She always had an interest in the way that transforming your physical appearance can transform your mentality. It wasn't long until she started cutting her own hair and all the girls’ hair in the neighborhood. As she grew older and was looking for her next step, she applied to the fashion design program at the Institute of Art in Chicago and got in. This did not satisfy her completely and she went on to explore interior design and then finally cosmetology.
