Brown Girl Expo to provide platform for women to showcase talents


Phenomenal Brown Girl, a registered student organization dedicated to women's empowerment, sisterhood, mentoring and service, will host its first Brown Girl Expo from 6:30-9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28 in the Bovee University Center Gold Room. The event is free and open to the public. 

The Brown Girl Expo will showcase women’s talents and skills, such as hairstyling, makeup artistry, baking, nail technology and design. Some of these women will be doing live tutorials and providing free samples and giveaways of their products. 

Detroit junior Khristiana Vance, vice president of Phenomenal Brown Girl, said she woke up one morning and thought about positive events Phenomenal Brown Girl could put on. She then came up with the idea for Brown Girl Expo. 

“I saw a lot of ladies at Central Michigan University who have talent that’s very unnoticed, and I knew something had to change," Vance said. "Brown Girl Expo will be a great opportunity for these women to show their talents to the students here on campus.” 

Phenomenal Brown Girl’s goal for the Brown Girl Expo is to give people a glimpse of the talents and resources these women have to offer the community.
