Mikaiah G. Is the founder and visionary behind Generations Skate. As she approached her sixteenth birthday she decided instead of working at a fast food restaurant that she would start her own business. She loved skating but had to drive a distance to skate. Her dream of opening a roller rink near her home became a reality with the financial backing of Carlen McFadden, Real Estate Developer/ Investor and her mother J. Nicole Jackson Mayor/ Realtor/ Developer. Mikaiah G. first came up with the name "Generations Skate" over a year before opening the rink. She wanted a place where every generation would feel welcomed and celebrated for continuing the tradition of skating. She describes this space as a "Roller Lounge". She sphere headed the entire process of opening and managing the daily operations of the lounge. This young entrepreneur plans to go to Paul Quinn College to study Business.
