How social media changed my life: Social media has changed my life by allowing me to have fun at work. I am able to throw in fun clients in everyday because of social media. It has allowed me to have a portfolio whenever I need it. Most importantly is all the education I get from social media. I've learned so much from other artists. I love social media. 

The first time I was featured on MODERN SALON was…. June, 2017. I am so thankful for all and any support. To be featured on Modern salon was a huge goal of mine.
