ABOUT ME

I am a twenty-two year old Garifuna woman born in La Ceiba, Honduras currently residing in Houston, Texas. I moved to Houston with my incredibly strong willed mother, who was passionate in making sure I had better opportunities than she was given in La Ceiba. Moving to the states did not come without challenges. I did not speak English, so when I enrolled in school I was overwhelmed. Fast forward 8 years and I am now a wife to an amazing man. I am truly blessed to share my life with him. I am pursuing my career as a business photographer full-time at the Art Institute of Houston. I have built a social media platform by making Youtube videos and connecting with people via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. I just have a passion for inspiring others through art, whether that be through photographs or beauty related content. I also work Full-time for Harris County. Who needs sleep?! But seriously, I make sure I take full advantage of why my mom brought me here in the first place. She has made me a strong, Garifuna woman that holds a tremendous pride for my country.  I am nowhere close to where I want to be, but this quote , " I will win. Not immediately, BUT definetely," keeps me reminded that it is soon to come. Thank you for allowing me to share a piece of myself with you.
