Part of the reality of growing up in a family run by a single mom, is having to move in order to live within our means.  While I hated it as a child, my mother thought it was important take these moves as an opportunity to expose my younger brother and me to the vast diversity within our city.  For this I am now thankful, and I have a true appreciation for all cultures, and the socioeconomic backgrounds of those around me.

Over the past few years I have found that especially for women- regardless of race, religion, upbringing, outer beauty is often unfortunately the focus of our self-worth, and if they do not fit what society has established as “beautiful”, their self-confidence plummets. My goal is to teach young girls to embrace their “flaws”, and love themselves; that what another person views as imperfections, are what makes each of us unique and truly beautiful.  Our bodies are a piece of one-of-a-kind art, and once we accept our differences we shine!

I am enrolled in cosmetology school, and will be starting this summer. With my license I envision myself giving back to my community and helping girls and their mothers love themselves. Whether it is helping teenagers embrace their differences, or giving a mother new found confidence with a new haircut before a job interview, my goal is to help women of all ethnicities, shapes, sizes, and styles feel fabulous!
