Alicia Walker

I made the decision to take a Lash Extension Training Course. I registered for the training not knowing how things would go afterwards, and I was so nervous. After the 8hr course, I felt that this was something that I could do all the time. Although I had never applied for lash extensions before, I felt like It was a natural talent. I went back to my full-time job (a paralegal at a criminal law firm) and told my coworker about it. She then took the training as well. Read more>>

I always knew I wanted to do something creative in the arts, but I do believe I was scared of what others would say and didn’t like the feeling of being judged. But after much deliberation to myself, I gained the strength to embark on a big dream of mines which was modeling. I began messaging a lot of local photographers here in Houston and worked on building a portfolio I thought was great enough to get agencies to notice me. Read more>>

It’s only recently that someone would call me “successful.” In the 24 months, I have gone from working minimum page to a high corporate salary to now, calling the shots running a profitable online business. This journey I would say has taken a lifetime. Many moments of self-doubt, of crying in the bathroom, of being ready to give up. Read more>>

Robb McKenzie

I became a potter. Getting my hands ‘dirty’ with clay is somehow very cathartic. I think of nothing else aside from the lump of clay in front of me. It also gives me the sense of power; not only can I make sculptural forms, but if I need a coffee cup, I can make one; if I need a cereal bowl, I can make that too! Read more>>

Kayla Martinez

As everyone who is drawn to the beauty of expressing themselves with images, I’ve been drawing ever since I was a kid. It’s always been that one thing I will forever be passionate about. Growing up life tends to drain the kid inside you. Slowly my dream of wanting to be an artist was far in the distance with my personal legend. Around 2015 I was battling trying to keep myself sane, so I thought why not pick up a paintbrush. Read more>>

The garments I design originate from my head and try to see what’s not trendy currently and design something to become trendy later on.
