In 2018, Raynell Steward, a.k.a. Wuzzam Supa, showed the success you can have with social media and an entrepreneurial spirit. The New Orleans native was known on Instagram and Vine for her hilarious videos, including posts where she’d answer her followers’ life questions.
But she also had other big things going, like her own make-up line.
On Cyber Monday, she promoted a sale for her Crayon Case Cosmetics and in just one hour and 90 minutes, she raked in $1.2 million in sales. Supa celebrated the win in an emotional video below…
In the words of Supa, “no excuses” in 2019.
Your dreams could be a multi-million dollar vision.
It sucks to have to put an HBCU on blast, especially since many of them might not get as much attention as their predominantly White counterparts.
However, Howard University definitely effed up this year.
Back in March, it was revealed that financial aid administrators were receiving nearly $1 million in misappropriated financial aid funds between 2013 and 2017, exceeding the amount permitted by law.
Six employees were fired following an investigation and one employee in particular, Tyrone Hankerson, was thought to be someone who received the excessive funds. People on Twitter dragged him to D.C. and back for his gaudy wardrobe and supposedly lavish lifestyle.
Protests even took off at Howard from outraged students and their supporters.
It was a mess.
