Ehjaylyn Henry, Tampa, FL
Moving to the U.S. from a small island in the Caribbean, Ehjaylyn personified the “American dream,” earning accounting and Master of Business degrees by age 22. Although advised by adults in her life to pursue a “practical” career path, Ehjaylyn found working as an accountant didn’t satisfy her creative spirit. “When I enrolled in cosmetology school, I found the one thing that never feels like work,” she says. Ehjaylyn finds inspiration in a quote by Maya Angelou, “If you’re always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you are.” Upon graduating beauty school, she wants to help her clients unveil a different side of themselves and share their own amazing and unique beauty.
