On July 12, 2019, I launched my store to raise money for a pageant that I was in. I already had a website to market my acting career so it was easy to transition into selling. I actually won Miss Black Positivity and best dressed since I made my pageant dress. Unfortunately, the pageant ended up being a complete scam filled with empty promises, mismanagement of funds, gaslighting, fraud, and lies. I filled a police report, called lawyers, reported it to the news, the whole nine yards.
Since then, I changed this page into my business page and used my Miss Black Creativity title as my store name, and began selling a multitude of items. During the pandemic, we raised over $600 and counting for first responders, spread awareness of police brutality by petitioning and protesting, all while social distancing and spreading accurate information regarding COVID-19.
In the future, I hope to continue to grow and advocate for those who may not be able to advocate for themselves.
