how I got started in the Hair Industry
-I've always wanted to do hair since as far back as I can remember. While everyone I knew wanted to be doctors and lawyers, I wanted to own my own salon. I went to college, received a degree in Business and I just was over the entire ‘get your degree get a high paying job’ It wasn't until a day after visiting my Great Grandmother and her asking me did I still want to own a chain of salons that I decided to pursue Cosmetology and it was the best decision I have ever made.

How did I meet Pilar
-I actually have known Pilar for YEARS! We went to middle school together and was in the same classroom together always buggin out. Facebook kept us connected THANK GOD because if it had not been for that, I probably wouldn't even been in this spread. :)
The purpose of my talent
-the main purpose of my talent is that I get to be me. I get to wear what I want and rock my hair how I want. I get to express my creativity, I get to be my own boss, im in control of my success and no one can take that from me. And if I was to fail, I get to take the responsibility because it would be no ones fault but my own. And with knowing that right there, let's me know that this was for me.
The message I try to influence with my work
-the message I try to influence with my work is you have to start somewhere to get to where you want to go. Which is why I've been posting every little thing I learned in school on my social media. I ask for my followers to criticize my work because that will only make me better.
What celebrities have I worked with.
-so far, I have worked side by side with Pilar and Madison. I have worked with VH1’s MaMa Jones. And I recently working with TheHusel.
Working with the Husel
-working with The Husel was just like working with people I work with on a daily bases. And k say that because, although he is a celebrity, he is very social. He didn't make us feel intimidated by the fact that he is a celebrity; he was very down to earth. And I believe that's the best part about working with celebrities is finding out their true personality behind all the cameras and things.
What makes me a fashion gxd
-I think its my excitement I have for this. When I’m watching reality tv shows or just fashion shows and things in that nature, I no longer watch it for the entertainment. Im watching it for the hairstyles or the makeup trying to see what I can do to up my game so that the next time I'm watching these shows, I’m looking at my own work.
