The #10yearchallenge made me do a little one two step-shout
If you attended high school with me and wondered why I wasn't at our 12th grade graduation its because I repeated the grade due to infractions. We wore uniforms but I (sorry mom).. . used innovation to adjust the uniforms and express myself. I transferred to Destrehan High School for my 14th year of school.. not only did I learn so much but I was asked to be on the homecoming court! Fastforward a few months later . . . .
I found a fashion internship with BCBG online
. It seemed to good to be true but I applied and was accepted!! . The first semester I worked independently with weekly support from Corporate LA via conference calls.. My responsibility was to expand the brand to the midsouth through events on college campuses.. BUT they allowed me to take the opportunity and run with it. I partnered with Susan G Komen, promoters, news stations, and college campuses... BCBGeneration was everywhere lol. Later found an amazing partner in @aliboone we won the title of bcbgenerations best marketing ambassador and a trip to New York Fashion Week. . . . . My first time as an adult flying anywhere lol.. Our plane was delayed due to weather but we were bumped to first class... In first class is where I met my first mentor lol... A wealthy business CPA who purchased and revitalized businesses. Amazing trip with so many great stories.. Instead of flying to Memphis... I flew home to Nola this was right before the saints played in the superbowl so the city was on fire.. BCBG hired a limo to transport me(This was before Uber) from the airport to "under the bridge" (If your from Nola you know what this means lol) The police allowed the driver to drive through every barricade until I reached my family. I felt like I was in a movie.lol.. Fast forward 2019.. Creating strategies, solutions and visuals for Macys!!!! . So grateful to God for ordered steps!! #Entrepreneur#Fashion#Mercedes#Student#Highschool School #Class#God # Faith #Homecoming#Queen#NewYork#Travel#Fly#Shopping#Retail#Innovation#Technology#Growth#Grateful#Joy#Purpose#Success#millionaire
2009: High school senior in Arizona that had never gone away from home. Although I was very academically driven I was super shy, filled with self doubt, and had little sense of self identity. .
2019: Three degrees and a whole bunch of life experience later, I am a general dentist honing my skills in an additional year of training at my residency program. I command my future, embrace the unknown, and know exactly what my goals are both in my career and personal life. I also learned the power of a good spray tan and snatched contour, because when you look good you feel good. 😂💁🏻♀️
