Winner of the 2013-2014 YBG Nina Simone Award for Artistic Excellence / by Shanelle Gabriel

Just a quick thank you to the awesome folk at Young Gifted & Black Entrepeneurial Awards for selecting me as the winner of the 2013-2014 YBG Nina Simone Award for Artistic Excellence. It was an amazing night at LQ-NYC where myself and several of the premier African & Caribbean Americans were recognized for our various contributions in our different ways, from fashion to management to public service.
