My New Found Love and Career Shift

Hello All,

I know I ensured my followers and friends that I would blog about dealing with low self-esteem and lack of confidence but I felt a shift in my thoughts and decided to blog about my new found love and career direction. Growing up I always wanted to be a teacher...I went through school determined to be a teacher to the young people. I went to college for about 4 yrs..started out at Prince Georges Community College and later transferred to Towson University majoring in Early Childhood Education (GO TIGERS). I also had jobs along the way in Day Cares, Childcare Centers, Summer Camps, Aftercare Programs, tutoring and all that comes along with it. I completed all my Early Childhood classes but was unsuccessful with completing all my Gen Ed courses due to withdrawal... Now blame me for wanting to do the Early Childhood classes first...they were SIMPLY FUN...I enjoyed writing lesson plans, thinking of creative activities, sitting in on meetings with other teachers, watching the childrem laugh and smile...and BOY did they have alot of interesting things to talk about. I gained a godson, Antoine, along the way who happens to be old enough to forget all about me now, three "nieces", (Akia, Aniya, Arianna) by two of my best friends, and two nephews (Tristan and Trenton).... WEIRD how all of their names are similar right?? LOL... I love it! I plan to have my own one day..I want to give birth to one and then adopt a baby outside of my race. Very passionate about all my plans and goals in life.

With all that said, how in the world did I get so wrapped up in doing makeup..lol... WELL simply put.. I LOVE MAKEUP..I love doing makeup, I love watching people do it, I love the way it looks on people...I am the FANATIC..lol...the colors, the arrangements, the blending, the creativity...it's all a part of the game! I would buy makeup before I buy clothes... Makeup excites me so much...lol...CAN'T YOU TELL?? Everyone knows, you can call me at the drop at a dime to do makeup and I will be right there! I advanced my skill in so many ways...these days I even shock myself from the results of applying makeup to people. I love what I do! I definately appreciate the responses I have been getting from models, photographers, promoters, etc. I have had my share of weddings, photoshoots, fashion shows, tv shows, makeovers, parties, etc. So I am ready to do any and every event...I am just one phone call away! "Barbie Diva is on the move"....

Shout out to my company Cande Paintz Artistry! Good things are coming...just wait!
