Ella-Lorraine, whose mum is also a Princeton alumnus told MAKERS that she loved her daughter’s concept because her focus was on Michelle’s accomplishments as an individual, not just as an attachment.

According to her, Ella-Lorraine has never known a time when Black women weren’t publicly honored and ‘Black girl magic’ wasn’t a highly celebrated thing, so, they try to surround Ella-Lorraine with women who are go-getters like Michelle, women who are independent and smart, level-headed and loving.
