Marcelle Lashley-Kaboré (J.Marcelle) is passionate about impacting change. In 2013, inspired by her first visit to Africa, she added Social Entrepreneur to her already successful career path as an Experiential Marketing Content Curator and Producer. Her purpose is to be an advocate and provide a platform to be a voice for the voiceless. She desires to help equip youth to re-write their own narrative and rise against their injustices. In her youth development work to date, she has used multimedia to create a voice and choice platform for youth which has garnered 5 NY Emmy® nominations for social justice and documentary film pieces.
Marcelle’s goal is to be impactful on a global level and become a multi-media mogul in the space of youth development and positive content for youth. Through the vessel of entertainment, Marcelle will continue to reach young women and girls in underserved communities around the world by creating content that is a powerful safe haven for them to grow, learn, and literally change the path of their life. Whether through film, song, or animation, Marcelle is creating “edutainment” to help rewrite the narrative of young people today.
“Our youth are faced with constant hopelessness, especially in today’s media. I want to create vehicles and platforms that will let the world know that the younger generations are going to lead us into a new future as long as we continue to have an effective hand in molding them.”
