MENTEE OF THE MONTH:

Arana Jae
Ajae Beaute

Meet our Mentee of the Month, Arana Jae. Arana is a 26 year-old first generation Entrepreneur and Virginia native. She is the Founder and CEO of Ajae Beaute, which is a black and woman-owned vegan and cruelty-free beauty and cosmetic brand. Ajaé Beauté was created to provide inexpensive beauty products curated specifically for women with sensitive skin.

"I joined WOL’s Mentorship Program after seeing how gracefully Tamani was able to balance all of her business ventures. I knew that I wanted to be around other like-minded female entrepreneurs. As a new entrepreneur it’s hard balancing life and trying to build your business from the ground up. This mentorship program has definitely made it easier for me by keeping me grounded and focused on growing my business.”

After graduating from high school, Arana discovered that her skin was sensitive to certain products. She found herself shopping for clean beauty products often. Most of the products that she found were either expensive or contained questionable ingredients. She didn't want that for her brand, Ajae Beaute. As she wanted to create a beauty brand that was not only inexpensive but also provided 100% vegan and cruelty free products, she was able to do so with her brand, successfully. "I want all of our Beautés to feel confident in their skin", says Arana.

 

As she has grown exponentially within our program within such a short amount of time, our Founder and CEO, @tamanilyn, is honored to be on her journey of growth with her and we can’t wait to see all of the amazing things she accomplishes ahead.
