And her experience thus far has elevated her into leadership roles at one of the most sought after DJ schools in the United States, within her own company, Ladies of Sound, and in future business development projects. Today Maricel executes from a place of community, and firmly believes that there is room for all of us to grow to our full potential.
In this week’s episode, Maricel and host Shanetta McDonald discuss:
- Resilience bestowed up those who are first-generation.
- Recognizing and leaning into divine purpose and being divinely led.
- The ability women of color have to adapt and problem solve better than others.
