"I am Founder of Golden Thread Society Ltd. Ms. C Dixon. I grew up right in the heart of Brooklyn NY, where I was involved in numerous extra curricular activities such as the NYU Upward bound Program, Early College Education, and extensive volunteer work for non-profit organizations such as the NAACP, A Free Bird, and the Aundre Lord Project. I am a Business & Marketing Major graduating from Touro College with my Associates & Bachelors of Arts. I have over 10 years experience in the Fashion Industry, with an extensive background in the production, and entertainment industries. I placed my experience, and passion for working with youth to train in the areas of my expertise. In my perspective it is extremely necessary to expose youth to areas of artistry outside of their communities and schools. My targets lie in the under developed/ developing areas of NYC. I am a Vendor for the Department of Education where my team and I provide a 25-30 week curriculum training in vast areas of the arts for aspiring creatives. I look forward to one day owning a facility for secondary education where all boroughs and age groups can join GTS for extensive training in areas of their interest at free/low cost."
