Ashton Green

Started in high school writing parodies to popular songs, later choosing to switch the jokes and comedy lines for actual punchlines and lyrics that my idols would appreciate. After meeting my partner in hip hop crime, Michael “Ralphunnoticed” Edison, and dropping out of college, I would release a series of mixtapes containing remixes to popular rap and pop songs titled “Lost in Translation.” Read more>>

My passion for single mothers grew as I began to face challenges and overcome different obstacles as a single mother. I was inspired to tell my story as co-author in my most recent book “Power Single Moms.” My mission is to empower teen girls and young women to overcome their fears, embrace their God-given identity and purpose on this earth. Read more>>

I am proud to say Fashionable And Thick is now recognized as a 501c3 organization. (The Fashionable and Thick Foundation) and although sales may not be where I want them at the moment, the Dorcas Collection has had a couple of loyal clients and photographers that have allowed me to work as a personal stylist for their desired look. For that, I am grateful! Read more>>

Ashley Johnson

I started teaching dance to students as part of an outreach program while in college in New Orleans, Louisiana at Dillard University. I fell in love with the experience of teaching the art of movement to students who didn’t have access to a formal dance program. Read more>>

I got my 1st corporate job back in 2013 after I received my Master’s degree from TSU. Once I read the social media policy, I deleted all of my accounts. I used to be very vocal back in my day and didn’t want anything from my past coming back to haunt me. So, I took a 2-year break and finally decided to rejoin back in late 2014. Read more>>

Michael Edison

My journey started back in middle school. I was determined to be a cartoonist so I took art class. Every morning when I would head to class, I would always see the band director. We would say good morning and everything. One day, she asked me have I ever thought about being in a band. Read more>>

From the very beginning, pursuing the business was a “struggle” because I was trying to convince myself that this was something I could actually succeed in. My battle has been a mental one. The journey only became easier when I began to change my mindset. Realizing that it was my choice to succeed in the craft, my choice to believe in the greatness God has put in me. Read more>>

Courtland Webb

I started writing songs at 14. Just random poetry and songs I would make up. My homie Lafayette hooked me up with FL Studio when I was 16, and that’s when I started producing. Throughout high school, I went through a ton of different solo projects and styles for my music. Read more>>

Adam Sanchez

Growing up, I always used to watch the Sunday morning political talk shows and always found politics interesting. My appreciation for public service really started to take shape when I started working for the City of Missouri City, in the Public Works department in 2014. Read more>>

Marcus Edwards

As I delve deeper into my craft, it became apparent that I would inevitably need my own space to create. My mother would become completely upset and bothered by the mess I would create. She would literally trash my work when left unattended. It is very difficult to pursue a dream when not supported by those closest to you. Read more>>

Jason Moore

I would have never in a million years believed I would be here doing what I am doing, but I am truly blessed because my clients are like family; without them, pushing me to my boundaries and having the courage to take on projects, I would not be considered a “creative.” It is funny because I never considered myself to be creative but here I am, creating the shit out of something. Read more>>
