Miss Black Creativity
A horrible experience that turned into a black owned business.
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. It is a crazy story that has yet to end.
Since then, I changed this page into my business page and used my Miss Black Creativity title as my store name.
On July 12, 2019, I launched my store. A year later it has grown way more than I expected. I started 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 (I made my pageant dress).
During this 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. Thank you.
