Are you a game changer on your campus community? Do you love to write? Do you like being on-camera? Then, Essence has an opportunity for you! Essence launched its first College Ambassador Search and they are looking for three game changers from various campuses in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. to become their college ambassador. However, this morning I was able to get the scoop from Alee-Sha Steward from the Marketing Department of Essence and she lets me know exactly what they are looking for!
When asked, what is the goal of having a college ambassador to represent Essence, Steward informed us they really wanted to build an intimate community with millennials or young adults who want to write content, blog posts and be social for Essence. The overall mission of Essence is to build a support system of black women, a sisterhood and to uplift the community. With this mission, they want to start building this within the college campuses. This search gives college students (female and male) the opportunity to be a part of a publication that reaches a broad audience.
With understanding Essence’s overall mission and their goals of bringing opportunity to the college campuses, I asked Steward, what EXACTLY are you looking for in this candidate?! She said they are looking for a candidate with a dynamic personality, game changers, love a platform to vocalize, love to be on campus, and wants the opportunity to elevate what they have already started on their own on a bigger platform.
Now, some of you may be wondering why only in the states that I had previously stated? Well, Essence had a limited time for putting this campaign together so they had to limit the markets they have chosen. However, they are eventually going to expand it to all the states. So if you’re not from or attend any of the campuses in those states, no worries, Essence will expand soon!

One Final Note from Alee-Sha Steward of the Marketing Department at Essence:
“This is the opportunity to shine and grow and to align their brand to a company who has been doing this for over 40 years. It is a collaborative opportunity and we’re not telling them how to shine.”
For those who are not college students or on a college campus, please still share this information with others!
And good blessings to all those college students who will be applying for this opportunity!
