Tati’s story

I was born in the Dominican Republic, where I lived until I was 16. I remember I used to play with wigs and dolls, doing curls and cutting hair. I always felt attracted by the beauty industry.

I came to Puerto Rico at age 16 with my mom and mytwo sisters. As she could not pay for my studies, I worked in a family home to help pay for my hairdressing studies. I graduated as a hairstylist at age 17, and my dream was to come to New York, which I was able to do when I was 20. 
I got my New York license, completed my studies in cosmetology and bought my first business at age 22. I had it for a year and a half, until I went to Spain to study for a year. When I returned I decided to open another business and continue studying. 
Talking to women everyday at my salon who were losing their hair awakened in me a compassion for them, and so I decided to take classes with the goal of professionally developing the design and manufacture of tailored, handmade wigs. 
That’s how I have extended my beauty services for the purpose of helping women who are losing their hair. I also became a Lecturer and Image Consultant, always striving to provide a complete service to my clients.


SPANISH

Nací en República Dominicana y hasta los 16 años viví en mi país. Me acuerdo que jugaba con pelucas y muñecas, haciendo rulos, cortando el cabello, siempre me sentí atraída por la rama de la belleza. Llegué a Puerto Rico a los 16 años con mi mamá y mis dos hermanas. Como ella no podía pagarme los estudios, me fui a trabajar a una casa de familia para ayudarme a pagar la escuela de peluquería. Me gradué de peluquera a los 17 años, y mi ilusión era venirme a New York, lo que pude hacer a los 20 ańos.

Saqué mi licencia de New York, completé mis estudios de cosmetología y compré mi primer negocio a los 22 años. Lo tuve por un año y medio, hasta que fui a estudiar a España por un año. Cuando regresé decidí abrir otro negocio y seguir estudiando. El trato diario en mi salón con mujeres que están perdiendo el cabello despertó en mí una verdadera compasión por ellas, y por eso decidí tomar clases para desarrollar en forma profesional diseño y elaboración de pelucas hechas a mano y a la medida.

AsÍ es como he ampliado mis servicios de belleza con el propósito de ayudar a las mujeres que pierden su cabello. También me convertí en Conferencista y Asesora de Imagen, siempre buscando darles un servicio completo a mis clientes. 

This loan is special because:

This loan is meant to empower women with wigs.
