  19. I really love your story. I’m 35 yrs old and just stepped out on faith as you did. I wish you luck and the best at whatever you do !!!

  20. Boomerang Ray!!! I know i’m late lol you know why. You already know im proud of you and everything you have going on! You are definitely someone who went from “you make it sound so easy” to “POW Look at what I can Do”. To many people doubt themselves and stay at stage one for every excuse they can think of and I know personally that you didn’t let those excuses become the reason for you not progressing! Continue on and continue holding the torch leading the way and giving us that example that many of us need that anything can be done if you put your mind to it!

  21. I know I’m SUPER late, but…
    WOOOOOW!!! This has inspired me more and more to do what I have been dreaming about. I’ve shared it with you already and I know with your help and expertise, it will happen. There are a lot of talented people on Detroit that get over looked… And I’m glad to see the people that I’ve went to school with (CT!!), do extrodinary (did I spell that right) things. God has a lot in store for you, and I know that this is only the beginning. Thank you so much for this story… I’m another ghetto black girl from Detroit, but my past only helps me determine the kind of future I want to have.

  30. You are one inspiring person!!! I love it. Thanks for the ,otivation and keep up the good work!!!

  31. Real talk…this moved me…thank you.

  32. Wow reading your story was very inspiring,not just about fashion but just anout going after your dreams. If you want to do something you have to make preparation and then move. One thing you mentioned was that you were unhappy where you were and so you made some things happen. You stepped on faith trusting God, mot knowing where you going but knew what you wanted to do. GOD BLESS YOU I definately support your visoon and your dream. I pray God grow your business and make you beyond prosperous.

  33. Thank you for posting this!!! Such a blessing!!

  34. omg! why am I crying right now. so inspiring. I’m trying to do the same exact thing. There are a lot of times where I’m so lost with life and my purpose on this earth. I know what I want to do but it just seems do difficult and unrealistic to get there. Every day i try to accomplish something that will get me closer and closer to my dream but it just fell like it’ll never happen or its taking forever to get their. I went to college for fashion, always had a passion for it. I just pray that I can get myself to a level where i’m happy with life. I don’t have to be rich or famous…just like you said I just want to be successful.

  35. sorry for the grammatical errors. i was typing really fast lol

  36. This post was inspiring to me and I can truely relate to it. I am at that stage now where I hate what I am doing and I am ready to start Living!!!!!!! not just existing. I have a few things that I want to do in terms as starting my own businesses. How did you seek manfactueres to make your products? How did you raise capital to start your business? These are two areas that I am currently struggling with at this time.
