"I started Cheekbone Beauty to empower and enhance the lives of Indigenous youth. I remind myself of that mission with every opportunity that I am faced with...if it’s not going to in some way, shape or form help the brand and empower Indigenous youth then I won’t spend the time. That’s the focus, and why we exist."
Jenn Harper is an Anishinaabe mother and entrepreneur who is passionate about breaking the generational educational crisis experienced by Indigenous youth. She's the founder and CEO of Cheekbone Beauty Cosmetics Inc. and donates 10 percent of Cheekbone's profits to Shannen's Dream, a First Nations Child & Family Caring Society campaign. She was recently featured on CBC's Dragons' Den but turned down their offer in favour of a deal with Raven Indigenous Capital Partners to better suit her brand's social mandate.
