We had the good fortune of connecting with Nakayla Hicks and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nakayla, how do you define success?
Success to me is actually accomplishing goals you’ve set for yourself and having a good outcome. Success to me is not giving up when things aren’t going the way you want or expected them to be and go. Success to me is believing and keeping faith in God and knowing that even when things are looking bad at the moment, it will be better. Success is hard, but it takes a strong-minded individual to make it through.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I started practicing makeup in 2019. I remember telling my mom that I wanted to do makeup and we went to the store and she bought everything I’ll need. Fast forward to 2022 I scheduled a class to enhance my skills and I’ve been at it ever since. I’m still practicing, I’m still getting there but I’m proud of myself for not giving up.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to shoutout God. That’s first and foremost, without him I wouldn’t be who i am today. Lord i can’t thank you enough for the many blessings. Secondly, I would like to shoutout my mother!!! That’s my best friend, my hero, my everything! My mom deserves all credit and recognition because Lord knows what we’ve been through TOGETHER! Her strength, her love, her support, her encouraging words….my mom is the true “make shit happen” i can go on and on. Lol. But I love you ma and I thank God for choosing you to be my mom!
