🌼 Do you know what HUMILITY is? It is freedom from pride or arrogance; lowliness of mind. It is not weakness but a state of mind.... 20 years ago I decided to become a makeup artist. I enrolled at a school owned by a phenomenal, selfless, and inspirational woman named @donnamee_beautyprodigy Her Facebook group is MASTERING MAKEUP with DONNA MEE
Since the day I walked into that classroom she has remained my instructor, my mentor and my friend.
I WOULD NOT BE WHERE I AM AT IN MY CAREER WITHOUT DONNA MEE.
I was a preschool teacher before Donna, I owe my entire makeup knowledge base to her. She has gone above and beyond and has ALWAYS been there for me. When I needed advice on how to get my first makeup job she taught me how to interview. When I decided to leave retail she taught me how to do a test shoot. When I got my first contact sheet, she taught me how to use a loupe. (Half of you don’t even know what that is). When I met with my first agency, she taught me how to put my portfolio together. When my grandmother died and my family turned against each other, she gave me a bed to sleep in indefinitely. When I decided to go to Europe for fashion week, she helped me type an email to @patmcgrathreal agent that got me on her team. As much as she’s been there for me, I’ve been there for her. I’ve seen her fall in and out of love, sacrifice her health, put on hold her life’s expectations, watched her experience loss emotionally, physically and financially in ways most wouldn’t wish on their enemies and all the while she survives, keeps teaching and continues to smile and stay positive. Giving away education, material possessions and her precious time for free. She is a human being with feelings like each and every one of us.
So let me say this, for anyone to come after her reputation to attempt to discredit, slander, bad mouth or try to drag her is so utterly disgusting to me that I felt impelled to come to her defense. See comments👇🏾for more:
