Check out South Loop’s rising stars below.

Keyana Pratt

Throughout my collegiate career, I interned with multiple agencies in the Houston area and even interned for a while in Atlanta, GA. While interning, I always desired to learn more and get more hands-on experience, so I decided it was time for me to create something I could call my own. So, in May of 2017, I created N.Y.A.G. Network. Read more>>

Being an entrepreneur is in no way easy. I am at a point now where I am trying to build a solid team and create a good foundation so that I can expand. With that being said it takes a lot of patience & self-discipline. I mostly struggled with wanting my business to blossom overnight. Read more>>

Roy T. Williams

One would be surprised if singer-composer Roy T. Williams did not have talent, given his musical pedigree and early exposure to some of the most soul-stirring Gospel singers from the Houston area. Born to musician parents Roy Williams and LaToska Wordlaw, who were known for their association with Houston based group Wordlaw & Company. Read more>>


I consider myself a late bloomer when it comes to making music. Although I’ve always had the love for music from birth, my passion to pursue the artistry of it didn’t come until I was 19. It started with writing, which led to turning them into actual raps, which led to me putting them with some instrumentals I would make on garage band and share with my brothers. Read more>>

Jasmine Pierre

I was born in Houston, Texas with the spirit of entrepreneurship. I’ve always wanted to own a beauty salon, with dreams of becoming a top hairstylist. However, shortly after high school, that passion was lost. After countless career changes, I later decided I wanted to become a nurse and pursue nursing school in 2014. Read more>>

Kevin Solomon

I began SlaughtaHouze in early 2000 as an independent recording label releasing mixtapes on which I arranged, DJ and freestyle on. Our chopped and screwed mixtapes host plenty of up and coming artists in neighborhoods all over Houston. In 2007, I stepped away from the indie label to tend to my family and grow as an individual. Read more>>

Patrick Laine

Never did I imagine, I’d be here running a fitness business changing lives, listening to testimonial after testimonial of how peoples lives have changed not only physically but medically speaking as well. Had my aunt had access to a convenient, friendly, judge free exercise environment – a program like Fast Laine Fit to help her on the path to better health – she may still be alive today. Read more>>

Kiara Presley

My story is not much different from many entrepreneurs today, but hopefully a little inspirational in the way I have strived and struggled to keep a consistent successful makeup business (which is an everyday job). I literally took a leap of faith into my career. Numerous years, my friends and associates always told me I had a talent for makeup and that I should pursue it professionally. Read more>>

Nell Green

I have worked as a minister with refugees for over 30 years. During that time, I developed an appreciation for the style, culture, strength, beauty, perseverance, etc. of women around the world. I began doing global runways highlighting the fashion and culture of women from many different people groups. Read more>>

Saint J

Who am I right now? I’m a recovering addict who is using social media outlets to show other young adults, teens, and just anyone that life isn’t perfect, but it has so much to offer. My message is for those who feel lost, alone, and depressed. My end goal is to be a public figure and really get the conversation started about mental health. Read more>>

Sarah Esthela

I love textures and the way something can shine or move. Aside from fashion, I love dancing and music, the way the beat or the rhythm changes in a song, or the way the body moves to tell a different story inspires me. I am a lover of technical garments that look like they belong in a sci-fi movie, my favorite designer is Iris Van Herpen because she is a master of textures. Read more>>
