Back in 2016, I decided to start the brand " Ambitious Motivated Women" (AMW). This brand was to show everyone that women around the world can inspire anyone. To motivate them that their dreams and desires can happen if they just stay consistent. The brand it self gives back to our community, get the youth involved because we are their biggest inspirations. Last year I decided to step into the clothing scene of fashion. so I dropped a few collections called " DAMN GINA" this is #1 TOP seller in ALL 50 states.. While doing clothes I added " S/0 To GOD, I'm broke luv, Millionaire Mindset, Grind Mode, and a few others. They are all versatile for men and women. A few celebrities have reached out and supported ( Lil Mo, Paris , Iman Shumpert, Teyana Shumpert, Lance stephson, waka flocka), and many more just to add a few. since the youth looks up to us we decided to start a kid foundation called #TeamFlake which they can express themselves through dancing, photos, creativity. The snow foundation is another one we go out to the community to help the homeless with all their needs far as feeding, clothing, speaking. The brand has impacted so many people on my social media accounts. I just want the best for my Team , we will work until our families are able to relax without days of worries. Through God we will achieve more than we have asked for.
