So, with out further ado.. the interview!
What sparked your interest in being in the fashion industry?
I’ve always known that I wanted to work in a clothing store. I started my first job at forever 21 when I was 18. After my first job I loved it.
What has been your inspiration?
Everything I do is for God. He is who I look up to and I am where I am today with my business because of him. This is why my business has Grace in the name; it is by his Grace this company came to pass. He has guided me every step of the way. “For I know the plans I have for you…” Jeremiah 29:11. That’s how it all began for me.
What’s a Fun Fact About you?
I like to go to worship concerts, and jump like a little girl. (Lol. I love it!)
What advice can you give someone who would like to join the fashion industry?
Follow your heart and figure out what your true passion is and give it your 110%. Always be a leader! Always stand out no matter what you do. Be the person that sets a trend. Don’t be the one that follows it. Always go against the wind, that’s how great designers are born!
Thank you Yuri for sharing your advice and inspiration.
