Earlier this year I started to feel very uninspired and unfulfilled with my current career as a wardrobe stylist. I battled with quitting styling because as much as I loved it and was passionate about it, there was a void. Not only did I feel that my work wasn’t being valued; I was unfulfilled by what I had accomplished. So, I set out on a quest to find realign my purpose and find what I was truly passionate about.
After reading, The Seed: Finding Purpose and Happiness in Life and Work by Jon Gordon, things seem to come into focus again. Reinvigorated, I revisited my senior thesis. There I discussed the social stigmas that women and children face when it comes to self image, employment, poverty, and neglect. Overwhelmed with inspiration, that’s when I experience my Ah Ha moment. I decided to start living a life of purpose and a promise to live my truths.
I began to reflect on the things I was passionate about: visual storytelling (styling), photography, helping others, and an obsession with African American women’s hair. That’s when the idea for Heritage1933™ first came about.
Heritage1933™ is a beauty company that provides human hair extensions for Afro and natural hair textures. At the root of Heritage1933™ is a mission to help women and children. With every product purchased, Heritage1933™ will give hair care products to local shelters in support of women and children impacted by poverty and domestic violence.
Heritage1933™ will be launching later this fall, and I’m super excited for positive changes it can bring to the lives of women and children. I invite you all to join me on my journey as I start Heritage1933™ and in living a purposeful life.
