Who or what inspires you and how does it influence your work?
My biggest inspiration would be my mom. She has always encouraged me to be creative, to challenge myself and work hard for what I want; but most importantly she has always believed in me and my abilities to do something greater.
I use this motivation and encouragement to explore the world’s art & culture, nature, cities and countries, and to find beauty in everything that surrounds us. By doing so, it pushes me out of my comfort zone, constantly learning new ways to do things and incorporating it into my works & lifestyle. I truly enjoy challenging myself to be better in my trade-- whether it is art, photography, cooking... anything!
Why did you decide to do the work you are doing now?
I’ve been working in many different fields in my short life and nothing has inspired me enough to want to do it forever. I have always loved arts, in any form really, and it just clicked one day. I want something I can pour my heart and soul into, and what better way than to create it.
How and when did you know you wanted to become a business owner?
I’ve always known I wanted to become a business owner. I didn’t know how, or when it would happen, but I always knew-- especially after working at mom-and-pop shops and corporate companies, it just seemed attainable. I know it won’t be easy, but I’m excited for all the possibilities it’ll bring.
What is your secret talent no one knows about?
I am a licensed Personal Trainer. While I haven’t had a chance to offer any training or courses professionally, I have provided tips to friends and family. I am also a yoga enthusiast and love to run daily.
What’s the best advice you’ve heard?
A quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”
