FedEx Small Business Grant Contest (Young Loud Proud & Mystiky Maquillage)

Elevator Pitch

I mentor young girls by promoting self-expression through craft (creating beauty products; lipstick & lip gloss) and poetry writing.

Tell us about your business. What inspired you to get into it, what you sell/service you offer, what makes your business stand out and how it impacts you, your community or the environment.

Young Loud Proud is a safe space for young people to break stereotypes, promote diversity & inclusion, to promote self-expression and to learn crafts. I was bullied in school for my features and even my name and instead of sharing my emotions with anyone I would write short stories and poetry (mostly addressed to my future self). I was bullied for my physical features (my big lips) but I’ve turned that into motivation for my beauty line: Mystiky Maquillage.

How would you use the FedEx Small Business Grant money to make a significant impact on your business?

I want to expand my business and reach by traveling around the United States and conducting interviews for the”Young Loud Proud” blog (with my campaign “I like me” promoting self-love/care). I want to teach young people to embrace and love themselves through poetry writing and the creation of beauty products from scratch. This prize money will help with travel costs & accommodations, materials for creating beauty products, and reserving small venues for presentations.
