Pt. 4 | Self-Love & Authenticity: A fireside chat with Tiffany Ware, Founder and Creative Director of The Brown Girls Project and Glamhoarder.com
Creative and passionate, would be the two words that most would attribute to Tiffany Ware, the Founder of The Brown Girls Project. A native of Cincinnati, Tiffany Ware, holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration and a Bachelor’s degree in Business Communication. Her professional experience has taken her into a vast array of industries but her true loves have always been writing, marketing, fashion, and cosmetics. She has an extensive background in all of those areas that has taken her from the lab to the boardroom to busy photo shoot sets. In 2014, after some troubling conversations with many of her beauty clients, Tiffany decided to start a photo-series, The Brown Girls Project, celebrating the beauty of darker complexioned African American women. The goal was to debunk European beauty standards and approach the subject of colorism in the black community. The project’s popularity grew quickly and blossomed into the project that many know today. The Brown Girls Project is now known as an organization dedicated to celebrating, educating, encouraging and empowering melanin-rich women and girls through unconventional programming, workshops, social events and culturally influenced products that promote positive self-talk. Its online international community used to inspire black women/girls has a social media footprint of over 237,000 followers. The Brown Girls Project’s most popular initiatives are an annual self-love party (Pretty & Proud Party) with a black doll and journal giveaway for girls 6-18 years old. This initiative has given over 300 black dolls and 75 journals. Brown Girls With Guns, a CCW class that teaches firearm safety and certifies black women to be licensed firearms carriers. Over 750 women have been certified through this program. They also offer a genealogy workshop (Finding Your Roots), and a de-escalation workshop (De-Escalate) to help teens navigate hostile environments and handle police dealings. The Brown Girls Project’s newest endeavor launches this month: Minding Our Business: A Black Woman-Owned Marketplace is a pop-up shop dedicated to supporting black women entrepreneurs and circulating black dollars in our community. Ms. Ware has also developed a line of t-shirts and jewelry dedicated to positive messaging for brown girls. Tiffany feels that her sole purpose in everything that she does under this project’s name is to remind the girls/ladies involved that they are enough, smart enough, pretty enough and strong enough despite what this world will try to tell them about themselves.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
