The Girls Entrepreneurs Expo 2016!

Hi guys!

Thanks again for reading. I am here to let you know about the amazing experience that I had speaking to some of the most impressive young female entrepreneurs that I have ever met! I was able to be invited as a media guest to speak to some of these young ladies at the Girls Entrepreneurs Expo 2016. Shout out to the owner of Skin So Sweet Cosmetics, one of the organizers who allowed me to go. Also, shoutout to Fresh Faces Partner, Melody Boykin, and her assistant who did a wonderful job at the expo as well. She was the one who got me invited in the first instance!

Although I could not possibly go one by one and explain in depth about the conversations that I had with them indivdiually, I can tell you a few encouraging things that I noticed with all of them. They were all very ambitious at very young ages. I had girls who were less than half my age who had already gotten such a great start on their businesses! Even teens who were barely in high school already budgeting expenses and making sales like real businesswomen! This was awesome to be in that environment. I could not help but commend them because I could only imagine where i would be now if I myself had started on my path at that young of an age!

I also noticed that they all began their businesses with a spark at heart. Sometimes, us adult entrepreneurs begin with the wrong frame of mind, doing things simply for the maximization of profit. Yet, that small tinge of innocence and saturated youth gave them the actual passion to start businesses that they are emotionally attached to! In the end, they are going to go further than ones who begin with money being their main goal. I am so grateful that I got a chance to speak with all of them.

I have left the links and contact info to some of their businesses down below! Please check them out and go support our youth!

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
