Hey Hey Fam! Welcome back to DPTaughtMe’s first installment of Prophyte Profiles where we spotlight bright, driven and community driven NPHC members in different industries. To kick off our fresh segment, we interviewed Ms. Koereyelle Dubose, career/branding consultant and author of the new book, Werk 101. Last week we discussed the passion and purpose behind brand, her biggest lessons learned in business and what keeps her motivated. Today, we’re going to explore what attracted her to Alpha Kappa Alpha, how AKA has helped develop her as a woman, and what she wants future Ivies to know about sorority life.
We here at DPTaughtMe love spotlighting Greeks who exemplify your mission and our hustle! This year, we’re rolling out a few new projects that allow us get more intimate with young, goal driven Greek Movers and Shakers . As we spring into a new season, we’d like to introduce you to our next project: Prophyte Profiles. In this new segment, we sit down with amazing NPHC members who are changing the game and their communities one boss move at a time. So, it was with perfect timing that we ran across Ms. Koereyelle DuBose at her Werk 101 Book Tour!
Right around the time of the 2015 Emmys, I ran across an amazing tshirt that embodied the true essence of #BlackExcellence and #BlackGirlMagic all in one. Coming off of a melanin high where men and women of color were being acknowledged for their amazing artistic contributions in television, the shirt couldn’t have come at a better time. Fast forward a few months later, I had no idea the Founder of the fantastic Foolies clothing line would be contacting me to be featured for his 28 Days of Dreamers Campaign.
Guess what Fam!? DPTaughtMe is heading to DC! That’s right! Ya girl will be speaking at the 9th Annual Blogging While Brown Conference this year, Sunday morning, July 17th in Washington D.C. This conference is a pretty big deal seeing as how huge media and blogging influencers such as Karen Civil, Necole Bitchie of XO Necole, Evita Robinson of the popular Nomadness Tribe (S/o to the Nomad fam) and much more have rocked the mic here.
