Meet The Team

Marla Louissaint

Founder & Treasurer

Marla is a Haitian-born performer, published model, activist and student in her last semester of her Computer science degree at Fordham University. Her professional career launched after being named the Jimmy Award winner for Best Actress in 2015 which opened the door for her on and off-Broadway (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), television (Netflix’s Seven Seconds), and commercial credits. While finishing her degree, she has continued to push her creative voice in several disciplines and has made it her mission to make art that claims ownership of her Blackness and her Black experience unapologetically, and is committed to encourage all people to do the same.
