Each year prior to UNCC’s Homecoming, Live Finesse curates a list of individuals to highlight. “I Am My Brand” was created to help connect (in networking) the black population at UNC-Charlotte, as it continues to grow. The Live Finesse team believes it is also important to shine light on individuals who continue to grind and work hard.
