I was exhilarated and proud of my decision. I wore my “crown of glory” with honor, however, I wasn’t completely happy with myself. My hair was making a complete comeback, nonetheless, but my skin was still a problem. I suffered from hormonal acne, active hyperpigmentation, discoloration, and scarring. I then decided to commit to clearing my skin. I went to multiple dermatologists, who only prescribed medicine that didn’t work. There weren’t any brands designed for “us”, blacks. So, I thought to myself, why not make your own products? I took that vision and ran with it. I researched home remedies and basic skincare, searching for the formula for beautiful skin. Months of research and trials led to my first ADOH product, the turmeric and honey mask. I soon after achieved my desired clear complexion. My first product led to a number of other products and more. My results were so beautiful and mind-boggling I wanted to share my findings and this was the beginning of my entrepreneurial ambitions.
Today, I am an entrepreneur. I am a proud businesswoman. I now sell full-time. My business has grown tremendously since I first began. In 2018, I was selling part-time as a hobby. To me, being an entrepreneur isn’t about starting a business, paying for a tax ID, and simply slapping a name on it. True entrepreneurship is creating personal and financial freedom. It is about the creation process, not just the creation of work but ideas. Being an entrepreneur takes willingness, consistency, and passion. My mother told me once, “When you choose a career path, choose something you wouldn’t mind doing for free.” This is why I have chosen to pursue a career in Dermatology. When you shop with ADOH we make a commitment to you and your skin.
