Pageant Contestant Coaching
2019 Miss NY Continental Cultural Pageant by the Caribbean American Cultural Group. Each contestant represented a Caribbean country. I coached the girls’ walks, stage presence, public speaking, head and eye movement, on how to move in their various looks, and what attire and accessories to choose for most flattering appearance on stage.
In this collaboration with with Kingsley Duah, Owner of Privélege, and the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation’s Economic Solutions Center, we presented a seminar called Basic to Boss: How to Dress the Part and Win for young professionals and those seeking an image upgrade. We raffled 2 large Marc Jacobs perfume gift boxes and one Privélege custom suit won by a college student.

I asked friends and family for gently used outerwear, picked up the donations from around the city, and took them to the Urban Strategies Fannie Barnes Residence in Brownsville, Brooklyn.

Success Fair Style Workshops
APPLOI New Year Best You Success Fair. Apploi was crafted as an evolutionary experience for companies and hiring managers. The app helps people find and apply to jobs in the retail, hospitality, service, and support industries virtually. I was so thrilled to conduct workshops on career dress throughout the day within this super informative free day fair at Brooklyn Borough Hall for people looking to self improve. It included pre-interview relaxation techniques, resume review & interview tips from industry professionals, financial planning & budgeting, and my professional styling tips. The day was capped off with a professional dress runway show. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/new-year-best-you-success-fair-2016-tickets-20534749990
