Erin Titensor

I started an influencer account at the beginning of 2018 that took off because I decided to share my story about depression, anxiety, and suicide. I was diagnosed with depression, anxiety, mild bi-polor disorder in March 2012 – six months after I got married and when I was admitted into a psych ward for suicidal thoughts. Read more>>

I have always been very passionate about everything that has to do with beauty. I went from playing with dolls and giving them an extreme makeover to obtaining my cosmetology license and fulfilling my dreams. The love for hair struck in a very early age, I would love to do my sister’s hair when she would have school activities and help my friends get glam for a special event. Read more>>

AJ Chaka

My first experience with music began when I was four years old. I would watch my cousins imitate their favorite Emcees while making recordings for fun on my mom’s old white Dell computer. However, my first serious interaction with music began in 2012, when I was 14 years old. At that time I had recently moved from Springfield, Ohio to Irving. Read more>>

Steven Madrigal

In 2012, I was living in California. I married an amazing woman who shares the same passion for music as I do. So I decided instead of hearing what other DJs wanted me to hear, I decided I could compile songs we both loved, in hour-long playlists by simply using iTunes. It wasn’t until 2015 when I decided to invest in a $250 DJ controller. Read more>>

Amaelyah Woodley

I’m Amaelyah Woodley, I was born in Houston, Texas September 15, 1995. My story starts at the fact that I’ve been tall my entire life. 5’7 in 4th grade to 6’1 in 6th grade. I even remember getting out of bed and knowing that I was standing taller than usual. I was proud of it. All of my friends that I grew up with knew that I was tall and it never phased them or me. Read more>>

Bryan Pitts

Born in Dallas. Raised in Irving. Went to college at Northlake, which is how I got into acting. I was seeking a class where there were no tests. Acting is where I landed. I performed monologues from interludes from CD’s since I didn’t know any plays. At the end of the semester, one of my classmates, James Gammil, asked me to audition for their upcoming play. Read more>>

Ruby Hernandez

My name is Ruby, the proud owner of La Casa Frida based in San Antonio, Tx. La Casa Frida began back in November 2018 inside a 1968 Vintage airstream trailer at the Shops of Broadway News. La Casa Frida started with a very simple yet powerful idea behind it, to bring an authentic little piece of Mexico to our customers. Growing up in Mexico exposed me to the many vibrant colors, food and traditions that makes Mexico such a unique place. Read more>>

Gloria Singleterry

I began my career as an insurance agent in late 2013 and in 2015, I worked as a contracted benefits counselor and would travel the country for work. I would give presentations in Spanish to large groups of people from other Latin countries & would often get asked what my nationality was. After constantly explaining that I am a Mexican-American, but I had never lived in Mexico, and neither had my parents or grandparents and after getting looks of confusion. Read more>>

Erica Ranjel

I’ve always been into second-hand fashion and thrifting. I feel like I was raised inside the Goodwill, my mom definitely passed that hobby on to me. I admired the vintage shops I frequented but couldn’t ever afford to buy the pieces. I felt like there had to be a middle-market for people like me who respected vintage clothing without wanting to disrespect their wallets. Read more>>
