Meet Aysia Davis of Ambitiouss Brand in third ward

Today we’d like to introduce you to Aysia Davis.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Aysia. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there
I am a city girl, born and raised in California. I moved to Houston, believing I would complete the fashion program at TSU since I’ve always been into fashion and beauty. There was always a connection for me with fashion and beauty that was not always easy to convey as I struggled with self-image and found myself comparing myself to others for years. Then one day, I realized that it started on the inside and that once I learned actually to accept myself completely and love everything about me, then I had a solid foundation that I could build on. Fashion became an awesome tool of expression, and I learned that I could literally manipulate my feelings by using fashion as a tool. Makeup was the same way a new shade of lipstick can go a long way when you know how to use your tools. This is where my desire to help others was born. I knew that if I could walk someone through simple steps that would allow them to feel better about themselves inside and out, then I’d found my passion.

Once I overcame all of my insecurities, there was one more major battle and that was fear, I had to become my own cheerleader and really force myself to put myself out there and offer my services. I spent my first two years of college working part-time in retail, which gave me even more insight, and I fully knew that I wanted to really push to be in the business. I became my first client, which lead to many compliments, before long, I was styling family and friends, and my business was birthed. I’ve since expanded and became the personal go-to stylist, which includes not only attire but hair and makeup. The journey has been hard and long, but I can truly say the journey thus far has been rewarding, and I’m looking forward to what the future holds.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Since I’ve started this path of being an entrepreneur, it has definitely not been a smooth road. There are plenty of days and times where I actually ask myself why am I doing this still. It’s very up and down, especially when you are not a well-known person or have some clout or big-name status behind what you do. Resources and finances are always having to make sure you make money to be able to spend money to pour back into your business. Connecting with genuine people who are willing to help you build your business brand and teach you ways to grow your business without having their own secret motive behind why there doing it. Another challenge that I seem to come across a lot is always supporting others and their businesses and that same energy, respect, and support not being reciprocated back. I feel like we are in a time period and generation where everyone wants to be an entrepreneur, but no one is interested in teaching others the proper steps it takes to get them there. I want people to know that sometimes it may get challenging, and things may not seem like it’s moving but to keep going and pushing beyond what you can’t see. The key to every challenge is not to allow it to defeat you but overcome it to help someone else but always remember to stay true to yourself.

Please tell us about Ambitiouss Brand.
I build people first, then develop their brand. How we feel about ourselves is steeped in our perception of what we feel is important. With so much emphasis on appearances, there is an epidemic of people seeking to be and look like others and never taking the time to know and appreciate the uniqueness of oneself. I realized on my journey that every major brand started somewhere and became popular due to others bring attention to it as confidence is contagious in all arenas, and the more we are into accepting and loving ourselves, confidence is built, which transcends into every area of our lives. What makes a brand unique is just that it is unique by building people feel and look better, comparing themselves to no one. Creativity and confidence explode.

What sets me apart from everyone else is that I focus on building personal connections with each person that I work with. I want to ensure that each person walks away, being inspired, and empowered to be the best version of themselves. I am a firm believer that to see a change, you must first be it, and I aim to do just that. Every person I come in contact with, I want them to remember how I made them feel leaving an impact in their life.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
One of my favorite childhood memories was when my mom put together a sleepover birthday party for my friends and me. We watched movies and had a little in house spa day where we took turns giving mini facials, manicures, and pedicures. Then, we had a small tea party with the tea sets and played the dress-up game creating a mini fashion show. This is my favorite memory because reflecting on my childhood, my love for fashion and beauty was slowly developing and now has carried over into my adult life.
