Seven years ago when I first started my journey within the beauty industry, I could not have chosen a better role model than Anastasia.
I was in make-up school when I first wrote her a letter asking for advice and trying to pick her brain on the ups and downs of this industry.
I never sent the letter. I needed to be ready. I had plans and dreams I wanted to accomplish before I would sit across the table from the woman whom in my eyes was the perfect example of the American dream, the woman who had the drive and the vision to turn everything into reality.
