The Co-Founders of Y.A.B.
As a Michigan State University Graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Relations and Policy, I have set myself up to have a background that can flourish in multiple areas. I have decided to utilize my degree to further pursue a Masters of Arts in Public Policy from The New England College. As an MAPP student, I have garnered much experience in the world of politics and policy, including working as a Fellow for the Millenial Mayors Congress Program through the Michigan Suburbs Alliance as well as campaign work for candidates within local government. I have continued in this field by currently working as the Finance Assistant for State Representative Rudy Hobbs Congressional Campaign. My ultimate goal is to develop my own legislative consulting firm. Later in life, I plan to retire and become a philanthropist while owning the businesses that have been cultivated from my work experience. I see YAB as the quintessential network for young women of color to utilize. It will be both uplifting and resourceful, as well as provide tools for other young women to use as stepping stones to their own personal success. We will create a sense of sisterhood that is not necessarily seen in everyday society. We will be the examples of Young Ambitious & Beautiful women.
Detroit, Michigan native, Michigan State University and DePaul University graduate turned into a Chicago, Illinois Professor. I have always had a passion for seeing other succeed and looking fabulous while doing it. After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Professional Writing and a Bachelor of Arts in Media, Arts and Technology from Michigan State University where I met my fellow Co-Founders, I decided to use those skills to start my own company Just The Beginning LLC. JTB provides full-service start-up services and consulting to non-profits. I believe that all African American girls and women, including those from distressed backgrounds have the potential to become Young, Ambitious and Beautiful, especially with the support and encouragement from those women that have been there. Remember: this is Just The Beginning.

I am Brittany (Daisy) Sutton, Co-Founder of Y.A.B. and Co-Owner of The Style Dolls: Wardrobe Styling and Image Consulting Company. While pursuing a B.A. in Fashion Marketing and Management yet craving to uplift and unite fellow successful young women, the Y.A.B. vision was created. In hopes to educate, train, & motivate young women professionally, my ultimate goal is to be a university professor within a vigorous fashion degree program. I am currently performing the “ground work” to blossom The Style Dolls into the ultimate Glam House; providing every essential need for both the couture and lifestyle fashion industry. On my journey to becoming a fashion icon, I hope to inspire young women all over the world. Despite many hardships and setbacks, I have more faith and determination than ever. I’ve always been a dream chaser; but one day I decided to wake up and turn my dream into a reality...and now I am actively living my dream. I am Young Ambitious & Beautiful….and so are YOU...
