YLC History

Founder and CEO of YLC Candle, Lakesha Young – “The Candle Lady” is originally from Dawson, Georgia. Ms. Young currently lives and operate her business in Atlanta, Georgia. 
My journey in the candle industry begin in 2017 – That’s when “YLC Candle”, came to LIFE. It started in my kitchen in a 2-bedroom apartment, mixing various fragrances and wax together creating wonderful products that bring a great vibration to any surface. Handcrafting and manufacturing candles and freshener sprays became a performance ART to me. We offer other companies and brands the opportunity to develop their own fragrance which can be used in products for them to promote and sell for their business.
Honors includes interviewed and featured article in Voyage Magazine, 2020 Southwest Georgia STE(A)M Career Day, recipient of the 2020 Queen on the Rise Awards, and Forbes BLK certified. YLC Candle products were also featured in the 2022 Bettiah International Film Festival winning movie, “I Just Love That Man”. My products were also featured on KandiOnline and we’re one of the primary sponsors for the B.L.A.C.K. I.A.M. Awards shows and events. 
In my spare time I enjoy helping others, being active in the community and my biggest joy- giving back, especially to our youth. I have always had a passion for technology and mathematics and enjoy passing that knowledge on to our youth.  
Integrity, Taking Ownership of your Actions and Always listen to the concerns of your clients are some of my primary values. 
Something I live by that I will leave you with - 
“If you have enough time to be afraid, you have enough time to think about solutions.”
