Who is Kaelin Hurst, and what started your vision for YSF blog?
I’m a woman of Christ, blogger, driven, entrepreneur and fashionista! I’m a visionary; whenever I have a vision I make it happen. YSF blog was a vision God gave me to show young women that they can be a dope believer who represents Christ through fashion, faith, and beauty.
How long have you been an entrepreneur? How old is your business?
I started selling my Yung Saved & Fabulous T-shirt line in September 2015. My business was birthed in September 2015, so almost two years now!
What is different about the platform that you provide?
I believe that my platform is to help educate and bring young millennials together. I feel like my platform is based on who God has made me to be.
What is the purpose of the YSF blog?
My purpose for YSF blog is to share my testimony through events and workshops but also to allow others to see Christ within me.
Was the Visionary Panel your first event for your blog? Do you plan to have another event in the near future?
No, it was my third event. My first event for YSF blog was in March 2016 called “Embrace Your Beauty,” which I’ll be having another one soon this upcoming fall. Yes, I plan to have two more events this year!
YSF means Yung, Fabulous, and Saved. Some millennials aren’t drawn to anything that has to do with Christianity. Do you plan to only highlight entrepreneurs that are “saved,” or are you willing to work with those who aren’t saved, but who still have a vision?
I believe that a lot of millennials aren’t drawn to the church, but I believe that I’m supposed to be a vessel for nonbelievers. So, with having events and workshops, that can be a way for Christ to reach them. I’m willing to work with people who aren’t saved, but I will not compromise my vision that God instilled in me.
Who are some companies that you would like to engage with as sponsor?
I would definitely want to work with Nordstrom, Zara, H&M, Forever 21, and a few more companies.
How and why did you choose your panelists?
I chose my panelists based on who was willing to teach other millennials. But most of the panelists I have some style of relationship with so I just asked if they’d be willing to speak.
