Another Black woman has made history in the world of pageantry.
The Brooklyn resident will use her platform to continue promoting diversity and representation in the media. “I’m planning doing a safe space and hav[ing] Zoom calls for women of color to do networking. Because as a woman of color in media, it’s such a small industry,” said Corbett, whose support resource, “She’s Represented,” is a space for women of color in corporate America to network and unwind.
As Miss Intercontinental USA, Corbett will represent as the goodwill ambassador for the Miss Intercontinental Organization, focusing on societal issues such as drug abuse, poverty eradication, gender equality, health, nutrition, and environmental conservation.
The pageant queen completed her studies at Pace University last May, graduating cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in business administration in advertising and integrated marketing communication. She extended her studies with a minor in digital marketing.
