Hosted By : Makeba Green

Born on the 27th day of August in 1994, Makeba Green began taking pictures at the age of five. As a child, Makeba was always told that she wouldn’t make it in life and was discouraged by many people as she was growing up. Although Makeba was berated by negative people, she didn’t let that discourage her. Instead, those same people motivated her to be the young Entrepreneur that she is today. With the support of family and friends Makeba pursued her dream to open her own photography business along with her other dream to become a Doctor. Her inspiration came not only from friends and family but from the various programs she attended throughout her childhood and adolescent years. These positive outlets showed her that her dream of becoming a business owner at a young age wasn’t as farfetched as many people believed it to be. Makeba also relied on the history of her people as sign of encouragement. Through reading and becoming familiar with her history, she realized that the trials and tribulations she faced weren’t issues that she endured alone but were issues she shared collectively with her people. This inspired Makeba to never give up on her dreams, no matter how outlandish they may sound to some people. She had the chance to show the world a little bit about how wonderful she is by being a guest on Channel 12, where she talked about her photography business and her ups and downs with her business. In the spring of 2013 she will be hosting her own photography gala along with her own photography classes. She will also be hosting an All White Affair and so much more. She feels that her business is like a relationship, in order to make it work you have to commit everyday to your goals and when the road gets tough you can never give up on your business. Quitting is the easiest thing to do, but Makeba has proved she doesn’t want the easy way out of life, she would rather have a challenge.
