“As seen in my video, my workplace is in nice want of a makeover! After I based Soulteria in 2019, I poured my whole life financial savings into my enterprise and didn’t have many assets left for my workplace area. By a mixture of thrifting and upcycling, I’ve gotten my workplace space to the place it’s right this moment. 

Over the previous few years, along with dealing with the worldwide well being pandemic brought on by COVID-19, I’ve needed to face many private life challenges, which started with my well being and finally culminated in a pending medical separation from my profession in the USA Navy. Though throughout this I discovered a brand new outlook on life and my enterprise, I’ve not been capable of do the identical for my workspace.

I imagine Soulteria is deserving of this makeover as a result of it’s a illustration of all of the obstacles I’ve needed to face to get right here. From being raised in a house with a sugar mum or dad, to immigrating to the USA with no cash and no plan.

Soulteria is a cumulation of all of the destruction and negativity I’ve lived via and a dedication to go away this earth higher than I got here into it.

I’d love an workplace that actually represents the work Soulteria is doing for younger girls, our group, and the planet with group, storage, and instruments wanted to assist us enhance our high quality of life on this area in addition to productiveness and magnificence.”
