So, where does my story begin? As a little girl in a small Eastern Kentucky town in Appalachia, I always have had big dreams. Since I can remember, fashion has been a massive part of my life; I would sew my barbie clothes with my aunt on the weekend. Then, I would be nonstop drawing outfits and dresses throughout the week because I wanted to be a fashion designer. But, growing up changed me, and I felt like I needed to have a job in the medical field to be successful. Completely forgetting about my passion, I continued to strive for this until COVID-19 hit. During quarantine, my love for social media and fashion instantly returned, and I began to express myself through my outfits.
As I became more involved in politics and saw how the world was playing out, I began to speak out about women's rights and how important it is to take care of your mental health. So at 16 years old, I decided to create my website from nothing and use my money saved from working at Subway 5-6 days a week. From there on, I have never experienced happiness like creating a business that supports women's empowerment, mental health positivity, and women in business. Becoming a great business owner has been my motivation throughout my two years in this business world. I want to prove that my passion is more than meets the eye. I have overcome the social anxiety of sharing my business and people saying it won't work to now have over 12.6k new friends on social media platforms. Every time I see that someone loves our items, I do a little happy dance in my head because I was the person that believed in myself. Now I believe in myself enough to constantly quit my 5-6 days week job to pursue my dreams.
Even though being a 18 year old college student, I would not change the struggle and hard times it has taken me to get where I am now. Growing my business and the whole world do me. After pursuing my major in Small Business Entrepreneurship and Management and minoring in Marketing at Morehead State University this fall, and I have now opened a store front in my college town. Our main goal for the store is to have an environment that inspires women to be true to themselves and feel empowered no matter their shape, size, ethnicity, or age. I would've never thought I would've come this far, but I will strive and push until I have a woman-owned business that has impacted and inspired others.
