The Savvy and Beautiful website’s goal is for young women to share and gain advice on being the absolute best they can be.
About the Founder
Hi! I am Emoijah Bridges and I am a University of Florida student. I started this blog when I was 15 years old, and this site was catered to young women of color such as myself. I want to share everything I can with other young women. As a Journalism major, I am also the secretary of my university’s National Broadcasting Society, a member of the National Association of Black Journalists, and a writer for the Black Student Union’s ROOTS Magazine.

Shaynah Boulay: Model
Hi lovelies! My name is Shaynah Boulay and I am a second-year Industrial engineering major with two minors in business administration and actuarial science. I spend most of my time in the library or getting to know new people but on campus, I am involved in both in the National Society for Black Engineers club and club creole. I recently participated in the annual Mr. and Ms. Club Creole where I earned the awards for best talent, most money raised and ultimately Ms. Club Creole! I look forward to others joining me as I continue on my journey through college and I can’t wait to see what is in store!
Michlyne Bellas: Model
Kisa li fè babby! Or in other words, “What it do baby”. My name is Michlyne Bellas and I am a third-year Business Administration major. I am a Haitian American who loves to get lost and go on adventures. Throughout the gator community, I am the treasurer of Hope Meals and Vice President of the Minority Business Society. While I’m almost finished with my gator experience, I hope to leave with great memories and a positive influence on others.

Coming to you from the 212 and live from the 845, it’s your girl Acacia! I am currently a sophomore at the University of Florida with a major in Spanish pursuing a Pre-PA track.
