A loan helped .
I grew up in the city of Pittsburgh with my Father, Mother and younger sister. My father is a Barber and Businessman. He has been in the beauty industry for 25 years today. My Mother too was a working woman, who ended her career at 32 after discovering she had heart disease. My mother is still living strong today :) Coming from a strong, business savvy family definitely set the platform for my sister and I. We both furthered our education, and started our own businesses in our young 20s. Today, I'm 5 years in business, working on expanding and bringing a host of new things to Aliya Wray's. Outside of the salon, I want to get involved in other investments, such as real estate. My sister and I just started a business together, an online boutique (coming spring 2018). I am also a part of a freelance production company. I'm able to utilize my degree, in Communication Media Studies. We started our first web series in Fall 2017 and hope to market it on social media and gain revenue in the future. I'm working extremely hard, and often just need some help to keep my dreams alive. This loan will definitely be appreciated, used correctly and most of all, helping with my success.
