I’m beyond thankful that programs like Elevate exist to champion digital skillset conversations for brown and black businesses.

I first joined Elevate as a participant in 2018 for my makeup artistry business. Now, an employee of Facebook and almost 2 years later, I’ve had the privilege of participating as a core team member, volunteering my time to assist with the marketing, partnerships and strategy for the program. Elevate has become more than just my work family. Through these relationships, I’ve developed a better understanding of myself professionally and as someone who is very active in the local community, I’ve had a direct resource to promote/share amongst friends & family to help them navigate and leverage our Facebook products as entrepreneurs/creators. I’m beyond thankful that programs like Elevate exist to champion digital skillset conversations for brown and black businesses. The fabric of this program was designed by Black and Brown people at Facebook, for Black and Brown creators and entrepreneurs — woven with the same authentic creativity and flavor of the culture. Elevate is a program that speaks my language and I’m so happy to a part of the team!
