Khadijah Robinson, Ogle School of Hair, Sin & Nails Stafford, Houston TX
Growing up in a “family of creatives and entrepreneurs,” Khadijah dreamed of a career that would allow her to be creative while paying her success forward. She sees makeup as a transformative medium that can be used to create a signature statement evoking the individual beauty within each person. As an aspiring aesthetician, Khadijah says, “I look forward to blending my passion for esthetics and entrepreneurship to create a business that also serves as a creative outlet.” And just as family inspired her career path, the single mom turns to her eight-year-old son to inspire her future. “My son supports me every step of the way and he’s shown me that there is nothing wrong about dreaming big and nothing scary about moving forward with that dream,” she says. As a woman of color, Khadijah says she wants to model for others the success that can be achieved by people who look like them and share big dreams for their future. Watch her video here.
