A Day in the Life : My first time in Denver Colorado

Made by Malyia

At last years Afropunk I met a jewel attending the festival from Denver Colorado. She initially recognized me as the natural hair model from the Today show 60 second hair segment gone wrong. After we discussed the show, her friends shopped the collection and we exchanged contact information. When she reached out a few months later to ask if I would be interested in hosting her launch party for Curls on the Block x Crowned Curls in Denver Colorado I immediately said yes. Both companies mission is to promote positive images and self-love for natural women of color. Curls on the Block creator developed a curriculum incorporating STEM to educate young girls about natural hair. 

I had an amazing time at the event. Check out the photos from the event below!

2017 Forward Conference-Keynote Speaker

Made by Malyia

I was a keynote speaker for the Forward Conference in Washington, DC January 6-8. A 3 day interactive experience featuring 4 keynote speakers and 30 guest speakers provide inspiration and insight on how to move ideas forward, successfully. NBTM the company behind the conference connects individuals of varying ethnicities, socioeconomic levels, life aspirations, and career achievements helping them to hone their ideas and creative abilities, through a supportive, global network.

I had the opportunity to connect and share my journey with young professionals. It was an honor to share the stage as a panelist with Miss Jessie's Founder Miko Branch. As a young entrepreneur it was inspiring to sit next to a pioneer.  The weekend was inspiring and I left feeling re-energized. The next Forward Conference is March 2018 in NYC, mark your calendars it will be one you don't want to miss. Visit the Forward Conference website HERE for more info.

Check out pictures from the conference below!

Year Review: Jewels Thank you for ROCKING with us in 2016!

Made by Malyia

DSC03183.JPG

Jewels I can't thank you enough for making 2016 the best one yet. This year was truly a journey and marked my year anniversary as an entrepreneur. One of my goals when I started Made by Malyia was to be able to bring everyone along on this journey as I grew the brand. None of this would be possible without your consistent support so I wanted to review the year and let you know what's next for the brand. 

I started off the year with a modeling contract that was made possible because of my appearance at Afropunk a few months earlier. I released a new collection and was featured by several blogs. 

In June my jewelry as well as myself was featured in the Colored Girl Campaign. The campaign was featured by Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Instyle, EssenceYahoo Beauty and many more

I was the natural hair model on the Today Show Summer Hair styles segment in August that went viral, the segment didn't go as planned, receiving over 10 million views. At first I didn't want the segment to overshadow the progress I made with the brand. When people started to leave comments asking where they could purchase the jewelry I had on the show, which of course was the full Made by Malyia collection, I knew my hard work wouldn't go unrecognized.

I returned to Afropunk in Brooklyn for the second consecutive year as vendor. I received more overwhelming love and support.

What's Next for the brand? 

I kick of the year as Keynote speaker in Washington DC. at the Forward Conference January 6-8 2017, where I will be sharing my journey and how to live your best life. I will be hosting the Curls on the Block Launch party in Denver, Colorado January 28, 2017.  

I will be releasing a new campaign and much more. 

Jewels, Thank you for rocking with us. Here's to making 2017 even better.
