MEET THE SAVAGE X GAME CHANGERS
In honor of Black History Month, we are celebrating 3 incredible Game Changers from our Savage X Community whose inspiring efforts are making big moves in our world. Rooted in history, strength and creativity, their work is bringing big changes to our future. We are pleased to share the stories of Marla Louissaint, Lon Rey and Celina Trowell!
AGE 23, ARTIST & ACTIVIST
Born in Haiti & raised in NYC, Marla uses multimedia platforms for telling stories of the Black experience in America while tackling issues of systemic inequality. Combining her education, art and activism, Marla not only creates content that informs and engages others on how to help dismantle longstanding prejudices in our society, but she also provides a safe space for her community to speak their truths through their own forms of expression.
AGE 34, MACRO SOCIAL WORKER, COMMUNITY ORGANIZER, HOMELESS ADVOCATE
A lifelong Brooklyn resident, Celina has dedicated her career to helping end homelessness in New York State. Rooted in her firm belief in the need for communal healing, Celina is a community organizer and has worked on prominent local campaigns that seek to bring critical resources to the homeless. Through her civic engagement and numerous volunteer outreach programs, she has helped mobilize disproportionately affected homeless New Yorkers and pushed civic leaders to provide life-saving services to this underserved community.
AGE 29, TEACHER, ARTIST, LGBTQIA+ ACTIVIST
Leveraging his personal experience with homelessness and Trans+ existence, Lon works to empower and offer a safe space for others through the power of art. As a teacher, he educates underrepresented middle school students in music and video production. As an activist, he performs outreach to Philadelphia’s most vulnerable homeless and LGBTQIA+ young adults.
These Game Changers are not just making history—they are opening up new possibilities for the next generations to come! We are happy to celebrate Marla, Lon and Celina’s successes and are proud to share their inspiring stories with our Savage X Community. Check out more about what they are doing on our IG!
