I remember when I hated my birth mark... these days I’ve learned to love everything about myself. . . . may you revel in your wildness. there is a part of you so divine it will never be tamed. struggle against yourself as long as you can, then, surrender. #Eumelanin#Melanin

“Eumelanin addresses issues of colorism that I have experienced and black and brown people around the world experience. I wanted to create a brand that tackles this problem head-on while still being true to who I am, my intelligence, my creativity and my style. I have received so much clarity about who I am and what drives me on this journey of building Eumelanin.” @eumelanin_@crainsdetroit PR: @beebrownpr@thebeeagency

“Nothing in the world made me angrier than inaction, than silence. The refusal or inability to do something, say something when a thing needed doing or saying, was unbearable. The watchers, the head shakers, the back-turners. Made my skin prickle” (p94). #AngelaDavis#HappyBirthdayAngelaDavis

We danced under the stars in the desert to Beyoncé til 1am (remember I almost fainted at Coachella, lol), lived in Paris for a week (sooo many stories)! 2018 has been one for the books. Not only have you had my back through some of my lowest moments you have celebrated me, my highs and accomplishments as if they were yours. You have always made sure I knew that I am enough even when I’m to busy working to see it myself. You are just as beautiful inside as you are FINE AS HELL on the outside! You empower and motivate me to never give up. If I never get blessed with another friend God has already been good to me by giving me you and screwsie to go on this journey called life. Happy birthday to my very best friend @bri_ashley19 !!! 😘😘😘 #WholeLotAGangGang#G4L#EbonyIvory#PNC#GangstaBoo1and2#IAintMakingNoNewFriends

Own your power. . September has been a huge month for me I just closed on my first business loan for @Eumelanin_ and today I won 5K towards my business and will be opening my brick and mortar in Detroit in the next 12 months! I have believed in myself so much and fought hard for the woman and business woman I am becoming. I learned not to sweat the small stuff, the haters, the naysayers can never stop God plans! I know exactly what I want and I am going after with every iota of my being! The cream always rises to the top! Thank you to everyone that has supported me! And S/O to all the small business funders I no longer have to approach, but come looking for me! I have developed a brand I believe in and am extremely passionate about! 🖤 📸: @j.milhouse

I am a Chemist. I am a Creative. I am a woman of color. Eumelanin is a clothing brand that merges my scientific and creative side. I wanted to use my talents and life experiences to address issues of colorism that I’ve faced in my community that exist around the world. Eumelanin is a clothing brand designed to redefine what it means to be beautiful in every shade. . . I literally recorded this video in my bedroom using my sisters video equipment because I felt I needed a video. Who knew that this video would cause my company to be sought after. September is a huge month for me. I am working on getting funded for my first small business loan, on the brink of opening a brick and mortar store in 2019. Sometimes I don’t give myself enough credit. I created this brand about six months ago and it has really grown in such a short time. I designed, built and coded everything by myself. I’m the Vice President, CEO, head of Marketing, Social Media and design. I say all that to say I am just getting started and needed to remind myself to keep pushing through all the trials, there will be highs and lows but it’s worth it. . . Eumelanin is not only my brand it has grown into something more, my therapy. I believe we have a responsibility by the way we live our lives and when we open our mouths to empower, to love and to teach; so I created Eumelanin. ❤️ @eumelanin_
