Ballerific Woman: Karleen Roy, From Diddy’s Assistant to Being Her Own Boss

In a perfect world, men and women would receive equal pay. African American women would be presented the same opportunities as their white counterparts. Rejection would be based on qualifications rather than race.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Unfortunately, this world is far from perfect, however, there are people, more specifically women, who have dedicated their time, money and education to make a positive change. They’ve used their experiences and their encounters with injustices to fight and/or create more opportunities for their children and their children’s children, in an effort to make the world a better place. They’ve put our pain and problems on their backs and created space for change, new opportunities for our brothers and sisters to excel and succeed in a world that is designed against us. This is #BlackExcellence. These are Ballerific Women.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of those special individuals is #KarleenRoy, who went from being Diddy’s assistant to being her own boss.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Karleen Roy is the founder of The Vanity Group, which is a luxury life’s management company that specializes in event planning, luxury concierge services and talent relations.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Roy was Diddy’s Assistant for six years before realizing she was ready for the next chapter in her life. After leaving Bad Boy, former colleagues began reaching out to Roy to secure talent for red carpet events and planning events. That’s when Karleen realized that everything she was doing was a business venture.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Karleen Roy has worked with many clients from Diddy, Kobe Bryant, Fabolous, and many more. Roy was able to turn something she loves into her very own business. Now that’s a Ballerific Woman!
