Leah McSweeney is the mastermind behind the Married to the Mob (MTTM NYC) brand. Founded in 2004, MTTM NYC has always been a streetwear brand with a strong voice that was made to disrupt the male dominance in the streetwear space. MTTM NYC is designed by women for women and the designs embody the culture, feminism, and a lot of personality. 

McSweeney collaborated with some of the best brands in the business including Kangol, KAWS, Burton, Wu-Tang, Colette, ALIFE, Baby G and Nike. MTTM NYC has been distributed in over 100 retailers, collaborated with over 30 brands and remained consistent with original collections and designs for over 15 years.

Yellowbrick believes that a student’s personal passion and hustle – rather than financial resources – should determine how far they can go. Along with our partners, our aim is to empower students who are passionate about streetwear to pursue rewarding career opportunities that can spark their interest and open doors to a fulfilling future.

Yellowbrick’s programs have the potential to change students lives by:

  • Providing a valuable credential, in the form of a certificate from a leading university, that will help open doors to career opportunities that students may not have otherwise known about
  • Developing real-world skills that empower students to seize these opportunities
  • Informing choices and helping students build an actionable roadmap toward setting and accomplishing career goals
  • Inspiring dreams and building the confidence and know-how to pursue them

Leah’s scholarship is to empower up-and-comers to pursue careers in streetwear and related fields.
