Who are you?
BM: My name is Brittney Marshall. I am, Strong, Empowered and Classy.
What do you do?
BM: I am the CEO and Founder of My BrownBox, the woman of color’s guide to discover all things beauty, luxury and lifestyle. Each month our members receive a chic box that contains 5-6 beauty and lifestyle products delivered right to their front door. We span categories of makeup, skincare, nail care, body care, fragrances, grooming tools and other lifestyle goods. Each box is made to improve the daily lives of Brown Beauties across the globe. We celebrate the woman of color year round!
What are you passionate about?
BM: I am passionate about passion…if that makes any sense. I hold a strong admiration for those who love what they do and don’t allow anyone or anything to hold them back from attaining their goals. Oh, and how could I forget, I’m also quite passionate about art, fashion, beauty and business. 🙂
Strength refers to the quality or state of being strong; bodily or muscular power; vigor; mental power, force; moral power, firmness, courage; power by reason of influence, authority, resources, numbers, etc. What makes you strong? Tell us how it strengthens you.
BM: Never in my life have I felt like something was impossible. From childhood my parents instilled in me the mindset to “think big”, because small-scale thinking is unacceptable. This optimistic state of mind has made me strong and it continues to strengthen me as I take on life full force.
Empowerment refers to increasing the spiritual, political, social, educational, gender, or economic strength of individuals and communities. Where does your sense of empowerment derive from?
BM: Good question, my sense of empowerment comes from a variety of sources; with the main source being God, family, friends, and my innermost desire to be successful.
Classy refers to being elegant, stylish; having or reflecting high standards of personal behavior; admirably skillful and graceful. How important is it to maintain a sense of class in your life or field?
BM: As the saying goes, “you never get a second chance at a first impression”…so do all things in great taste. I added the end because it’s important to maintain your sense of class, you never know who is watching you.
Life is truly a journey. Are you proud of where and who you are right now? Why?
BM: Life is certainly a journey and it’s been great thus far. I’m proud of where I am today because I have learned so much in my 23 years and accomplished most things on my list of goals.
