What made you start ForHerCosmetics: I started ForHerCosmetics because I understood the need for more inclusive beauty products for women of color. I also wanted to create a brand that brought awareness to the ingredients we use on our skin everyday. Outside of bringing amazing products I wanted to be the representation that my community needed for women of color in STEM. As a chemist I knew it was my duty to inspire the next generation of scientists.
What does beauty mean to you:  Beauty means expression through art in this case, makeup is art and your face is the canvas. Beauty is what you make it and more so what's on the inside versus the outside.
