Kate Somerville announced the long-term partnership with Foster Nation last year, with a commitment to donate $100,000 a year to the organization, which includes scholarships to attend beauty school. The Defy Impossible Esthetics Scholarships provide full funding to former Youth Adopters interested in pursuing a career in beauty. The first group of winners were chosen following their personal submissions of a 5-minute video essay, explaining how a career in beauty would change their lives. Kate Somerville and Foster Nation have teamed up with Beauty changes lives to review submitted videos, implement the scholarship program and ensure its success.

“Navigating my own tumultuous teenage years without a support system was extremely difficult,” said Kate Somerville, Founder of Kate Somerville Skincare. “We developed this partnership with Foster Nation to help struggling young adults and put them on the path to success with long-term career opportunities in the beauty industry. Our Team Kate Somerville team will also provide winners with ongoing mentorship opportunities which we hope will be invaluable,” she added.

The 2021 scholarship recipients are currently beginning their aesthetic journey and are enrolled in institutions such as Paul Mitchell, Aveda and Marmel Beauty Academies. Joanna Garcia, one of the scholarship recipients, said, “Self-sufficiency is important to me. I am thrilled to be getting my esthetics license and being able to use my passion to pursue a career that I love, rather than a career that poverty forces me to take.

Also launching this month in honor of Foster Care Awareness is a limited-edition version of the brand’s best-selling ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment, featuring artwork created by former young foster mom Laura Bush. Laura shared her inspiration for the design saying, “Butterflies symbolize freedom and transformation. I added an eye because I’m always looking for a better future. If you are a struggling youth right now, know that you are not alone. There are opportunities and people out there who want to help you realize your potential. Your past may be different from others, but it doesn’t define your future.

Kate Somerville Skincare is thrilled to share her platform with Laura and help her words and illustrations reach thousands of people through her website, social media and retail partners. Kate Somerville is committed to championing the voices of former young adoptees as they age out of the system and pursue healthy, beautiful lives of their own design. The limited-edition ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment (SRP $88.00 for 1.7 fl oz) will be available at katesomerville.com and at retailers nationwide beginning May 1, 2022.
