Entrepreneur Extraordinaire

Felicia Browder is the quintessential lover of life, a multifaceted
businesswoman and artist who lives life with a ravenous zeal and
unquenchable appetite. The youngest woman to ever become chief
spokesperson for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, at
age 25, she also helped successfully campaign for a state bill that
allows foster children to go to college without incurring any
educational debt. A former foster child herself, it was an unparalleled
feeling of triumph.

“To this day, that is something I’m so proud of, and one of the best
feelings I’ve ever had,” says Browder, 28, the current director of
corporate communications for Mirant Energy. “Because it’s one thing to
be successful and success is all about you, and it’s another thing to
be significant, because significance is about everyone else doing
something for someone else, leaving a legacy. I am so happy that God
gave me that opportunity to be instrumental in that.”

Now Browder is instrumental in pretty much everything else. The
entrepreneur, actress, producer, philanthropist, and soon-to-be author
is producing a Black History Month stage play, El Hajj Malik: The Life
and Times of Malcolm X. She is a board member for the international
organization, Dress For Success, as well as the Youth Leadership
Council. She has also performed comedic routines at the Punchline
Comedy Club. Browder is now coming out with a business venture, called
Swanqi, which celebrates and accentuates businesswomen’s ventures. And,
finally, she is working on a documentary and accompanying book decrying
the objectification and exploitation of the black woman’s attributes in
hip-hop. – terry shropshire
