About the CEO
Documenting my road to medicine, I lead by example and showcase how I’ve redesigned the stigma of women in higher education.
A recent graduate located in the metro D.C. area, I am a Master of Physiology and a Spelman College graduate! As a future physician, YouTuber, business owner, style icon and pageant queen, I balance glitz glam with my real and raw Pre-Med experiences as a content creator on my YouTube channel: “Brelynn | BeautyandBrains”.
I first started creating content as a young adult in High School, when it was often assumed that I would not continue on to pursue a higher education, unless I focused on topics such as beauty and fashion. I was constantly discouraged as an aspiring doctor who wanted to major in STEM, and one day attend medical school. In long of a community of likeminded girls, Beauty and Brains was created for young women to feel welcomed and accepted when they're truly being themselves.
Now, as a Master of Physiology with over 48,000 subscribers and more than 5 million views in total, it is clear that a community for women embracing their many facets is needed and well received.
More than just a digital content creator, I am a self empowerment advocate, fighting for women’s rights across the world and striving to change fatal maternity statistics for black and brown women. From motivational speaking and mentorship, to fashion, hair and pageantry, the Beauty and Brains community that I’ve created works to both accept and encourage everyone, to fully be, whoever they truly are.
