Egma Sylne:
As a Haitian graphic artist and creative, Egma wants to harness the power of media to celebrate authenticity and foster self-love. She feels fortunate to have been born into a vibrant and rich culture, which serves as a constant source of inspiration for her creative perspective. Social media is Egma’s primary mode of artistic expression. Her obsession with mastering tools on platforms like TikTok and Instagram is key to her success in executing effective social media content for a variety of brands, including Hublot, Cartier, Tablé, and Barton G. 
The wisdom of a Roman African playwright summarizes Egma’s creative approach: “Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto,” or “I am a human; I consider nothing that is human alien to me.” These words are a beautiful reminder that what was possible for humanity’s greatest heroes is also possible for her as a creative.
