I grew up in a small town in southwest Louisiana. At the time, I was only exposed to just a few and the same professions: doctors, dentists, teachers, police officers, engineers, business owners, etc. There were only a couple of pediatric dentists in the area, but my parents made sure my brother and I went on a regular basis. Most kids are scared of going to the dental office and some adults still have fear of seeing their dentist. For me, it had always been the exact opposite. I would enjoy my visits to the dentist.

I moved here from Puerto Rico at the age of 15. From a very young age I was interested in fashion. Growing up on the island I was made to believe that becoming a fashion designer would not be possible. I needed to go after a “real” career. So when I started college at the University of North Texas, I studied psychology. After my first year at UNT I became familiar with their fashion program, and I applied just to see what would happen. I got in and that changed the course of my life. I double majored in both psychology and fashion, but I knew that fashion was going to be my career. Read more>>
I started singing at the age of only 2 years old, and of course, I started out in church. I knew at an early age that I loved music and that I wanted to sing, I grew up in my family church and had sang in the sunshine band, youth choir, adult choir, and the combined choir all by the time I was 8 years old, I loved it. At around 11 years old, my mom formed a gospel group, which consisted of my mom, myself, and my sisters. She named us, “The Blessed Assurance Moore Singers”. We sang until I turned 22 years old. I would lead the songs; my mother and sisters would sing back up. That’s when I really knew I wanted to sing and touch people. My dad which is an awesome singer and guitarist had a band named, “The Moore Brother Live Band”. They sang R&B music. Both of my parents are talented musician and singers. I remember being 12 singing with my dad and uncles at the family reunions we would have. I would be so shy, but my Dad didn’t care…he wanted me to sing…and I would show out too! Read more>>
As a kid, I always liked art and drawing. And I was always fascinated when I would see people with tattoos. And I decided to start tattooing at a young age at 15 to do art on people’s bodies. I’m currently 20 and I love what I do. Has a Hispanic tattoo artist and very heavily Hispanic household, it was challenging but here we are now. Read more>>
