Raised by 9 people in 34 months
My name is Shemekka Ebony.  My partner Michael Stewart-Isaacs and I have been touring  the United States with the torch of #IAmBrilliant  in an Intentional effort to empower citizens and their communities towards greater community engagement.

Our tour has mostly been self funded since 2016 along with the help of a few of our Brilliant Friends and Family.  These funds have been used to go into cities, host speaker series  and trainings for youth and community leaders. The funding is used to invest into existing community organizers that are creating #IAmBrilliant learning and engaging opportunities. 

Our vision is to engage a wide range of people to illuninate what makes them distinctive and brilliant. #IAMBRILLIANT is the People’s Campaign to Innovate the Global Citizen by inspiring critical strategic thinkers to use their gifts for meaningful social contributions. “Have you ever been asked, what makes you brilliant?” If not, we create the experiencesI Am Brilliant Tour Photos

to assist you in finding the answer to this elusive question.

The campaign is about human engagement and empowerment through social media storytelling. We capture your image and you share your brilliance with your story.

This campaign is important to our staff because we have given ours lives to "Be The Change" our communities can benefit from.  As a community coach, I understand that behavior and knowledge are both learned.  My hypothesis is this:

"If people can discover their gifts (#IAmBrilliant) and  learn of ways to earn income (#socialenterprise), while helping others, our communities increase the potential of brilliant economic growth."

From the field.....

Early Adapters Show Their Brilliance

Volunteers across the country waste no time in showing and sharing their Brilliance. We believe that when you can connect your gift with positive change in your community, you are sharing your Brilliant gifts with others. We met brilliant people that were community leaders, Olympic Trial Candidates, NBA professionals like PJ Tucker, Special Coaches like Nate McMillan, as well as Activist like Nikki Giovanni.
