Ivy Beauty Boutique
Since the age of 6 I have loved everything about fashion and hair and played fashion shows with my dolls, I’ve dreamed of opening my own boutique. Because of my passion for fashion at the age of 16 I begin working in retail at the Body Shop. I then went off to college and while pursuing my Bachelor’s degree I begin to work at one of the largest retailers in the U.S. called Express and became a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. For the past four years, I have worked and fulfilled my duties as a single mom to my 4 year old son Bryan. In the last year, I have been working two jobs to save and make my dream become a reality of becoming an entrepreneur. When not fulfilling my duties as a single mother to my wonderful little boy, I’ve been working a full-time job and part-time job while operating Ivy Beauty Boutique, from my home with the support of my very supportive sorority sister/friends and family who I have named my Vines. For years, I’ve been waiting for my dream to become a reality. I’m asking for your help in making my dream come true. I’m raising money to open an online boutique so that I can grow my business and customers can have a wonderful online shopping experience.
Please help me make my dream a reality in becoming a Momprenuer – I look forward to you becoming a part of my Vine and allowing me to give my customers style while building stability for me and my son. Thank you so much for your support!
