POJANEE "PJ" FLEURY
FOUNDER/CEO of BROWN EYEZ COMPANY
Pojanee or "PJ" is a Haitian-American Publisher, Author, and Inventor. She began a career in publishing on a whim. She wanted to bring a positive platform to the community, thus creating Brown Eyez Magazine in 2007. Well received, the publication served as a celebration of positive artistry and a source of holistic health information. In 2010, her publishing endeavors expanded; Pojanee launched two more magazines and in 2021, a newspaper.
Pojanee's network also expanded providing unique opportunities especially within community and social affairs. A much sought after organizer, Pojanee has served on the board of over 10 organizations, currently sitting on the board of three and holding positions in two others.
She now adds inventor to her repertoire, stemming from an idea sparked way back in 2006. It would prove to be her greatest feat. She shares her story of tribulation and triumph in a new book. Her first invention to hit the market, which is now patent-pending, is the world's first fully convertible panty (transforms from a panty to a thong). Her book, "Who's Going To Invent That, You? A Journey of Courage and Lessons for Every Inventor" serves as a testimony of the power of belief and determination!
Educated at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, PJ found her love for health and the social sciences. She completed her studies with a BA in Psychology and was very active in Stony Brook's Campus Student Life. PJ served as President of the Haitian Student Organization for two years and also served as Public Relations Chair and Vice-President of the organization. PJ also participated in various other organizations helping to organize art, cultural, and entertainment events which promoted unity and celebrated diversity on the campus.
After college, PJ worked at a not-for-profit organization in New York City, at which, she served as a Case Manager for two years. PJ then went on to become a Prevention Worker. In her role as a Prevention Worker, she conducted workshops and lectures on Safe Sex, HIV/AIDS and STD Awareness and Education, Youth Issues, and other general Health Issues. Dedicated to educating those around her and the community-at-large about wellness, she founded Brown Eyez Company (BEC) in 2007 to educate the public and serve as a resource for those seeking healthier lifestyles.
PJ’s passion for helping others and being involved in the community naturally extends to her native people of Haiti, establishing 4Haiti Magazine in 2010 to address the earthquake recovery process and to promote the RICH culture and history of Haiti. 4Haiti Magazine is now Kiskeya Magazine, which focuses on business and enterprise in Haiti and its diaspora. This shift in branding is due, in part, to the need for Haiti to become financially stable and also booming industries set to take off are little known, the magazine strives to promote Haiti as the next frontier, one familiar and yet untapped. This is true of other areas of focus PJ has honed; Africa is immensely rich and untapped in effective ways. PJ explores this in her role as contributing publisher of Western Africa Magazine, an international platform that connects global interests with Western Africa and surrounding regions.
PJ has found a way to give community members across all sectors meaningful platforms to communicate concerns, as well as victories. A true community advocate, PJ's choice medium is publishing, creating meaningful platforms that spread the message of well-being to all!
