Because of her, there’s a brighter light on Black Excellence.
She began her career in online advertising with Microsoft and over the past decade she has worked with a variety of companies such as American Family Insurance, Nickelodeon, Genworth Financial, BET, the Oprah Winfrey Network and Custom Ink to name a few.
Always socially conscious with a burning desire to effect change, Eunique began exploring and developing ways she could marry her business acumen with her artistic passions and the results were tremendous. In February 2012, following the death of Trayvon Martin, Eunique created her first photo awareness campaign – I AM Trayvon Martin. The campaign spread through social media and online news outlets around the world and inspired others to use their voice to highlight social injustices and the need for change.
In 2013, Eunique launched Because of Them We Can® an award-winning campaign and platform that reaches millions of people monthly as it uplifts and amplifies positive news. Launched during Black History Month with a mission to empower the next generation to honor the legacy of their ancestors, the campaign featured photographs of adorable children channeling leaders, activists, and celebrities, past and present. It has evolved into a positive platform for Black Excellence that reaches millions of people each month. It’s latest — a subscription box that teaches kids Black excellence and history on a monthly basis.
Throughout her travels promoting Because of Them We Can, Eunique met fellow dreamers and started thinking, “What if we had a space where we could build our dreams and at the same time, build our village?” So, she created it. In 2018, Eunique launched Dream Village, a co-working space for dreamers that allows them to build a supportive community in both physical and virtual spaces. The space hopes to bring back the village values that every community needs. The very first Dream Village opened right outside of DC in Hyattsville, MD in February 2018.
A native Marylander, Eunique received her Bachelor’s degree from Bowie State University. She is a ADCOLOR Rockstar, a Root100 honoree, a White House Champion of Change and has been featured on numerous media outlets, including MSNBC and O Magazine. She credits her biggest support and inspiration to her husband Christopher and their children, Chase, Amari and Sage.
