My name is Kamilah Dotson and I was born and raised in the gritty city of Cleveland, Ohio. Inspired by my surroundings, I discovered my love for entrepreneurship. As a recent graduate of Miami University with a degree in Social Justice and Entrepreneurship, I have made it my personal mission to elevate my community through beauty with the introduction of KCD Cosmetics. I fell in love with makeup when I was 15 years old. My favorite makeup product is foundation because I love a flawless finish. I believe that makeup is supposed to enhance the beautiful features that we already have. I also believe that businesses have a responsibility to uplift the communities that their consumers inhabit and we promise to do that here at KCD Cosmetics.
My name is Selena Asgedom. I am originally from Ethiopia located in the eastern part of Africa. I have been interested in the chemistry field since childhood, especially when it comes to formulating skin care products and cosmetics. I dug deeper into the specifics of formulation by attending The University of Toledo where I got my undergraduate degree in Cosmetic Science and Formulation design. I love formulating make up as it combines the different aspects of science and art in order to have a successful product. Helping communities incorporate make up into their daily lives by creating clean and affordable products will be one of the most fulfilling part of my venture.
