Welcome to Brown In The City! As women of color going after our dreams in NYC; we overcome obstacles daily. We created this space to express ourselves while inspiring and connecting other 'city shakers' of color.
Kelsey-Marie & LaPorsche
I am a twenty-something year old living in Brooklyn, NY. I was born in Brooklyn to Trinidadian parents and raised in Raleigh, NC. I moved back to NYC after I graduated from Winston-Salem State University in Winston-Salem, NC.
I am an actress, writer and lover of small coffee shops,avocado toast & beauty/fashion!
I am a huge believer in setting goals and accomplishing them and I believe that anything is possible if you're crazy enough to take a chance on yourself.
As a child, all of my teachers would talk about how big of an imagination that I have. I still have that imagination today and my aim is to never lose my imagination or creativity.
Brown in the City is definitely a creative outlet for me and I will be posting about my adventures in NYC, my struggles as a twenty-something year old professional of color and beautiful things/products that inspire me and that I love.
So, thank you for visiting our site & I hope to post content that will inspire, entertain & engage you.
Hey Brown People!
Thanks for visiting Brown in the City! My name is LaPorsche (but only my mom calls me that). I’m a Brooklyn born and raised city girl, who comes from a big family (1 of 5 kids). I have a Television background, freelancing in production for 3 years and now I have a web series, No Chaser.
I have a passion for story-telling, especially through video content and writing and especially diverse stories about people of color. It is my dream to be a TV show-runner and I currently have my head down and am doing the work towards that dream.
Brown in the City is a creative space for us and by us! I am proud to be a co-founder and of what this blog has become. I like to post for the culture, so click around, check out our content, follow us on social and join the conversations.
Umm what else? I love Jesus, helping people and dark chocolate, my guilty pleasure is ratchet reality TV! HA!
