I launched KarleezysWay.com in October 2016 after the realization that writing was my passion. Since the age of seven, I began writing poetry and creative writing. Over the years, that developed into writing freestyles and eventually, editorial writing. I went into college an aspiring New York Yankees sportscaster, but that vision changed by my junior year. I learned that if you do something you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life, and that is how I feel about writing. I hope to one day be an editor for a well renowned publication and build an empire from karleezysway.com.
I initially wanted to focus on culture and current events when I first launched my blog, until I noticed there was a movement on the rise- the curly, natural hair movement. I got into blogging about curly hair after I transitioned from heat damaged and overly processed hair. I felt so accomplished at the end of my transition journey, that I wanted to share that with the rest of the world and help them start their own path to natural, healthy hair. It fills me with pride to know that I have incentivized others to transition and/or appreciate their natural hair.
I truly feel humbled by all the support. If you all told me three years ago that my blog would go places, I would not have believed it. However, with passion and drive, anything is possible. With that being said, I encourage all those who want to start their own blog or business, to do it today. Everything is always a work in progress and that work will be much easier if you have others to help you grow along the way.
