Michanda Myles thought she had everything figured out. She was going to land a TV show on Oprah’s OWN and become the next talk superstar to spread her message of positivity and faith. However while standing in line for Oprah’s “Your Own Show” auditions, her calling took a drastically different direction during a phone conversation with one of her girlfriends, Quinci.
Said friend was giving Myles the encouragement she needed to do a stellar job during her audition but when Myles said something catchy, her friend encouraged the aspiring TV host to put it on a t-shirt.
“I wasn’t feeling her. After all, I wanted my own show! “ said Myles about her tunnel vision. “Little did I know, my dreams of impacting the world and leaving my legacy would come in the form of an idea I wasn’t even feeling initially – Virtuositee!”
Myles didn’t land her own show on Oprah’s network but when she got back home to Atlanta, she enlisted Quinci and another one of her friends to help launch My Virtuositee–a faith based goods company that is described as spreading the word of God through thought provoking, visually appealing clothing and products.
Their goal is to inspire dialogue about Christianity with products that marry faith and fashion. “We are not just a clothing company. We are a lifestyle brand, and Christianity is our lifestyle choice,” Myles says.
