Longtime leaders in black beauty Dark & Lovely recently launched their initiative, Building Beautiful Futures: Closing the Opportunity Gap. According to their site, the 4-year agreement will “create paths to success for over 16,000 young Black women and raise awareness around the opportunity gap and how to help close it amongst 85 million people.”

As a working actress, college student and Black woman, I know first-hand how important it is to have access to resources and mentors to help you achieve your goals. You can’t do it alone,” stated Storm Reid Dark & Lovely Ambassador. 


Building Beautiful Futures: Closing the Opportunity Gap will provide scholarships, networking opportunities and mentorship programs to black female college students and young professionals. Internships and career coaching are also available.
