“When I started this business, my tagline was, ‘The genesis of all change is awareness.’ I am now more aware of how far I came and aware of my abilities and the possibilities that lay ahead. SMIF’s support through the Prosperity Initiative has been priceless. I wanted to do this business so that I could help others, support myself and still spend time with my children. I’m doing all of those things today and more. You’ve allowed me to take my passions and dreams and turn them into something really amazing. I never stopped dreaming, but now I’m able to dream in color again.”
