“I got married at 40.

I started YouTube at 45. I got pregnant at 48.

Got my first beauty brand collaboration at 50.

Got a second beauty collab with @juviasplace at 51!

And at 52 years old, my YouTube channel went from 50k to 165k in TWO months.


Everything has happened to me later in life and I have a funny feeling there’s more to come, so everyday I pray that God gives me long life.
