Marguerite T. Martin’s Unconventional Journey to Self Fulfillment

For most people, getting started on a professional journey is directed at having a more conventional and socially acceptable career. However, choosing an unconventional career path that fully satisfies one’s inner desire is no small feat as it requires a series of calculated steps and sacrifices. Marguerite T. Martin is now setting the trend for career fulfillment and happiness as one brave enough to follow the yearnings of her heart.

Marguerite T. Martin is a Haitian-native born and raised in Miami, Florida. Growing up, Marguerite had a religious upbringing as her father is the head pastor of the South Miami Heights Haitian Baptist Mission Emmanuel. Marguerite towed the conventional path seeking fulfillment and happiness as a child born into a devout Christian home. 

In the early 2000s, she worked as a video vixen for various artists, yet the empty void of dissatisfaction remained. As a proactive young woman, Marguerite had an idea that attending college and working a 9-5 job might bring her happiness, and so she started her journey through college. 

Several accomplishments followed her decision as she graduated in 2012 from Miami Dade College with an Associate’s Degree in Accounting and bagged a  Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Ashford University in 2013. Going further in her education, Marguerite sought and graduated with a Master’s Degree in Finance from Ashford University’s Forbes Business School. She then returned to obtain another Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management.

Like every fresh graduate after getting their college degree, Marguerite was faced with the big question of what to do next. After a stint in the corporate world, Marguerite T. Martin noted the disconnect between employees and human resources management. “The human resources management department is supposed to be a haven for employees, but I noticed that was not the case,” Marguerite explained. Marguerite sought to develop a software product that any organization can use to provide a solution to this disconnect, but her limited knowledge of tech thwarted her plans.

After leaving her last job, Marguerite was out of work for several months, and employers were not interested in hiring a person with no current Accounting or Human Resources experience. After months of rejections from the corporate world, Marguerite admitted that although all the degrees she acquired have helped her personal life immensely, she still wanted more out of life. 

She banked on her previous experience as a video vixen and a natural talent for performing in front of the camera to switch careers and became a Camgirl and a stripper. As expected, her decision was frowned upon by her parents, but Marguerite stood firm on her choice as she had finally found happiness.

One of the many unique things about Marguerite T. Martin is her innate ability to stay motivated and inspired despite all challenges life threw her way. She is now on a mission to rebrand herself, actively working towards gathering resources to execute her numerous ideas and bring comfort to people around her.
