Heir’s List NYC

The Heir’s List 3rd Annual Awards Gala  was held in Brooklyn New York inside of the beautiful room full of entrepreneurs, CEOS, stylists, designers, influencers, celebrities, and much more. Guests mixed and mingled in their best floral and spring popping arrangement of colors while sipping on liquor and tasty bites. Founder and Curator of Heirs List, Sherrod, says: To BLOOM, you must first be a seed”. His focus is to recognize people of color who are courageously breaking down barriers in various industries and living within their truth. There are 6 sectors of nominees honored in 2018 for the 2019 gala mentioning only the Top 40 Under 40 in the game.

It does not stop here. We were bopping our heads to tunes by Artist Moxie and a time to reflect as guest speaker, Tinzley B, had guests imaging a world where you are in charge. She says: “Imagine yourself in the dirt, like a seed because before you bloom you must first be a seed. It gets dark…it gets lonely sometimes…you may not know what to expect…but when you position yourself in a place with the right kind of water, fertilizer, the environment, the right people …you will begin to do what.. BLOOM”.
