Hi, I'm Raven Hairston and I am a small business owner from High Point, NC. In 2017 (age 24), I began to look for different ways to create better opportunities for not only myself but for my future as well. Generational poverty is something that African American families have struggled with for years and I come from one of the those families. At some point you look at where you are in life and you try to figure out ways you can "make a difference". Investing in myself was a great way to start. I began to come up with many business ideas but none of them reached the audience I was seeking. I continued to put my trust in God and he showed me exactly where he wanted me to be. So here I am, a black business owner hoping to pay it forward and give the community what I needed when I was younger.
I hope this journey brings you as much JOY as it brings me!
