Got to work early. Thought about how grateful I am for my life the whole way here. Grateful for @aveda @avedainstituteorlando and @inspireaveda for education and opportunities, including introducing me to the in the artistic and professional influences of @carriebellus @nikayhigginshair @raeblackextensions @lgonzalezhaircolor @vidasalon @jvincentmakeup @pageantrymagazine and many more! Including all my educators @jenndville @jamieelizabeth @xceeo @xknav3x @narcisohair @your_mane_stylist @drew2uhair (I know I'm missing some) for the training and enlightening conversations and learning opportunities! And definitely my current employer @berenicesdenver for giving me the opportunity to step into my new career so effortlessly while being able to bring my customer service expertise to our clients, guests, and stylists. And so grateful for my sister @michellebriannehmua for being who she is, being my role model and inspiring me to finally take this step into a new artistic career, building my artistic self-expression... and so grateful for all the stylists I've known before I embarked on this journey, for inspiring me to think about this as a viable career path. And every stylist I've met since who have become daily inspiration! Also to Discount Tire for fixing my flat yesterday in less than 20 minutes even tho I got to school too late yesterday to clock any hours but I still made it to the master series on hair painting! And my mom for recharging my AC this morning because the drive was nice and cool, almost cold! Life is good yo. So very good! Happy Wednesday!
