These trailblazing women are changing the game for founders of color.

Suan Kim, Founder of My Fashion Crate

 My fashion crate is a subscription service curating an outfit based on your style preferences and the items you receive are by local designers and small businesses so you can be in style and do good by supporting them. Living in the fashion capital NYC and working in multiple top fashion companies for over 10 years, I found myself easily discovering trendy styles and of course, new brands and small businesses in fashion! I noticed how much people around me enjoy hearing about these amazing brands and their stories and so My Fashion Crate was born.

Raquel R. Sanchez, Founder of zen vida Institute

I’m Raquel and I’m the Founder of zen vida Institute. Today, women of color generally have one health problem they want to overcome but have no idea how to do it by themselves. My solution at zen vida is to be a helping hand for these women to go vegan, soy, dairy or gluten free and get healthier because I’ve helped many women with these issues because I healed myself from PCOS and Hashimoto’s and feel better than I did at 30! Everything you put ON your body and, IN your body, affects you! zen vida will provide mind body and spirit for the modern Entrepreneurial woman with recipes, links to products that I use personally and NLP, TLT and hypnotherapy and hypno-music as well.
