Elaine Welteroth Profile Information

  • This one’s for the fighters, the survivors, and the ones who overcome without ever trading your moral compass to get ahead. In light of the recent college admissions scandal, which is exposing how the privileged few are cheating systems that already disproportionately favor them, I just want to remind anyone who is feeling cheated by that same system of this: Your integrity, your work ethic, your vision, your perseverance, and your faith will get you further than any Ivy ever could. I am one of the many proud state college graduates who leveraged the education I could afford to carve my own path to success with unwavering passion, courage, and drive. It wasn’t easy and there were no short cuts. Growing up, I always dreamed of attending Stanford University, but that college dream was deferred once I woke up to the realities of just how exorbitant tuition is at a top-tier private institution. I didn’t know enough about funding opportunities then as a #firstgeneration college student. Even with the love of my family, at times I felt like I would never have the tools, the resources, or the guidance to get where I wanted to go. But I always knew that a path of integrity is the only worthwhile path to success. Be encouraged. Stay on your grind. And never let anyone convince you to compromise your moral compass to get ahead. Also: Shout out to my fellow state college success stories. Tell your story! I’m listening! #sacstate

  • A reluctantly awake, pre-caffeinated #Mondaymood en route to the office. (When you transform your pajama top into a werk blouse because...Monday.) Let’s go get it! 💪🏽☕️

  • “Our faith should never matter more than our humanity.” - @hasanminhaj thank you for shedding light on what it means to be an ally. It begins with seeing the plight of your neighbor as your own. This served as an important reminder for me to check in with my Muslim friends and family. I hope you’ll do the same, fam. ❤️

  • If you didn’t make it to church this morning, allow me to share this #internationalwomensday hymn with you from the one and only Tony-nominated, Grammy-winning singer/actress/comedian @daniebb3 who made my moderating dreams come true when I asked her on the spot if she could give the audience a little taste of her new soul-stirring single #BlackWoman...and then she busted out in song!! Mics were dropped! Wigs were snatched! Life was given! Thank you @levis for bringing together women I love and admire @karlawelchstylist @mariaosadoo to share how we can all spark change in our respective worlds. #iwd #ishapemyworld

  • Look ma, we’re in the @nytimes! 🙏🏽Consider this required weekend reading, fam! Cliff notes: Times have changed and so has @projectrunwaybravo. Thank you to the wonderful @vsaffron for capturing just how much the world has evolved since this cult-classic first hit the air. And just how ready the world is for this reboot, which airs NEXT WEEK ON MARCH 14TH. Flash sales, higher stakes, fresh voices, and the most inclusive cast yet: “You cannot underestimate the power of the digital revolution...You can no longer ignore marginalized voices who are saying, ‘Hey, this doesn’t reflect me, this offends me, this doesn’t include me.’” Link in stories. 📖

  • After a hectic week of work travel and red eyes, I’m dancing into #internationalwomensday feeling lifted by all the women in my life who inspire me to follow my heart and to keep living out the dreams of the women who came before me. P.S.A.! If you need something to motivate you and to keep you going—whether it’s an insane work week or a brutal workout—turn on some tunes from my ridiculously talented sister friend @adeline whose song “High Life” reminds me that the #skysthelimit whenever I’m feeling low. Shout out the women who keep you going below. Happy #iwd! @oldnavy #sponsored

  • Walking into the weekend like...🧚🏽‍♂️
Leave it to your girl to turn last night’s @projectrunwaybravo premiere party into a soul train line. Couldn’t help myself...! Because NEXT THURSDAY we are bringing the flavor back to Bravo for a whole new kind of #PROJECTRUNWAY. BTW, I blame my fellow judge @brandonmaxwell for this behavior because this dress had me feeling like #Studio54 era @patcleveland!!
