I’ve spoken openly about how and why I moved out of my parents’ house when I was 17. I never fit into the town I grew up in and I always felt like I wanted to explore more than what I was seeing in front of me. I was eager to learn and explore from a very young age and when you grow up in a small town (as much as I adore the town I grew up in) you have factors that hold you back. I was passionate about not letting anything hold me back from being successful. When I first moved out, I spent 30 days in a row at Sally Hansen Beauty Supply in Brooklyn, NY taking pictures of brands to email. I got one reply out of 100s of emails and made $1,500 from an Instagram takeover for a hair brand. That paid my rent for the first month & I had 700 Instagram followers.
