How was your childhood?

To be honest my Childhood was a little tough. I was never the cool, pretty, popular girl in school. I was actually usually the one getting picked on, bullied and treated differently from the others.

What insecurities did you face growing up and what advice would you give to others dealing with those same insecurities?

I've always had many insecurities about myself but I think the biggest insecurity I had was my acne problem. I always had acne and oily skin problems growing up. I did everything I could think of to help my skin. I tried every facial, vitamin and medication. I changed my diet routines and made several appointments with dermatologists. After a while, I finally came to a resolution and I no longer had the issue. It was gone for good.

My advice to others would be, to be comfortable in your own skin and to love yourself and love that you are different from others and love that you are special in your own way. But, if there is something you don't like about yourself or an insecurity you have about yourself then work hard and do everything you can to change it for the better, if that's what will make you happy.

I have always had a strong passion for makeup. As I got older, my passion for makeup became stronger. I've always had a love and passion for makeup because it made me feel good about myself, it made me feel pretty and more beautiful.

What are your ultimate goals?

I plan to take the level of my makeup art to a more successful level and for my work to be noticed by others of what I am able to do.

My ultimate goals are to be able to learn the hardest art in makeup and to accomplish that goal and to know that I have the talent to create that.
