Before we hop on this roller-coaster of adventure, I wanted to give you a little introduction to the mind that is Benjamin Coy, me.
A 6’2” melanin infused statue from Jacksonville, FL with dreams and aspirations larger than you can fathom. I am currently a student in Daytona Beach, FL at the Great Bethune-Cookman University (HAIL WILDCATS). There, I am a mass communications major specializing in public relations and advertising. I am a big entertainment, art, and fashion enthusiast and I’m excited to finally have a platform to express such passions. People like, Beyoncé, Will Smith, and Oprah Winfrey continue to be my sources of inspiration for success.
As far as music tastes goes, I really don’t listen to one singular genre. If the song/album has a good beat, message, or a song that just makes ya feel good; I’m likely to give it a listen! However, I am unapologetically a devout member of the ‘BeyHive’ and I do have a slight obsession with 90s-2000s gangsta rap. I also draw musical inspiration from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Chance the Rapper, and The Fisk Jubilee Singers.
With fashion, I’m kind of a puzzle of complexities. My style can be so many different waves which is what I appreciate about it. I’m definitely an advocate for fashion being a peek into the soul, which is why I dress based on emotions rather than anything else. However, I do gravitate more toward a sophisticated, chic, yet bold closet.
Overall, I’m really excited to showcase the craziness that goes in my mind and hopefully I’m not the only one who can appreciate this unique perspective.
