Our Girl Boss Crush: Jewel Burks


Start-up maven Jewel Burks has been both one of our most loyal customers and a perpetual source of inspiration and guidance for Team Colour.  Not only has this Howard alumna successfully built and raised funding for PartPic, a visual search app she co-founded, but she has also been named to Forbes' 30 under 30 and presented at the White House as part of the inaugural South by South Lawn festival.  

Jewel recently took some time out of her busy schedule to share some of her favorite things (and wisdom!) with us as she prepared to head out for a business trip.
