“As our marketing rep, I have witnessed Olivia be a natural teacher, and set examples for others. She has a lot to share and is an asset to the next generation of young professional women,” Malesa Plater, CEO, Limelight Extensions.
As an accomplished marketing professional living her dreams, Olivia Scott-Perkins created Omerge U. to give back. “Growing up in Memphis, I dreamt of a career utilizing my creativity and writing talent. With God’s blessings, I navigated the advertising, brand and media worlds in Chicago and NYC to build a solid professional reputation and diverse integrated marketing skill set. Believing “to whom much is given, much is required,” I offer myself and my experiences to help young women blaze their own marketing trails through Omerge U.,” says Scott-Perkins.
Two mentees will be selected per term, Feb-June (Term 1 – entries open now) and Aug-Dec (Term 2). The final recipients will be notified by February 17, 2014, and announced via social media and omergealliances.com.
