Celeste is a multimedia creative, writing chameleon, and community leader from Toronto who is highly invested in creating opportunities for marginalized communities to flourish.
As a marketing and finance graduate, Celeste's personal and professional work has revolved around advancing economic and social opportunities for BIPOC youth. She has spent the last decade in a number of community-building capacities – from leading programs for newcomers to Canada, to planning civic engagement events, to supporting business owners in Haiti and Subsaharan Africa.
As a journalist whose bylines have been featured on platforms like EARMILK, SHIFTER Magazine, and ByBlacks.com, Celeste is dedicated to telling stories with authenticity and credibility that shine a light on the unique strengths and histories of the Black diaspora. Celeste has consistently supported local gems in the music scene while also shining a light on rising international acts through exclusive interviews, like triple-threat Trevor Jackson, gospel singer Dante Bowe, UK soul wonder Ama Lou, the multi-talented nephew of Michael Jackson: Jaafar Jackson, and Motown artist Asiahn.
Her multimedia work focuses on the not-for-profit and local music scene in Toronto and clients include McMaster University, Canderel, Hypertension Canada, Ryerson University, ADVANCE Music Canada, Ecojustice, and influencer Shannon Boodram.
