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 #MisaHylton, Hip Hop Fashion’s Renaissance Woman.
Misa Hylton is the woman behind Hip Hop & R&B fashion moments- from Lil’Kim, Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliott, and more to the runway of Baby Phat and Sean Combs’ fashion lines.
Over the last few decades, Misa’s endeavors in styling, design, retail, education, and philanthropy have solidified her as a bonafide cultural icon.
In 2012, Hylton created Misa Hylton Fashion Academy to teach future stylists the business. Her motivation has helped many men and women follow their dreams of becoming a fashion stylist.
As a woman of many trades, Misa is a well-respected stylist, life coach, and of course a mother to her three children. Talk about Ballerific!
