  • What do you stand for?

    I stand for self motivation . Working to your best abilities and striving to be the best at all that I do. What keeps me going so hard is the fact that the people around don\’t believe in you nor your talent ! But you use that to push and make it out on top.

  • What’s your favorite beauty hack?

    My favorite beauty hack would have to be my lash application. First I always use mascara on my natural lashes then after applying glue to the falsies I lay the lashes on top of my natural lashes and begin squeezing it on from the middle then working my way to the end then lastly the beginning making sure it is secured properly. Then I use mascara once more pushing and combining them together to look flawless and natural.

  • Where do you want to be in 5 years? 10 years?

    In five years I see myself as a well known and established business owner. I want to own a three floor salon and spa, a kids salon and spa, and a banquet hall.

  • How do you maintain work/life balance?

    I work two jobs but on my days off or when I get home I still find time to learn, do research, build clientele and practice on my craft.

  • Walk us through the step by step process that allowed you to be where you are today?

    At 12 years old I started off modeling and doing pageants. I always had a passion for fashion and makeup artistry. As the years progressed I became a self taught freelance makeup artist doing mostly prom makeup , weddings , dance recitals, and fashion shows. I graduated Berkeley College in 2014 with my Fashion Marketing and Management Degree, as soon as I finished I enrolled at Empire Beauty School full time obtaining my Cosmetology License and setting a record for having the highest test score (98) for the written exam in 5 years. From then on I began perfecting my craft by being the one stop shop by doing makeup,hair,styling, and also modeling when needed. Making a name for myself in the tri-state area. Traveling, branding , socializing, and competing and numoerous fashion shows and pageants I was able to become well rounded and knowledgeable in this industry.

  • If a youngin came up to you asking for advice and you only had a few minutes, what would you say?

    I would take their number and call them. I love giving advice and being a mentor. I may not know it all or have all the answers but I have been through a lot and grown a lot over the years and I feel as though I can help anyone shine bright and find their true self. ” experts once was beginners”
