What an exciting week it's been so far! Just days ago, a podcast interview I participated in with Remodel Your Life went LIVE! Camile Finan is an amazing woman working to catapult the careers of women in business. Her podcast reaches women and men alike to encourage them to shoot for the stars. Her interviews cover a range of topics from women in construction to diversity and overcoming struggles. When I was requested to be interviewed, I jumped at the chance. This is an intimate conversation about my journey as an African American interior designer.
I discuss my struggles as a teenage mom and non-traditional college student. I talk about not knowing my career path to finding my passion in design, and having to start from scratch in design school.
The struggles are not without overcoming hurdles. I went from college student to award winning designer and working on incredible projects from residential to commercial and set design. Even winning a logo design competition for Academy-Award winning actress Halle Berry! Tune in to see how I was able to get that opportunity and meet her in person!
