We all see the news feeds through our socials or we hear about the tragedies happening amongst our people….BUT how many of us are doing something about it? Tajh Sutton in Brooklyn, New York decided to step up and took action. Inspired by the execution of Troy Davis and the murder of Trayvon Martin, through her businesses Young People of Color Incorp. & Loc Love Lives Here, Tajh is reshaping minds to create a more positive environmental outlook. Teaching young people about life and the things that come with being OF COLOR is both difficult and at times heartbreaking to do, but she’s taking on the job with pride by offering practical solutions! That's why we have deemed Tajh Sutton “Queen of the Young People of Color”.
Back in the day being vegan was a taboo. It was one of those things that seemed way too hard and way too expensive. Many of us made the mistake of ignoring the impact of eating less animal products thinking that it would be way too hard. But like many, Kyna Willis in Atlanta, GA, found herself suffering from fibroids. Inspired to make the transition to a plant-based diet, Kyna later started a web-series to share her journey. With her web-series, The Turnip, Kyna is introducing well respected African American restaurant owners who are adding a little flava to the vegan and plant-based lifestyle. As a publicist, Kyna saw that she could not only give exposure to these owners, but also educate Black & Caribbean women on how a plant-based diet eliminated most of her fibroids. Kyna said NO to suffering in silence and said yes to the green life. We dub Kyna the queen of plant-based, TURN-UP!
Time to talk about the elephant in the room when it comes to hair: Alopecia. None of my sisters should feel ashamed about it and there are solutions to help. Kamika King decided to take back her hair and went a step further by sharing it with the world. Through her business Makeba Co & The I Am Grooming Co, Kamika is giving people organic products that provide results. Reviving hair and healing hearts, we have deemed Kamika Queen of Alopecia Care.
Creating the life you want means going after what it takes to obtain it. You have to surround yourself with positive energy and believe that what you put out is what you will get back. Always remember, people will talk about you regardless of what you do and how you do it, so GIVE THEM SOMETHING GREAT TO TALK ABOUT. My business has help me become more social and outgoing. It's taught me to open my mind to new experiences! The world of makeup is so much more than blush, eyeshadow and colors. It's about empowering, motivating, sharing and most of all development of self love. I'm in love with my reflection and I'm comfortable in the skin I'm in! // Tangela Bennett founder of @FacesByDaze in Miami, Florida!
Mental Health Month was last month and we are proud of every brave soul who told their story. Mental health is nothing to be ashamed of. Mental health is nothing to keep silent about. Mental health does not equate to crazy. Those are FALSE ideas and assumptions! EVERYONE should take responsible measures to maintain a positive, healthy mind. Life will be life forever, so there are times where situations become too much for you to bear alone. Tatiana Smith has taken her love for others and brought TSmith Counseling to life. Helping people work through this maze we call life, Tatiana is most def the Queen of Mental Awareness.
Her business has turned her into an unstoppable woman. Living in a warm climate that cultivates dry scalp and skin, Asheya Dixon the creator of BRWN Beauty decided to take action. She found an opportunity to help those who may be struggling in their self care routine in Tucson, Arizona. This beauty line, caters to the needs of those who suffer from hyperpigmentation, dehydration, dark under-eye circles, acne, and oiliness and in ways that are safe, natural, and healthy. We salute you queen for catering to the multicultural beauty space that's still much younger and less evolved!
We love a spiritual woman. Even better a spiritual woman who has the ability to create is a plus. From hats, to podcast, to a brunch series, Kristen Mann is embracing her artistry in all of it’s forms. Sticking to her schedule, Kristen is learning to use time management and communication to build the business of her dreams. We love that she finds inspiration in nature and black culture. We equally love that she isn’t afraid to announce God as her ultimate guide. If you’re on the path to embracing your art, share a moment with the Queen of versatility, @1VersatileChic in Binghamton, New York!
In the world of podcasts, Duolystic exists to give women a voice. The traditional roles of women are changing and consequently women are speaking up on things that matter and things that are important to them! The Duolystic podcast is edgy and founded by two women, one being Klashae Bullard from Cedar Hill, TX, who pride themselves on being free and true gemini’s. Stack your gems ladies, the Duolystic podcast can be added to your self-help arsenal.
How many of us are better at giving advice than taking it or even living by it for that matter? If this is you, don't feel bad sis because you're not alone! When it comes to wellness, it's almost like people never want to talk about it. Amea Love Givens from Las Vegas, Nevada said not any more! Through her business, Wellness Love Tribe, she aims to spread wellness and support amongst medical professionals to help them stay healthy and sane of course. After recognizing she needed to care for herself as she would later become a patient, Amea claimed the crown as the Queen of Wellness for Professionals. In the words of Migos, you gotta “Walk it like You talk it.”
Fawnne Smith of Virginia Beach, VA has the sweetest heart. We thought when reading the Fawnne story she would speak about her awesome salon, but she gave us so much more. We could hear it in her story that’s she's all about building a supportive community full of entrepreneurs and cultivating an amazing experience for her clients. We could also hear it in her story how much she loves her children and how much they have positively influenced her entrepreneurial journey. It’s pretty sweet if you ask us. With hard work, Fawnne from Virginia Beach, VA is showing her children that you can work hard to build the life you’ve always wanted. She didn’t despise her small beginnings and for that, she’s the queen of Salon Noa!
