Vibes were high at The Maya Salon in Pasadena last Saturday where we hosted Empower and Pamper for 15 inspiring ladies in our local community. Single mothers, college students, and FIDM alumni gathered for a day of self-reflection, goal setting, and mini-makeovers (complete with hair, nails, makeup, dope henna tattoos, and a photo shoot #feelinboujeeAF). At times we don't spend enough time investing in ourselves and we wanted to encourage these amazing women to take charge of their own lives and careers, and kick ass (cause y'all know that's what we were born to do).
Hosted by our Co-Founders, Laura Fama and Ashley Jones, makeup artist, Alana Dawn, and Maya Salon owner, Azelle Santa Ana, these four boss babes shared the ups and downs of their career paths and how they got to where they are today; a friendly reminder that nothing comes easy, but if you put in the hard work, passion, and most importantly, time for ourselves, it will all be worth it in the end.
While everyone mingled and networked, you could sense gratitude in the air - it feels good to be surrounded by high energy that motivates you to become the woman you envision yourself to be. Through events like Empower and Pamper, we aim to create a community of well-being and hope that these wonderful women pay it forward to in their society as well.
