Young, Ambitious, and Beautiful (Y.A.B.) is a women’s organization that operates as a conglomerate created by three college educated women thriving to be the best in every aspect of life. With a strong focus on entrepreneurial skill, networking, and overall career advancement, Y.A.B.’s goal is to support, uplift, and encourage women of color and to ultimately “Lift As We Climb”.
Y.A.B. is an organization started by three young women, Lauren Bealore, Courtney Griffin, and Brittany Daisy Sutton, that were college peers at Michigan State University that wanted to bring together other young women of color that not only possess a “job” or “career”, but bring a unique aesthetic to what they do. Y.A.B. has attended, hosted, and sponsored events and projects for women of color in Detroit, Chicago, New York, New Jersey, Atlanta, Texas, and DC, just to name a few. Their venture partnerships consists of 20 businesses that the organization promotes on a regular basis through marketing/advertising, product placement, event collaborations, and more. The organization has also established a collegiate internship program for young girls of Detroit and Metro Detroit to gain entrepreneurial experience through interning with our Social Media and Editorial Department of our business as well as a mentorship program entitled “From Girls to Young, Ambitious, and Beautiful Women” where the Founders go into inner city schools and prepare workshops for young girls on self-awareness and branding, social media etiquette, and entrepreneurship/career building.
