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 currently work as fellow for the Millenial Mayors Congress Program through the Michigan Suburbs Alliance. There I am able to utilize my skills in leadership to delegate ideas to members of Congress and Michigan Mayors as well as the younger population of Michigan to adequately implement policies that are beneficial to all. My ultimate goal is to develop my own legislative consulting firm. At 50, 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 and Michigan State University graduate as well as Chicago entrepreneur and DePaul University Graduate student, I have always had a passion for helping others 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, I decided to use those skills to start my own company Just The Beginning LLC, which provides services to start-ups, non-profits, and existing small businesses. 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 Daisy Bee Sutton, one of the Co-Founders of Y.A.B. and Co-Owner of The Style Dolls: Wardrobe Styling and Image Consulting Company. While pursuing a degree in Fashion Marketing and Management yet craving to uplift and unite fellow successful young women, I knew Y.A.B. would work as a genius plan. My ultimate goal is to have a corporate position as a Fashion Buyer for a major retailer and blossom The Style Dolls into the ultimate Glam House; providing every essential need for the couture fashion industry. On my journey of 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...
