A true innovator, Antonia Opiah founded her first venture in 2009, an online film festival called Beneath the Earth that aimed to get otherwise unrecognized filmmakers noticed. It ran through 2015. In 2013, she founded Un-Ruly.com after noticing a lack of resources for black women on traditional beauty sites. Since then, Un-Ruly has expanded to include the company Yeluchi, an on-demand hairstyling service specially targeted at people with textured hair. She has also founded her own media group, called Unadorned Media, which is the first media network catering to black beauty specifically.
Antonia Opiah graduated NYU's Stern School of Business with a B.S. in Marketing, Creative Writing, and Entertainment Marketing.
