Meet Chelsea Arrington of Generational Changers in Downtown

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chelsea Arrington.

Chelsea, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’m a native of Phenix City, Alabama. I’m a 2015 graduate of Auburn University, Auburn, AL. While attending Auburn University, I received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Entrepreneurship and Family Business. I’ve gained and developed in-depth knowledge and expertise in business, finance, marketing, and management.

Generational Changers was started from an idea between me and my younger sister, Ashley Arrington. We put our two thoughts together and it formed Generational Changers. In June 2017, Generational Changers was founded. Two years later, we are making a huge impact within the millennial generation just in this region. On a daily basis, we help millennials identify their true purpose in life, as well as get them engaged with operating in their purpose. Generational Changers are created with and for a PURPOSE destined to change generations.

I would say, God, my parents, and my education has allowed me to blossom more into my purpose, so I can help others blossom into theirs.

My ultimate goal in life is to develop and create more Generational Changers. I would best describe myself as an epitome of a Generational Changer.

Has it been a smooth road?
No, road always hasn’t been a smooth one. Obstacles are ubiquitous in everyday life. Some of the struggles I’ve faced while pursuing entrepreneurship was not having enough finances, support, and manpower to fulfill my God-given purpose. We often don’t realize how much strength we have until we’re challenged to use it. Despite being presented with many obstacles/challenges throughout life, it hasn’t stopped me from exercising my entrepreneurial spirit. I seem to find a way to get the funding and time to develop businesses that I am very passionate about which also fills a need in the market. Today, I continue to remain persistent because success is inevitable. I’m grateful for every obstacle and challenge I’ve faced. It has only made me stronger in pursuing my purpose and creating more Generational Changers.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Generational Changers story. Tell us more about your organization.

Community engagement is held through various mechanisms. We host live broadcasts through social media platforms providing millennials an opportunity to openly talk about issues that affect our generation. In addition, we strategically utilize every available avenue in efforts to raise awareness about social issues by involving millennials in a number of community service activities. Some of our most recent service projects have included Community-Wide Back-to-School Supply Giveaways, Community-Wide Easter Eggstravaganza, and deploying mentors for area group homes just to name a few.
