Black History is about the past, but also about the future.  It's so important to highlight and remember those who have come before us and have passed the baton to us.  Right now as a Black mompreneur, I am living proof of my ancestors' wildest dreams.  My BrownGirlsLove POWER Day  conferences are crafted to cater to millennial women of color looking to turn their dreams into reality. Our panelists provided guests with tips on everything from thriving under 30 to being a mompreneur, developing a successful podcast, branding yourself and even preparing for life after college.  I am actively paving the way for other Black women like me to create brighter futures together through colloboration and supporting one another. 

Where Are You Finding Inspiration To Design This Year?

My kids inspire me each and everyday.  It's my love and passion for my children that has propelled me to quit my day job, and invest my efforts full time into my brand Lovebrownsugar.  I also focus on empowering other mothers of color and their children through my two other endeavors Baby Brown Sugar and Brown Girls Loves, which focus on celebrating and embracing the journey of motherhood with beautiful brown babies.
