The Future is Young Loud Proud

I launched this Blog site “Young Loud Proud” and “Speak Up: a podcast for invincible girls” to encourage and educate my peers,  break stereotypes, promote diversity & inclusion, promote self-love/care, self-expression, and to celebrate art.

I want to continue with this theme and over the next five years transform Young Loud Proud into a mentoring program that engulfs my current MISSION and will encourage young people to strive for greatness despite their current shortcomings.

I want to expand YLP’s reach by visiting various areas across the world to bridge the gap between various cultures, conduct classes that celebrates individuality through art, and share the mission of  YLP while campaigning “I like me.”

There are young people with deep emotional issues and there are children who may not be able to express themselves; as a result I see a need for this mentoring art program.

The art classes given through this mentoring program will be a huge developmental benefit because it will help strengthen cognitive skills, communication, team building, and this will help children with self-expression.

Poetry

This program will be based on art that promotes the production of: poetry writing.

We’ll explore poetry throughout history and have the opportunity to review a variety of previous works (from Dr. Suess to Langston Hughes).

The educational components will include an overview of famous/infamous poets in history.

The overall goal will be to motivate children to be accepting of each other, promote diversity, and to spread love between cultures.

Cosmetic Making

These classes will teach young people how to create beauty products from scratch (this craft will help with team building, promote camaraderie, and bridge the gap between foreign cultures).

Participants will be given a variety of ingredients to create their beauty products.

They will be mixing ingredients together and (I will melt them and mold them); increasing knowledge on how cosmetics are made is a great skill to obtain.

Podcasting

I want to help young people create Podcasts ultimately teaching the importance of communication.

After learning how to create their own poetry/ short stories participants will be given the opportunity to read and record their stories and poems, explain their meaning, learn how to splice recordings/ add music & sound effects, and ultimately create an “episode” for a Podcast.

I have submitted this propsal to many different agencies for funding and have filled out a ton of grant applications. It can be fustrating to have a vision of this magnitude (without funding) and without a solid/ concrete plan to execute goals… but I am hopeful and positive!

I know I’m making these ideas real every time I talk about them, type them out, and put them on paper.

I shared this idea with everyone, I thought it was time I shared it with you.

I love you Young Loud Proud, I see the prgress, and I see your future (it’s BRIGHT)!

Thank you.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

DIY Lipstick & Lipgloss tutorial from #MystikyMaquillage by Maya Danielle: & How creating my own beauty products and becoming an entrepreneur is more fun than it is work

If you’re going to be Young, Loud, and Proud you’ve got to look good doing it… right?

That’s what I was thinking the moment I decided to officially open an Etsy shop and launch my uniquely, homemade beauty products.

I want to create products that are going to make girls & women smile and enhance their best facial features: lips!

I’ve always wanted to become an entrepreneur and I finally found my niche.

If you’re like me you may find it hard to find a color that you think is suitable for everyday wear or maybe you’re just gaining the confidence to wear bright colors well #PBL has a ton of nude colors to choose from, tinted colors with purple, red & pink undertones!

Think your lips are too small for a particular color or just too BIG? I’m here to tell you there’s no such thing as the wrong color and with Pretty Big Lips each shade is uniquely crafted with you in mind!

Here’s a few shades I’ve created so far:

For updates/a sneak peek into the process of creating my beauty products you can always check out my Instagram page, story & story highlights (@mystik.y / highlights: “YLPlippie”)

I love my lips (I want you to fall in love with yours too)!!

It’s an amazing feeling when you’re able to embrace things about yourself especially if they were once insecurities.

I was teased all throughout my childhood for my “soup coolers” & “Jay-Z lips” now, women are paying BIG bucks to have their lips look like mine. Ha!

Although it took a while for some people to see the beauty in my African features I always knew how poppin my lips were I was just a bit insecure to wear any color on them; I would think about how dramatic each color appeared and be insecure but those days are over!

I love my pretty big lips so why not make an honest living with them!? —> this isn’t supposed to be an inappropriate joke.

(Also not a joke! Email me if you wouldn’t mind if I pop up with #PRETTYBIGLIPS & “An Ode to the “Good Girl”” near you: proudloudyoung@gmail.com)

Two years ago, I started making my own lipstick and gloss as a craft and fun hobby but the more I practice the more I see the potential in creating a great entrepreneurial opportunity.

Enjoy a short DIY video to show a little of the process:

Some of my favorite items to use to create my lipstick are:

Coconut oil

Beeswax

Castor oil

Vitamin E oil

Mica pigment

Lavender essential oil

I order all of my (cosmetic grade mica/pigment from Etsy!):

I also make a brown sugar lip scrub using:

Brown sugar

Coconut oil

Honey

Vitamin E

Some of my favorite colors are:

What’s good

Trial & Error

I also have a bundle deal where you are able to get 3-4 or 5-6 samples + a poem book (ranging between $15-20$) click here.

My #goals are to continue to spread truth, love, hope, and inspiration to young people and to do it in style. I’m just a young girl from Philadelphia with a vision. I created my brand young loud and proud a little over a year ago and a couple of extensions of YLP include my blog, upcoming podcast Speak Up, and now introducing Mystiky Maquillage 👄
