KATRINA OF SCENTURA CREATIONS:
"Do you remember being younger, people always asking “what do you want to be when you grow up?” I never really knew what I was going to be, but I always pictured a life style that involved luxurious cars, clothes, vacations, homes. There came a point in time when I suddenly lost that picture when I dropped out of college. I thought that the only way I would ever be able to achieve my dream life was to do what everyone always told me to do…that was four years ago. I answered an ad in the paper that said office help four years ago as well, what would have been the beginning of a long process of job hunting ended with the opportunity of a lifetime. I’m now celebrating my 24th birthday next month with the company I grew up in! It’s amazing how much has changed in me, I look back on my old lifestyle the me before this business, and I almost cringe at the thought of where I might have been today had I given up when everybody told me to quit. It was hard for me to burn bridges with people that I love and grew up with from childhood, the problem was that they were broke. And I couldn’t and wouldn’t allow myself to give in. When people told me I would never be more than what “I’m destined to be”, I was like, what the hell does that mean anyways. So instead of letting society determine what I’m supposed to be, I decided to grab hold of the reigns and get my future back. I’m just so grateful. The best part is nobody handed me anything, I never expected a handout, the juice, the fire, and the burning desire was all the strength I needed to get what I want. I am a woman, I am independent, and I am my own boss. What could be better?
