    Season 1 Episode 03  “BRAIDA GYAL RIN” Serina Green 
    22:14
    Young black and brown girls raised in households where their mothers are unable to style their hair to their liking are often forced to become their own hairstylists. Some as young as six years old practice intricate styles on Barbie dolls until they are able to land a first client. This rings true for Serina Green – a self-taught 23-year-old hairstylist from Scarborough, Ontario. 
    Growing up in the city’s east end, her styling abilities caught the attention of family members, neighbours and schoolmates alike. She occupied any space she could; turning anything from gym bleachers to the school’s cafeteria tables into a makeshift salon. 
    Similar to the path of many creatives in pursuit of a dream, in 2018, Serina encountered two back-to-back life-altering near-death experiences within a 2-month span, changing her drive and passion for hairstyling from just something to do, to a livelihood.
    To date, Serina has styled hair for many recognizable figures such as WondaGurl who is best known for her work with industry heavyweights such as Jay Z, Travis Scott & SZA. She has also styled a series of the Toronto Raptors such as OG Anunoby, Eric Moreland, NBA shooting guard Andrew Wiggins of the Minnesota Timberwolves, former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman, and former Los Angeles Dodgers player Matt Kemp, just to name a few.
    Serina has her sights on growing her clientele and creating content that educates the masses on hair care specifically speaking to how choosing the right products, tools and following a routine can change the course of one’s hair journey.

     Jodie is currently employed within the Ministry of Public Works and Ports in Dominica as a civil engineer. Her daring and go-getter attitude has led her behind the wheels of concrete trucks, excavators and bobcats.

    The first company to bring a line of natural vegan lipsticks and cacoa lip balms. Her company is the perfect matchmaker, marrying indigenous herbal and remedial culture with modern cosmetic formulation to create unique, high quality and effective products made from local and sustainably sourced ingredients. These natural products feel luxurious and smell divine, with product prices ranging from XCD$25 to XCD$45 dollars.
    She has received many awards including the first 767 Girls Rock awards for her creativity and was valedictorian of the WINC (Women Innovators Network In The Caribbean) programme.  
    She has transformed the small business culture on the island with her creative marketing strategies.
