About Us

Young Boss Media,  incorporated in New York and based in Chelsea, produces media that will empower women, youth, and aspiring entrepreneurs around the planet to gain ownership over their image, voice, and economic & political future. Our generation has been marked by rapidly changing economies, high unemployment, job automation, social media addiction, student loan debt, police brutality, social justice movements,  and now a global pandemic. 

With so many disruptions changing the way our society functions, mainstream media is still under-represented in gender, age, ethnicity, and sexual status. This lack of representation excludes our communities from obtaining information and resources that have the power to enhance our ability to survive and succeed in a challenging and confusing world. Young Boss Media is on a mission to change that!

We are building a global multi-media network for content creators from historically marginalized communities to produce and distribute high-quality media content that has a positive and long-term socio-economic impact on communities underrepresented in mainstream media.

Young Boss Media is led by its founder Monica Sekhmet Grant, a former labor organizer and now global media activist and entrepreneur. Monica's vision is to transform the world by training members of our communities to become empathetic media activists who think globally, while addressing issues on a local level.
