1. What is something not too many people know about you?
Something not to many people know about me is I have an associates degree in business administration and am working towards my associates in business entrepreneurship. This accomplishment does not measure any of my goals of the future but only shows the start. Attending college was not a option considering the government helps fund your tuition when attending a local community college. Something I think all should look into if they are seeking a higher education after high school. After I complete a paid internship I will grab the entrepreneurship degree and be on my way to a future in the field.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
One of my biggest passions has to be fashion. I love the way you can express yourself and be different. Upon my growing passion for fashion I quickly understood that there is no place like the past. The older clothing being richer in quality, louder in looks, and the nostalgic feeling it brings to your closet/life. I started to collect in 2013 and began to sell in 2017. Which sparks another passion of mine.. Photography. Ever since the phones started to have a quality camera I enjoyed taking pictures of things I seen that others might not be able too. It quickly geared my love to capturing moments. Also all the amazing creatives you meet just being in the field of photography helps my passion for photos. It keeps photography alive knowing there are individuals that love it so much they make it their profession.
3. What are your goals for the future?
Some goals of mine include working with other creatives in this world, modeling for photographers, photographing for major corporations and styling for artists. A main goal of mine is to create a fashion line. A line where I can express my gratitude for clothing. Another goal of mine is to be in a position to help others in many ways. From food, shelter, clothing, and what ever other ways present itself during the duration of my career. I plan to make that a main factor of any of my business opportunities.. helping others.
4. What is your definition of success?
My definition of success is happiness. I understand that when I create something that I am truly happy about, it usually accounts for a success. I don’t think making money, being comfortable, or having the wants of this world should represent success. Your success is your own happiness and should always be that way.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
Well I wish I could give all the details about the newest project I have taken on but staying in sight of my Instagram can keep you updated. A little information about the event in the works includes 4 different art forms. Art, fashion, photography, and music. Upon putting myself out there as an artist I have met many individuals that inspire me as well as others in the area. Being able to bring them all together and display their work will be a huge project for me as an entrepreneur. More projects include working with creatives to start a portfolio for myself, being involved in a movement to uplift the city I was born and raised in, and starting a clothing drive to give back to the unfortunate human beings of this world.
