I joined the military after I was searching for something else in my life that I wanted to do that would help me serve more. And after doing some thinking, I said, “This is what I’ve been looking for.”
This is the purpose that I was looking to fulfill my soul. And so I went ahead and I raised my hand and I pledged to the United States of America that I will serve honorably. So I found my passion to wake up every day and change the narrative of what’s beautiful, but my passion came from a necessity. I felt that I had to assimilate or look a certain way so that I can look professional. Or that people can look at me as someone that is going somewhere.
And after I found out what I really wanted to do, I realized that if I become the CEO of my company I will not have to assimilate anymore. I needed some things to accent my new beautiful ringlets I had that were coming in. And I couldn’t find anything in the store for my hair texture. So I started making my own. And, one day I said, you know, I want to make this into a business.
So, Queen of Spades Natural Hair Accessories has vibrant, colorful, just eye-catching designs. I have a lot of hair wraps in different sizes and I have them in different textures because textures of hair come in about eight different ways. I always say, your personal style starts from the top. And for the people that want to make that choice of having natural hair, I am making some wonderful, vibrant options, so that they can say, look, when they walk into a room, “I have arrived. I’m here.”
