Hailing from Columbia, SC, Desiree has made a name for herself in the industry with her brand Aligned Quality Gemz over the past few years. You can find Desiree's artistic jewelry on runways, special events, and online. Her work has been featured in various spaces, including Eco Runways, Gullah Fashion, and Collab Content. In an industry that has historically lacked representation and opportunities for marginalized groups, Desiree has personally experienced prejudice and a lack of recognition. However, she has used those challenges to create a network of support for Black female businesses as founder of the nonprofit organization, The BRWN GRLZ Collective. Her creative passion for community and the education of our youth has led her to serve the students and their families here at Akoma Cares.
