What inspires you? 
People, do everyday working people.

What products do you use in your hair?

 How did you get your start with hair and selling clothes?
Ive been doing hair since i was 14.My mom didn't have time to do my hair so i tried doing it myself. I started to get good and thats when i started on other people. Im not a designer, i just sell vintage clothes.i started my vintage shop because i had tons of clothes and tons of bags and just stuff. So i decided to open my online store. Make money and make people happy.

 What is your favorite thing about creating? 

I love the reaction on my clients face.When im creating i feel powerful and motivated because i created with my hands. I think that's dope >

Where do you hope your dreams will take you?

 As far as the heavens reach. I wanna go further than my parents went. I want to be the one in my family to reach the highest. I want to be able to have a foundation for my children so they can be better than me and their children better than them.
