Cheniqua's story

I am a Navy brat through and through! I was born in Oregon City, Oregon to a single mother but at the age of one she made the selfless decision to enlist in the Navy to make a better life for her family. I moved around from city to city and from state to state all over the country. It was a life full of uncertainty and lacking stability. It gave me the desire to find soil and plant my roots so that I can create memories in the same place. Today, I am back in Oregon raising my daughter in my families hometown, and working on creating those long lasting memories with her and my husband. I dream of a home to call my own, a community where diversity is celebrated, my daughter excelling in her goals, and serving others. I dream of lending a helping hand to those who just need a hand up like myself. I've always had ideas and a creative side. My grandmother is an artist and a jewelry designer with her own business and I have always admired her work. I want to make something that I am proud of with my own hands and make just even one person smile. That is the ultimate payment! A smile from a stranger all because you put your heart and soul into something you love.
