Draya Michele is a designer, actress, businesswoman and mother of two beautiful boys. She first made public attention as Chris Brown’s girlfriend and gained further public attention when she become apart of VH1’s Basketball Wives.
Draya literally rebranded herself from a Reality TV star to a self-made millionaire businesswoman. Her first business venture, Mint Swim, “a swimwear line designed with all shapes and sizes in mind,” launched in 2011. Mint Swim made more than $1 million in sales in 2015 and it all started with $12,000 that she saved and invested into the company.
Draya is now the owner of two other clothing companies, a stylish lifestyle brand, Fine Ass Girls, started in 2013 and a sleek lifestyle brand, Beige and Coco, that started in 2016. Draya is somebody I compare to Cardi B. They both used their platform on the Reality TV show to turn their brand around and do what the fuck it is that they wanted to do in life. Cardi B became a rapper and Draya became a businesswoman and left the show when they were supposed to instead of holding onto it because it was all they had going for themselves.
Outside of her business ventures, Draya has been getting into her acting bag as well. Her first movie appearance was in TV One’s Will to Love and most recently she appeared in Fox’s TV series, Star. As far as I am concerned, Draya is a female powerhouse who looks good doing her business
