Jayne Amelia talks with the gracious and always growing, Megan Green, Founder/CEO of Motivate Vibe Grow and Crownworkshops all over the world. "Service isn’t one act of kindness," she says. "It has been a lifestyle for me. I have been a leader and advocate for marginalized groups and people of color throughout my whole career. I have dedicated my life to serving others since my college days advocating for people suffering from homelessness in Philadelphia to now volunteering my hair care and styling services to the Skid Row homeless population in LA via My Friends House Foundation. In 2012, after experiencing a life changing mission trip to Chicago, I then led a service break trip to San Salvador, El Salvador with Project FIAT advocating for women, men and children via faith based missions with Villanova University. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Villanova University and a Master's in Communication Management from the University of Southern California. With my unique background working in the aerospace industry for seven years, facilitating dialogue around race and difference, designing corporate training, managing scholarship programs and becoming a hairstylist as a child to sustain myself, I am now equipped to marry my creative and corporate world via a lifestyle brand, MVG Naturals and the newly launched Crownworkshop. I started making products as a child and in 2013 developed an avocado based product business that I began building in 2016. I have learned a lot as an entrepreneur and now I want to make more of an impact through a social enterprise. As a stylist, I’ve always focused on equipping my clients with knowledge and tools to ensure that they themselves were self-sustainable and not dependent on her services to feel confident. I also learned that this work is critical for young girls to flourish and thrive. Therefore, I am now ready to take my knowledge, work ethic, experiences, tools and resources global to make an impact."
