The husband and wife duo of Mohammed and Myesha Shuaibe were destined to be together. Born and raised in Oakland, California , the two met at Clara Mohammed School before eventually marrying and having two children. Their lives would take an unexpected turn when their two year old daughter asked if they loved her. Their answer was always the same, do you love yourself? That simple question provided the entrepreneur spark needed to create their unique brand, Melanin Gang. Melanin Gang is meant to inspire, celebrate, and empower Black people. Black representation is everything for Myesha and Mohammed Shuaibe and they hope through their efforts it will inspire others to dig deep and find the courage to create their own representation and not wait around for others do it.
