We had the good fortune of connecting with Shanawa Monroe and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Shanawa, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor is being able to provide a service that can spread love, and joy. My brand is to bring alive any creation of one’s imagination.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I customize tumblers, tshirts, badge reels, ashtrays and more. Everyone has their own imagination and a way that they see things. No one person is the same. What sets me apart from others is I’m me. And being yourself is what makes you different. No one can be you. I got to where I am today with hard work and dedication. The journey is not easy. There will be bumps along the way but you have to remind yourself that you can do anything you set your mind to. Keep pushing and praying. The things I’ve learned and still learning is never give up. If you believe in yourself and your dreams, they will become reality. Anything worth having/ achieving will not come easy. I want the world to know that GlittedUpDesignz is a one of a kind brand that stands out in a crowd. All things are made by hand with love.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well I’m pretty much a homebody. Always have been. And the way the world is today I’m not sure of too many fun places to visit or hang out. But I would try my best to make the visit one to enjoy!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to thank my backbone Kevin for pushing me and believing in me when I have doubts about myself and my talent. Without him I don’t know where I would be. Thank you baby for being there and being my biggest fan! I love you baby! ♥️
