About Cheylaina

Cheylaina Fultz may have been raised as a small town girl, but she has always had big city dreams with an entrepreneurial spirit, and a passion for acting and media. Since 2012, she has planned weddings and events nationally and internationally. This led her to create The Cheylaina Fultz Talk Show, a podcast that shares stories of women who have overcome challenges and evolved into amazing entrepreneurs and powerful leaders.

In 2020, Cheylaina launched HBCU Legacy Fashion, where she is connecting youth to the historic legacy of fashion while yielding royalties to partner institutions and increasing enrollment rates through the HBCU Legacy Scholarship fund, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that provides guidance, resources and financial support to future and existing HBCU students. Because of HBCU Legacy Fashion, more black and brown students will become aware of the possibilities of attending college, and will obtain debt free degrees from an HBCU.

Cheylaina is a proud 2008 graduate of North Carolina A&T State University where she pledged Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, and obtained a degree in Journalism & Mass Communication with a concentration in Journalism & Electronic Media.
