In case you didn’t know, March is Women’s History Month and Friday, March 8 is Women’s Day. If nothing else, use this time to reflect on the women in your life and how much of an impression they’ve made on you!
When I was a little girl, I remember walking to school and women in the neighborhood giving me a word of wisdom or half a sandwich for lunch. I grew up in a community where women supported each other and it really made an impression on me. To this day, it’s something that I keep in mind in my work.
I’ve always been about helping and uplifting women. When I started out in fashion, I loved dressing women for success. Then, when I moved on to fitness, I really enjoyed helping women create the body they really wanted so they could be both happy and healthy.
In general, I think women are getting better at helping and nurturing each other. In fact, I really have to thank Ashunta Sheriff, a celebrity makeup artist who inspired me to move from fitness to bodybuilding by pushing myself to be better. I was shocked that a woman as successful as she is would take the time to give me advice.
