College Park’s Rising Stars

The heart of our mission at VoyageATL is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of the Atlanta’s finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool.  Check out College Park’s rising stars below.

Tee Marie

I started my journey as an author in 2018. After writing my first book, it reignited a spark in me that I thought was lost. Writing! I missed writing so much that I started ghostwriting for others. I began writing blogs, then email marketing campaigns, a novel and most recently a Stage Play. The road has not been smooth at all. I started this journey when my oldest child was 11 and now she is 17 getting ready to graduate from high school! My husband has gone back to graduate school and I have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis along the way.  Read more>>

Cindy Tyler

My husband and I started our business in 2020 during the pandemic. I worked at TSA at the airport, and my husband was an entrepreneur for several years running a successful business. Unfortunately, life had its way and completely limited his physical ability to work and run his business as he had been use to for so many years. He was forced to pivot in his entrepreneurial pursuits and decided to start a business that would not require the same intensive physical labor while still stabilizing our family financially.

Mark Stucker

I was doing boarding school admissions and college counseling in Philadelphia from 2001-2009 but I wanted to move to Atlanta. I liked the weather, the cost of living and the thriving professional black community in Atlanta. I worked closely with the KIPP school district in Philadelphia, and Mark Manella, the superintendent, knew David Jernigan, the superintendent of KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools, so we called him on my behalf in early 2009, and we moved sold our home during the worst time and moved to Atlanta in 2009.

Sabrina Hall

I became interested in making soap because of my oldest daughter. She has eczema and would have out breaks in her face and other parts of her body. Store bought soap would only dry out her skin and make her irritated. I began to research different products to treat eczema and I came across a Youtube video of a woman who had a similar story and started making soap. I did further research on the soap making process and various ingredients. I began to make soap for my family and began to see a difference in my daughters skin. Read more>>


Right before COVID landed and shook us all out of our seats, I decided to make a career change. I hung out my shingle and opened my consulting firm, The Board Pro. I banked on the 25 years experience that I had garnered as a nonprofit fundraiser and confidently began to court nonprofit leaders and their boards. I knew that leadership at nonprofits can make or break their vitality, progress and success. I adopted the motto “Who’s At the top Matters.” Read more on my website, Read more>>

Angela Benton

I am a native of Atlanta, Georgia. After graduating from Westlake High School and attending college, I became an elementary school teacher. My passion for teaching and educating students carried me through a 27 year career in the field of education. I retired in 2021, but still continued to have a passion for teaching. I believe once an educator, always an educator. With that in mind, I decided to write my first children’s book. “Where in the World is Enzo? Enzo Goes to Savannah, Georgia” tells of an adventure a family takes to Savannah, Georgia. Read more>>

Zeanobia Talley

I worked at Delta Airlines for 19 years and I was just content with being there. Even though it was a repetitive job, the people weren’t and I enjoyed people. Before COVID hit, I became burnout and tried different areas within Delta to see if that would help but it didn’t. I wanted to find something that I was passionate about. I needed something that allowed me to be engaging, but not too engaging with customers. I got my lashes done for the first time and I enjoyed the experience. Read more>>
