"Beauty is humanity not vanity"
Tanisha Akinloye, Founder & CEO Empowering Through Beauty Foundation, TEDx Speaker, Motivational Speaker, Leadership Expert, Author, Personal Coach, and Licensed Cosmetologist
Tanisha Akinloye, founder of Empowering Through Beauty Foundation in Fairfield County, Connecticut is empowering people, especially women and girls of all backgrounds. After overcoming low self esteem, misfortune, and shame, Tanisha realized that power and self-worth are not defined by circumstance, material possessions, or the opinions of others. Led by this knowledge and her strong faith, she set out to create a non-profit organization that combined her skills in the beauty industry as a salon owner, with her education in psychology. As a result, Empowering Through Beauty Foundation was born in 2010. Empowering Through Beauty Foundation mission is to provide faith, love, and hope to those in need of transformation in their life. Through her organization she has created partnerships with women organizations, community organizations, churches, beauty salons, barbershops, and beauty professionals forming pathways for charitable contributions to the local community including survivors of domestic violence and addiction, homeless people, and inner city schools. They offers leadership training and development, makeovers and valuable resources to prepare men and women to resume their positions in the workforce, obtain housing, attend educational programs, and better their lives.
Tanisha has presented at numerous conferences spanning the east coast including two TEDX Conferences. As a result, what began as an idea to help women, has developed into a powerful movement. Tanisha’s Empowering Through Beauty Expo & Conference is dedicated to the empowerment of all women. Her most recent endeavor is the Identity Leadership Summit, which provides inner city school students leadership and character building skills. Another way that she empowers is through her Beauty Queens Conference which teaches pre-teens and teenage girls confidence and self-worth by focusing on leadership and peer mentoring.
Tanisha Akinloye, is changing the face of beauty by evoking humanity, not vanity. Empowering Through Beauty prides itself in being the source of hope, dignity, and self confidence to all they serve.
As a result, she has received nationwide recognition, among others by U.S. Senator Chris Murphy, the National Black Professional Women Association, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. She has been featured by TEDX Tryon, CBN 700 Club, KLove National Radio Broadcast, Fox Business Network, Modern Salon, Essence, Madame Noire, Connecticut Magazine, Bold Life Magazine and several other media outlets.
