Leena's story

I am a proud wife, a mother, a graphic designer, a free spirit, a perfectionist, a determined entrepreneur, a sport bag toting mom to three handsome boys all under four years of age and I am a dreamer. I graduated high school at the young age of sixteen and had no direction in life. I had no desire to become anything or anyone. After a few years of a less than perfect college experience in the marketing field, I decided to take a break. I began working for a real estate agent and started creating his marketing material using MS Word. It was then that I found my love for all things design. After marrying my incredible husband, having my first child and pregnant with my second, I decided to go back to college to finish what I had started. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design two months after having my second son. Life was hectic then but it was definitely worth it. I gained the confidence I needed to become a skilled graphic designer that eventually turned into the confidence in knowing I could be a successful business owner, as well. Yes, balancing a household, a husband, 3 rambunctious boys, 2 dogs and work is hard but I make it happen. I have to. For the sake of my family and for my brain injured sister who will one day, depend on me for financial support. I do not want to disappoint them nor her. They need me and I need this business. I constantly remind my boys to always try hard and to never give up. That anything is possible as long as you work hard. Well, this is me working hard to make them proud.
