We had the good fortune of connecting with Miami Mazi and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Miami, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
im inspired by my mother. Watching her work everyday & go to school and still be able to take care of us and teach us how to be independent.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My business is a self made, I started from the bottom with nothing but a dream and a vision. I knew the city where i was living at couldn’t provide me with the opportunities and life I wanted. I decided to ” jump ” and step outside my comfort zone. To a new city, where I was able to create the life I wanted . One thing about Miami, is that everyone wants to move there and live there but its not for the weak. to be able to maintain in this city is the hardest challenge for the people. I Made my own relationships with people in a city I knew nothing about., to say that was easy is a lie. But when you believe in yourself, you keep going. Networking is key, and not burning bridges. Always making sure you are good wherever you go.
Currently I am focusing on launching my new clothing brand, fashion has always been my passion. I dont want to say too much about it, but the brand really represents me and what I stand for . Being different , being motivated. The launch is planned at the end of 2022. And of course im still the plug for all events, yachts , etc in Miami.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
The perfect Miami day would be to start your day off at the beach, soak up some sun, get some beautiful pictures by @photographybydavie and grab drinks at Voodoo on Ocean Drive. after , I would suggest to have an amazing dinner at Playa located on Lincoln Road at South Beach . After dinner, stop by one of the great nightclubs such as Mr Jones, Exchange or Liv , and for after party vibes visit Boobytrap.
If you are up for more local vibes, check out Wynwood which is the art district of the World for example try out Pilos. For your shopping needs go visit Out of Pocket also located in Wynwood. Check out the great art work thats literally all around you , on the walls, on the floor. An amazing experience.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I couldn’t do it without God, that always number 1. I want to shoutout everyone that took me in when I was down. The ones that helped me when I had nothing. I ve always had nothing but good people in my corner since as far as i can remember.
