Now, no one can ever take Oprah’s place. She’s one of the greatest business women of our time, but to young women believing for a dream to come true, Karen Civil is the next best thing. The “Digital Renaissance Woman,” as she labels herself on Instagram, is this weeks Vixen #WomanCrushWednesday and all for great reasons. Not only is the young Brooklyn born, New Jersey raised entrepreneur taking the entertainment world by storm, she’s the epitome of black beauty. She’s smart, driven, focused and honestly just beginning, because at the age of 30, she is still very young.
Karen realized at an early age that the Internet would be her way into the industry. After creating a Backstreet Boys fan site and getting the chance to meet the boy band because of it, she learned how the internet can be used to her advantage. From there, she held an internship at Hot 97, worked with Diplomat Records, started her own blog (KarenCivil.com), was the social media manager for Beats By Dre, previously partnered with Carol’s Daughter and CoverGirl, launched a playground in Haiti, co-managed Nipsey Hussle and the list is sure to get longer.
The young entrepreneur is a women to watch and we believe she will continue to build her empire in strategic and memorable ways.
