Thank God for Growth: Nicole’s Natural Hair Journey

When we look at throwback photos of us from high school, or they pull themselves to the top of our Facebook feeds (most times to our dismay), we often get a jolt of memories.

Between being a long-time basketball fanatic, model and business professional, Natasha is agreeably a jack of all trades. “I am employed with Frito Lay where I am a Read More
