Gladys is hair/makeup artist who is a loving mother and wonderful wife. When Gladys and I met through Vanessa and Dalia at Raw Mane Lounge, I knew instantly we would become friends. She is lively and spirited, with a kind heart. I love that she is a girly girl and has the drive to achieve anything she wants in life. After reading her answers to the interview questions, I admire her the most for taking things as the come, going with the flow and being excited to see what next in her life. She is a wonderful mommy to two adorable kiddos and they made me laugh the entire time we were photographing.
Gladys is one of my first models to wear my new tulle skirts made by Vicki’s Sewing Creations. She did her hair and makeup herself! Read below to see her answers on living dreams and achieving goals. You don’t want to miss it!
1. To women and young girls out there, what would you like to say about pursuing goals and dreams?
Just do it! You can do anything you’ve ever dreamed of! What’s the worst thing that can happen? Even the most successful people were rejected so many times!!
2. What would you say was the hardest part about achieving your goals?
Wow, I have always been a dreamer. But I didn’t want to stay a dreamer. I want to achieve those dreams. I’m a go getter! The hardest part for me would be having that voice of fear say you can’t do it or the what ifs?
3. Growing up, what type of self-image did you have?
I’ve never cared too much what people thought, I had the greatest supporters. My family! Although they had to set me straight every now and then. Haha sometimes that can get you in trouble!

Not a thing! My life has been a roller coaster. Everything that has happened to me has molded me to be the person I am today! I’m so grateful and I will never stop learning and growing!
5. Have you always know you were going to be __________ or did evolve as you went along?
I have always been a girly girl! I love all the glitz and the glamour!! Makeup, hair, fashion. I have always had that in me. So I went for it and went to school to be a stylist and since then, I have felt like WOW I get paid to do this? I love it!!
6. For the women out there dealing with fear and self-doubt, what do you want to say about that?
You are perfect the way you are! Take care of yourself, when you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good you can do anything!

Fantastic!! I definetly like to treat myself!! I work hard and play harder!! A total “must do” for any mommy.
10. Self- Confidence, how do you keep it up and keep working at your goals everyday?
Every morning I think about what I’m going to do to reach a goal or dream. You have to keep them in front of you because if you shoot for nothing, you won’t miss!! Life is too short to do all the things I want to do!! Surround yourself with leaders!
