South Broward’s Rising Stars

The heart of our mission at VoyageMIA is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks, we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of the South Florida’s finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool.  Check out inspiring stories from South Broward below.

Janei Francis

I started in 2017 making sugar scrubs then I went from scrubs into a full line a few years later which I’m currently rebranding that line! I received my Esthetician license in 2019 and began to work at few places but I never really found a good fit but I loved facials so much, so I started working from home! I transformed a room in my house into a spa, it was such a vibe, you could barely tell you were in a house, but it wasn’t a permanent solution. About a year later I signed the lease on my 1,280 sq ft spa! At the spa, we’re offer facials, waxing, and lashes by my me (@sugasugallc) I have an amazing nail tech (@deniseamournails) and two body sculptors (@larimar.beautybar) at the spa as well. I’d love to expand the team with a makeup artist, lash tech, and braider though as I do have booth rentals available. Read more>>

When it comes to music. From the early age of 5 you could find me hitting the drums and creating melodies on the piano. Experiencing the beauties of different sounds. As time progressed around high school, I began to experiment with singing not yet knowing the full range of where My singing would take me, I just started singing with my chorus class… Fast forward to today I have in the last ten years launched my solo journey as a music artist and I am looking to drop a project before the year is up.

Back in 2018 I was working manufacturing and distribution industry and had already been working in the same industry for over 10 years. I was working a regular 9-5 Job and was struggling to make ends meet with my husband. My husband got $40k to pay it and being a young family with 3 small children in Miami was rough. Every week, we would take out loans to help cover the bills. Being a mother to three beautiful children including one that is Special Needs, I knew I needed to do more to help get my family out of the financial struggle we were facing. One day while scrolling on Instagram, I saw that a local Microblading Artist was hosting a Giveaway for one lucky winner to win a Microblading Course for FREE. Read more>>

Kiyona Miah & Jasmine Mastin

The Black Yogis of South Florida community yoga & wellness group was created because we saw that there was a challenge in finding black wellness professionals, especially yoga instructors. We were two black women who recently moved to South Florida from out of state and were looking for other black-led yoga classes. In our search, we found each other. We searched for a meetup group or network of black wellness professionals and when we did not find it, so we created it. We provide visibility for all people locally and visiting South Florida interested in finding black-owned and led yoga, fitness, and other wellness businesses in the area.  Read more>>
