Why does her project / start-up promote digitalisation?
We support companies in becoming more diverse - also in their digital presence. Whether during the recruiting process, in digital branding or on a digital marketing campaign, we offer digital solution approaches for diversity
The DFLA and the motto "Be bold, be brave, be you" stand for new ideas and the courage to be the first. Where is the nominee first and a pioneer for others or just brave enough to be herself?
As a daughter of a Jamaican mother who did not receive a high school degree, I am the first to go on to pursue a masters and then found a successful business. I am also brave enough because not only am I a business owner, a woman, a person of color, since 2022 I am also a mother. I am bold, I am brave, I am me!
