Two high school students are are helping to create the ultimate birthday celebration for girls in Indianapolis. Peja Jordan recently shared a tweet with snaps of her aunt’s party bus, designed just for girls. Jordan and her friend Shamari Whitfield work as party hosts on the bus.

The simple tweet showed pictures of some of the bus’s successful events, along with the words, “Indy’s Lil Girls’ Glam Party Buss!! A Black-Owned party bus designated for little girls ages 4-12.” The tweet went viral, with nearly 25,000 likes and 11,000 retweets. The Lil Girls Glam Party Bus promises an experience any girl onboard will not forget.


The owner of Lil Girls Glam Party Bus, Peja’s aunt, Jenise Stowers Dunn, tells Yahoo Lifestyle, “I always wanted to own my own business.” The 35-year-old says she was inspired by other party services, so she got creative.


“We did spa parties out of clients’ homes until I finally invested in a bus,” she said. “With family assistance on cosmetics and two paint jobs later, I was ready to roll my bus out to the community.”

On the party bus, girls can get a manicure and pedicure, play with makeup, sing their favorite tunes in karaoke, watch movies, dress up, and participate in a fashion show.

Since going viral, the demand for a fun-filled time in the party bus has skyrocketed.



Stowers Dunn says the response to her party bus has been overwhelmingly positive, and she has plans to expand.

“The children love it, and the parents do as well. It is very convenient — we can pull up anywhere,” she says. “My favorite part is the encouragement that we give to the girls and telling them how adorable they look.”
