CeCe Olisa's TEDx Talk "How to Build Self Confidence"

Cocoa by CeCe, the body positive beauty brand, was developed by CeCe Olisa in partnership with our BPM Black-Owned Incubator. CeCe has been a prominent figure in the fashion industry since 2015 and has been named one of the “Top 10 New York Fashion Bloggers” by WhoWhatWear. CeCe has modeled and worked with brand partners including NIKE, Ford Motor Company, LOFT, Bloomingdales and more. She is also the co-Founder of theCURVYcon, a plus-size fashion convention during New York Fashion Week. CeCe’s TEDx Talk “How to Build Self Confidence” has over one million views.

CeCe Olisa is now taking her body positive messaging and platform and bringing it to the world of beauty. “Women often ask me, how do I love my body? I believe that love is a verb — it’s an action word. So the best way to begin loving your body is to start taking care of it.” – CeCe Olisa.

In a recent interview with House of Wise, CeCe discusses how she cultivates confidence with recipes, rituals, and routines. “In my experience, confidence doesn’t build my daily routine; my daily routine builds my confidence.” Her first product launch, The Doll Butter, was created to celebrate the routine of self-love and self-care, and her luxurious formula was made with only natural ingredients - beneficial for both the skin and the soul.
