Today we are joined by Personal and Fashion Stylist Jared L. White for an in-depth conversation to better understand his life’s experiences and evolution as a gay black man that propelled his work as a stylist and activist. Jared has always been one to carry such a positive outlook on life, while also dealing with his own internal negativities that would try to creep in. Together we chat through not only life in corporate America, but also the impressive dynamic of being around so many successful corporate women and the support systems they provided. We touch on the lack of diversity in corporate America and racist ideals that still exist in several U.S. cities today.
Going through challenging times in life, Jared learned how to keep an agile mindset along with the importance of a strong foundation. In fact, the mentality he now carries is due in part to a lot of his own learning as a millennial experiencing various economic down turns. We go on to discuss the growth that 2020 bestowed upon us a collective as well Jared’s own experience finding his voice, creative outlets, and leaning into the acts of injustice. In addition to leaning into (instead of turning away) the traumatizing events of this year, Jared has spent several years leaning into his own multifaceted parts, truly embodying his truest self. These experiences have further shaped his work in standing up as an activist for his community and being a voice for the generations to follow.
