KISH: Tell us about you..
Hello, my name is Markevia Mincey. I was born in Greenville, MS and raised in Wichita, KS. I am a mother of 3 amazing kids; Jermani, Journi, and Jeremiah and wife to retired NFL star Jeremy Mincey. I am an entrepreneur with a clothing line called Kumfee Kush and a hair and cosmetics line called MKeva Collection. Now, I am an author with my first children’s book called Mincey Kidz Adventures: Mom’s Big News. I graduated from Tennessee State with a Bachelor’s in Health Science concentration in Therapeutic Studies and Masters in Occupational Therapy.
KISH: What is your dream and how will accomplishing your dream benefit you and others?
Markevia: My dream, ultimately, is to leave a legacy for my children and while doing so accomplish as many things as possible! My children look up to me and their father so I want to make sure I set a great example for them.
KISH: Who or what inspired you to pursue this dream?
Markevia: I am inspired by my family and my childhood. I look at my children and I want to make sure I put them in position to win!
KISH: What challenges have you encountered while pursuing your dream?
Markevia: Some challenges I have encountered while trying to accomplish any dream/goal that I set for myself is visibility of my products. It can definitely be challenging whenever you start a new business venture and without the major marketing it makes things difficult. You can’t let that stop you though.
KISH: Who or what inspired you to keep pushing regardless of the challenges you’ve encountered?
Markevia: Regardless of any of the challenges I have faced to pursue any dream, goal or passion my family is what keeps me pushing forward. They are the ones that are there telling me I can do it even when I get discouraged!
KISH: Please provide final thoughts/advice for others by finishing this sentence… dream.
