Tell us about your business/goals?
Twisted Cheri is my co. I illustrate. I love art and I love thinking out of the box. I like taking images and making them come alive. I place images of women…mostly natural hair women, on t shirts, posters, and cups. I have other ideas for women that will help maintain hair. I also design logos and custom images for people.
What were some of the obstacles you faced and how you overcame them?
I was fighting with myself. I allowed myself to believe no one would like my art.Had to overcome the fear of people staring at me while i worked.
What does Power of Her mean to you?
It means the unlimited boundaries that will ultimately break because of the mental and physical power I embody.
What would you say to the ladies who are trying to balance life while maintain their business and goals?
Write it down and check it off. I am unorganized and this helps tremendously.Write down the smallest things. Things you have already done..i.e. woke up, prayed, stretched..etc. We mentally need a feeling of accomplishment.
