If you don’t know—Anaya is a beauty/hair influencer, wardrobe stylist, and popular Youtuber from New York. She is known for her quirky jokes, fabulous hair/nails, and her big personality. Anaya started her tour to give time to speak to girl bosses all over the states and to provide them insight of the industry. Partnering with Malika Manning Marketing, Anaya provides guests on the tour, whether general or VIP, an abundance of information and helpful tips to jumpstart their careers.
Anaya has never been to DC so I had to show her a good time by inviting a few people for dinner at the famous #MilkAndHoneyDC. She was so excited! We had an arrangement of food from crab hash, lobster tails, shrimp and grits, and more to name. Check out the many locations in the DMV to experience it for yourself. Thanks to our sponsors: Warren (MJM PR) and Patrice (Projecht).
The fun continued at The Suites by Galaxy 5000 as the Girl Boss herself spoke to her fans and supporters of how she started in the industry and shared some gems of how to break into the industry as well as the practices of self care. Other speakers such as myself, Kelcia, and Chelsea-Alanaa spoke of how branding and social media presence is very important and ways of seeking assistance, if needed. I explained to a young entrepreneur: ”You do not have to go outside of DC or DMV to began your brand especially to network with other people—there’s events here every day and a ton of talented and large influencers right here”.
Leading into the luxurious VIP lounge filled with greenery and gold decor, guests immersed themselves into the full effect of the experience by purchasing items from Anaya’s collection of things and got the opportunity for to connect 1-on-1 with Anaya. While mingling, they tasted delicious treats sponsored by Bouché.
The event was a success and can’t wait to have Anaya back in the DMV!
