A Few Pretty Dope People That You Should Know
The heart of our mission is to shine a light on the Journey. In a social media driven world of instant gratification, we can easily get up caught up in thinking that success just happens over night.
When in reality, nothing great was ever built in a day.
Blemish was created to eliminate those stereotypes. By sharing the journeys of real people with real success stories (the kind you wouldn't necessarily find on your social feeds), we aim to inspire you to either put that bright idea to work OR to keep at it no matter what.
Sound broad? We know.
We aim high...and by the time you leave this site, so will you.
Meet The founder
Founder, Editor & Chief
Multimedia journalist, content creator, & overall creative at heart, Bryenne received her Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications and Psychology from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. She has worked in menswear fashion alongside a wide range of A-list celebrities & has published written content for various multimedia platforms including Social Lifestyle Magazine, Whereisthebuzzz, and All Def Digital.
She created BLEM/SH not only to display the rawness that we may face on the way to our destinations, but also because she knew that this platform would be a great way to inspire young creatives and entrepreneurs to keep going no matter what. Particularly, the ones who may be in their more earlier stages of success and are experiencing similar roadblocks that once tried to discourage her as well.
