Getting to speak about my workaa in front of an audience is something I am not used to. Since I was young I was always shy but as I grew older, with the help of mentors and amazing friends, I have been able to come out of my shy nature and be comfortable in my own skin. However, public speaking is something I still have yet to master.
I was asked by my mentor Monique Austin, who works at Curry College, to speak on my #nomakeup series to her students as well as other students that may be interested. My nerves were worked up but it felt great to share my story on how it started and where I intend to take it. My friend, whom I consider a sister, Nataly Bedoya was their as well to share her thoughts on makeup and the overall process on being involved.
Hopefully I can do this more often at either different speaker series's or colleges. What a journey this has been thus far with this series.
