UM: How did you get your start in the hair and beauty industry?
I started out doing my hair at an early age, because it was very interesting to me, and I enjoyed doing it, so I sought out to practice on others. I have a younger sister and a cousin that didn't mind letting me play in their hair. I realized I actually had talent, so I went to cosmetology school.
UM: What do you find most rewarding about your profession?
The thing that I find the most rewarding about my profession is that I get to see people come in one way and walk out with the fiercest attitude. Seeing women looking beautiful and openly knowing that they look good, because I did their hair, is wonderful. I think it is empowering. I know many other stylists can relate. Seeing everyone accomplish their goals in this industry is something that is rewarding as well.
UM: Tell us a little bit about your brand the Mo Unlimited nail care line, and what does it include?
Mo Unlimited, is a beauty brand. Our product line includes a natural powder, a clear powder, a liquid, and cuticle oil. It's an accomplishment for me to have this line and I'm very proud of it and blessed to have it.
UM: What do you feel sets your brand apart from others?
It's one thing that sets my brand apart from others, and that's the commitment I have of continuing to keep improving, advancing, and educating myself to do better with my line. I am not the type of person who has the attitude that I am better than everyone. My attitude is more on the side of I can accomplish anything, and I will show that to people. My tag line is “Never limit your beauty”. I never want anyone to limit themselves.
UM: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time outside of the hair and beauty industry?
In my spare time, I love to spend time with my daughter Monecia. She is my best friend and the reason I work so hard to try to be the best. I also mentor young kids encouraging them to never limit themselves. I'm also very active at my church, Kelly Missionary Baptist Church; I'm over the pastor’s aid committee and the youth. I also sing in the choir, and help out in the kitchen. I also love spending time with my friends and family.
