Beauty awakens the soul to act...-D.A.

"Between you and every goal that you wish to achieve, there is a series of obstacles-- the bigger the goal, the bigger the obstacles. Your decision to be, have, and do something out of the ordinary entails facing difficulties and challenges that are out of the ordinary as well. Sometimes your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay with it:."
~ Brian Tracy

Have you ever felt you were born to do something? For me, it's using my creativity.

A promoter of boundless thinking, I live to make everything majestic and beautiful. I am a self-proclaimed Fashion Maverick, whose canvases include, but are not limited to, fashion design, event production, modeling, event hosting, and cosmetology.

Thanks to an amazingly supportive family and inner circle, I will never stop seeking the things that bring me joy, not matter what difficulties I encounter, including a lack of funding to finish cosmetology school.

In August of 2012, I enrolled at Dudley Beauty College in Chicago,IL as a part time student. To become a licensed stylist it requires 1500 hours, and it generally takes students with my status at least a year and a half to finish. However, I have never been like the average student. A little more than a year later, I am only 177.5 hours away from completing my hours towards getting my license, six months ahead of schedule! If I worked only 5 hours a day, I would reach my goal in a little over a month! *throws confetti*

This is amazing, and truly by the grace of God; but it puts me a difficult place financially. Because I have matriculated so quickly, I need to come up with $3,700 to finish covering my expenses. Dudley does not participate in the Title Four Funding Program that administers financial aid, and I have exhausted all of my other options. My last resort is to turn to you, my family, friends, and supporters.

Any donation you could make, even as small as a $1, would help me tremendously! I know in this day and age, budgets are stretched thin, but investing in me will never be anything to regret. I am completely committed to utilizing my best asset, in the words of Brian Tracy, to the fullest extent of my abilities.
Please feel free to share this campaign with your family, your friends, and on all your social networking websites!

Thank you in advance!
