"I have so many inspirations from other content creators to significant women in my life. It's pretty hard to narrow down who has inspired me the most, but the one person who has pushed me the most is my mom.

Was there someone who inspired you most to become the Dunn Diva that you are?
I have so many inspirations from other content creators to significant women in my life. It's pretty hard to narrow down who has inspired me the most, but the one person who has pushed me the most is my mom. She inspires me with her encouragement to live my most authentic self and to know that the best person I can be is myself.
Can you describe what being a Dunn Diva is to you?
A Dunn Diva is a woman who is authentic and true to herself. She always puts her best foot forward in everything that she does and she is resilient.
What is the most challenging difficulty you've faced as a womxn?
The most challenging difficulty that I have faced as a woman is comparing my life to what other women's life looks like through a highlight reel, social media. Also, finding my true groove through "adulting".
What are you looking forward to in the future?
I am looking forward to learning how to live on my own, and to sustain a beautiful life for myself. Also, I look forward to seeing where my social media presence takes me with my blog, Instagram and YouTube page.
Speaking of the future, what spring fashion piece are you excited to wear?
I am excited to wear bright colors and pretty wrap sandals and heels!
What advice would you like to impart to the ladies reading this right now?
Figuring out life takes time, and God has our best interest at heart. He knows what we need, and when we need it. Sometimes things may seem uncertain to the point where you may think that there really isn't a light at the end of the tunnel. I struggle with uncertainties in my life, but thats the point of "walking by faith and not by sight." We won't always have a blue print of our lives, but we have to be resilient and God will work everything out in due time. He wouldn't bring us this far to leave us!
