Creator & Founder
Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio and currently residing in Orlando, Florida, Martinique Brown is the Owner & Founder of Today I Want To Be. Growing up Martinique always had an entrepreneurial spirit. From having her own candy store as a child to re-imaging clothes with the hopes of being a fashion designer, there were multiple things she wanted to become.
After high school she pursued a Bachelors of Science in Business Management from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and pursued becoming a Retail Buyer. As she worked in corporate retail, she wasn't happy with the career path she was on so she packed her bags and moved to New Orleans, Louisiana. There she pursued a Masters of Divinity (M.Div.) with a specialization in Collegiate Ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
After graduating with her M.Div. she was not able to find a job so she began to volunteer at a non-profit as a Volunteer Coordinator. To her surprise while in her 30's she learned of a new career field. Although she eventually got a full-time job as a Volunteer Coordinator she still wasn't content with her professional choice. While walking on this frustrating journey that lasted another five years, she never gave up hope to finding a career she truly enjoyed because she knew God created her for a reason. It wasn't until her contractual job as a Volunteer Coordinator ended in December 2018 that she decided to start her own businesses. She began focusing on the things she truly enjoyed and was determined to create ways to make a living from doing what she loved.
"I created Today I Want To Be to help young people explore different career fields and be inspired to pursue careers based on their interest and passion and find ways to create a successful, meaningful, and fulfilling life."
