Care has a passion for fashion, beauty and all things style. She loves to thrift and finds great joy in affordable designer, no name brand clothing and fly things! Makeup is something she dabbles in but is in no way a professional. Care’s wig collection is extensive and she prides herself on her versatility with hair. She is fascinated with her heritage and loves Black everything. She dresses for herself and hopes to inspire others who can’t afford or have no desire to live in the name brand era. Care’s love for shoes is probably her biggest obsession and she can talk about them all day.

Care is a down to earth intellectual who is truly goofy. She is a lover of love and is currently testing out that God given feeling! She loves talking to people and really wants to work with teens and young adults as they discover and unpack life. She is dedicated to education and the pursuit of it in all respects. She plans to obtain her PhD as well as go on to teach and work in the administrative sector of higher education.
