My name is Shekinah Monee. I am a Brand Strategist and blogger. I work within the beauty, fashion, and pageantry fields. I am based in New York City, but represent brands in NYC, London, Los Angeles, Chicago and Florida.
I specialize in thinking outside of the box and bringing brands together to build fruitful relationships. I am also the Executive Director for the Miss Queens Scholarship Organization (Miss Brooklyn and Miss Queens are official preliminaries for Miss America). While obtaining my MBA I honed my skills in Paris and London bringing International knowledge to the table. I have worked with several pageant systems, and at a boutique firm as a junior brand strategist. There I worked to hone my writing and interpersonal skills.
On a daily basis, I interact with small, mid and top tier media to secure placement, talent and spokesperson opportunities for my clients. My clients have received media placement in: Harper’s Bazaar, Teen Vogue, Fashion Bomb Daily, Fitness Magazine, Self Magazine, Glamour Magazine, XXL Magazine, The New York Post, Amsterdam News, The Examiner, The New York Daily News, The Brooklyn Paper, Vibe Vixen, Wild Beauty World, Canarsie Courier, Atlanta’s Voice, News One, Time Out New York, Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, The Curvy Socialite, The Audrey Johnson Show, Brazilian Times, Front Row Monthly, Madame Noire, NY Racked, Organic Beauty Vixen, Yoga Journal, Naturally Curly, In Her Shoes Blog, Fashion Vanity, just to name a few. I emphasize the importance of a social media presence and include social media marketing in the strategic planning.
I work to maximize your visibility and opportunities to grow. Since a lot of people are unfamiliar with how to do this, I will teach, assist, and create realistic ideas and goals. Essentially, brand strategists manage the development, initiation and continued marketing of a company, brand, or individual. I do this through branded marketing, advertising and sponsorships. Branding is defined visually through a logo and imagery that signifies a company’s essence or their promise to consumers. My goal is not to assist in your development or restructuring alone, but preparing you to have an empire. Let me perfect your vision and bring it to life.
