Keisha says her intention to is to harness the power of the internet to bring about positive change in the consumption habits of the Black community and attempt to help Black-own businesses distribute their products. According to her, the on line platform will be “a centralized marketplace for buying great Black-owned food brands.”

    After graduating from Hampton University, a historically Black college and university (HBCU), Keisha attended John Jay College. There, she completed a master’s degree in Forensic Psychology. After spending some time in her field, Keisha began to lose interest and sought something more exciting. This is where she reconnected with cooking. “Cooking to me represented happiness. For me, it’s the promise of spending time with my loved ones,” shared Keisha.
