Growing up, I had to teach myself how to love myself. No one taught me that I didn't need validation to be intelligent, intellectual or beautiful. No one taught me that I could bombastically love myself without the approval of others. Now at the ripe age of 21, I want to be the voice for other young girls and young women who have yet to find theirs. My desire is to create a headwear line that proudly displays positive affirmations that will never allow the young lady that chooses to wear it, to forget her worth. My desire is also to not just uplift but create an unrelenting awareness in the heart and mind of any special young woman that chooses to proudly love herself in a society that constantly tells her not to.
