*Everybody knows that Phaedra Parks is all about her business, but the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is also about the black community.
Her “Phaedra Foundation” includes such programs as Save Our Sons, and this summer will launch Camp Joy outside of Flint, MI for children affected by the city’s water crisis, according to RealityTea.
Beyond her charity endeavors, Phaedra has also expressed a desire to hold public office, telling the site that she always envisioned she’d be the insurance commissioner.
“I’m definitely moving more towards, maybe, an elected office,” she said.
“I’m not sure where I would be most helpful, but I just want to show people a renaissance woman much like myself, who has been through a lot of challenges, but also a lot of successes as well; [who] can use your voice not only for cattiness on a television show but to help people in a very positive way,” expresses Phaedra.
“We all live in America and we all want to have the American dream,” she adds. “Someone has to fight for the people who don’t have an opportunity to share in the dream that we should all be living.”
