DIVA DAY INTERNATIONAL, founded by Ms. Nickee Mack in 1995 is a well-respected brand within the Atlanta Georgia business community. The mission of Diva Day International is to change the way the world views Beauty by Celebrating, educating and employing Industry professionals in all sizes.  While Diva Day International is open to anyone in need of grooming and education, it is their work with women that caught the attention of PHAT Girl Fresh.71429_10153681109210257_474399918_n

Ms. Nickee is a recipient of the 2014 Life Styled honor.  She is a frequent contributor to Enchanted Closet charity organization, which is geared towards preteen and teen girls, as well as an active member within the private community. Ms Nickee has hosted, produced and been a part of several high profile shows and events over the years, such as appearing on Lifetime TelevisionFFFWeek, Trumpet Awards, NYFW, VH1’s R&B Divas,11Alive News , Jacksonville Fox 5 News, Spokesperson for Outre a multi-billion dollars hair company, FSO Atlanta, Bronner Brother and the list could go on and on. This Plus model turned Hair, Beauty and Fashion Mogul chooses to change the face of the industry one step at a time, with positive, strong, determined individuals who are focused, and destined for greatness.

The choice to partner with Diva Day International was based on the fact that I have witnessed so many women living their dreams due to the direction they have received from Diva Day International. Hosting events, choreography, and show productions are just small elements that make up this wonderful company that will expand all across the globe because of its multifaceted dynamics. I find it very heartwarming that Ms. Nickee unselfishly pours into the lives of women and girls who aspire to make a mark in the industry.  She has groomed many women not only to pursue their dreams but to have confidence and self love.  Many of these women have gone on to participate in shows like Full Figured Fashion Week and model for designers like Lavender’s Jungle and Jibri.wpid-img_7344788958317.jpeg

The goal of this partnership is to create a scholarship.  This scholarship will be available to women and girls who desire to be a part of the industry and find themselves financially challenged.  While the scholarship may not cover all of the expenses, it will plant a seed or nourish a blooming flower.
