Beautiful® International Girls Empowerment Movement, "Mama-Jewels" lends a powerful voice of sage wisdom, not only to young people, but also to parents, youth leaders, and mentors. 

Together with Dr Zapata, she and her daughter launched a mother-daughter book series entitled "Beyond Beautiful" in November 2017.

Dr Zapata's book, "Beyond Beautiful - A Girl's Guide To Unlocking the Power of Inner Beauty, Self Esteem. Resilience, and Courage" is a powerful journey for teens to discover that real beauty comes from strength within.

Julia's book, "The Beyond Beautiful Treasure Box - Protecting Your Inner Treasures" inspires elementary aged children to embrace their inner treasures, such as courage, resilience, self-worth, and confidence, teaching the importance and value of protecting their inner treasures. Julia's soon to be released book, "Raising Diamonds That Shine" is a power-packed guide filled with wisdom, candor, and encouragement for parents & all youth nurturers.
