As Shakespeare once proclaimed, “All the world’s a stage.” And for three NYC-based movers and shakers — Met Opera dancer Lake Escobosa, DJ Cosmo, and philanthropist Lulu Cerone — this sentiment couldn’t be truer (though, a more accurate update could be “All the world’s her stage”). One common thread we learned from these powerhouse women, despite their varying creative fields, is that they’re not interested in seeking out someone else’s stage to act as a supporting player, but rather, they’re creating their own spotlight and living by their own rules for success. In other words, their self-made careers are taking center stage.
Ahead, we asked these like-minded leaders to share what it means to express themselves through their respective platforms. Outfitted in a uniform that is conducive to their mission — with PUMA’s stylish DEFY Luxe sneakers on their feet for extra support — Escobosa, Cosmo, and Cerone showcase how their looks complement the stories they want to tell and the aspirations they’d like to achieve. We have no doubt in our minds that we’ll be seeing these young talents make their way across many stages in the years to come.
