Hey! I’m Pearl, 21 year old Liberian business woman, who owns an accessory brand/ business called MonabyPearl and a hair business, Monashairr. My goal is to keep both women and men looking beautiful without breaking the bank. I graduated college in 2019 and my ultimate goal has always been to concur the world. My inspiration through this entire journey is Robyn Fenty (Rihanna). She inspires me through out her entire journey and makes me believe that anybody can do anything as long as they put their mind to it. The gag is: If you don’t believe in yourself, who will? I’m the woman I am today because of hard work and consistency. I aspire to be my true self everyday while pursuing my dreams and working harder.

Hello Everyone! My name is Toni Gaye and I am a 19 year old with big dreams. I am currently attending Penn State University and majoring in Toxicology. My two passions are makeup and medicine. I am currently working towards my doctorate in Pharmacy while conquering my makeup brand Cocoa Cosmetics. Cocoa Cosmetics is a cruelty free based makeup brand for people of color. I provide beauty supplies from lipglosses to foundations and many more. My end goal for my cosmetics line is to become as big as Mac and/or Sephora, in stores and all over being globally known. I look up to brands like the Crayon Case and Fenty Beauty. Seeing women of color in the makeup industry really pushes me to create my own. What makes me the women I am today is the encouragement and push from my friends, family, and God who makes me bring out the best in myself.

My name is Nneamaka Nwomonoh. I am a 19 year old Kinesiology major at Delaware State University. When I graduate with my bachelors, I intend on returning back to school to obtain my masters in Rehabilitation sciences. My dream job of becoming a rehabilitation therapist for children that have been through trauma requires both degrees. I have many dreams and aspirations in life. My most important goal in life is to be successful. The definition of the word successful may vary to everyone. For me being successful is being able to take care of the people most important to me financially, physically and emotionally. The saying “It takes a village to raise a child” is a very influential factor when it comes to understanding what makes me who I am. I was lucky to be raised by an independent, responsible and cultured woman; In addition, I am also fortunate to have so many older sibling and relatives who are wise and have made mistakes that I have learned from but do not have to experience. My morals, culture and ethics has made me who I am. My selflessness, ambition and ability to adapt to any environment has made me the woman I am.
Hi I’m Anissa, I go by Nessa though. I am a 17 year old senior at Cardinal O’Hara. I can’t wait to see what the world has to offer me. Ever since I was a small child, I knew that I wanted to work in the medical field. I’ve finally decided that I wanted to be a physician assistant specializing in cosmetic surgery. Now, most people ask “Hey, why don’t you want to run the whole 4 yards and be the doctor?” See I thought about that and realized that’s 12 years in school…YIKES. That’s not the only reason, I want to have more than one way of income and doctors just don’t have the times to run other brand names . As of now I have a lot of other things on my mind that I can do like buying properties and fixing them up to sell , starting my own skin care line, and continue what I’m doing now with hair . It’s kinda funny how I started doing hair too. See for my 16th birthday I really wanted a lace front install, but everyone was charge $200+ and that just wasn’t apart of the budget. So, I was basically like F this. I can do bad all by myself and that’s how I began to practice on myself, cousins and friends. Now my business has grown! It’s definitely not where I want it to be but everyone has to start from somewhere. Something that really gives me a push everyone is that strong desire to be successful. I am a first generation Liberian-American and I feel as thought I have so much potential. Seeing my parents break theirs backs everyday to climb the social ladder is the main reason I keep going. I just can’t disappoint them. One female that’s inspires me the most is my grandmother, Isabella. To me she is the definition of a strong independent woman. She’s told me all the stories on how she has overcome the adversities of life. If I could be half the woman that she is, I would be so content with life.
