Online PR News – 03-November-2009 – – Silver Spring, MD—Nov. 2, 2009—Bora Mpinja had an idea for a tee shirt that she thought a lot of her friends and family would be interested in buying. After completing a certificate in entrepreneurship while enrolled as a graduate student at Howard University, that idea quickly grew into a business.

Mpinja, who recently graduated this past May with an MA degree in mass communication and media studies, started her own company called The Beautee Shop, LLC and partnered with a fulfillment house to launch

The online store specializes in hip and trendy multicultural tee shirts for men and women. It was created as a way for people to celebrate their ethnicity by wearing tee shirts that promote beauty among all races, colors and nationalities.

“The idea of beauty should not be reserved only for people with fair skin and straight hair,” said Mpinja who was raised in the United States by parents who immigrated from the Democratic Republic of Congo. “I want people to wear these shirts and make a statement about who they are and where they come from. There is beauty in everyone.”

The store offers a selection of American Apparel tee shirts with designs such as ‘Kiss Me I’m Mexican,’ ‘African King,’ and ‘Made in Africa.’ Sizes range from small to XXL. The company is continually adding new designs and expects to expand its inventory in the near future. To place an order please visit them at
