Where are you from?
Salt Lake City, UT
Why did you become a hairdresser?
It was my first year in middle school. I had switched schools and was the new kid. I was trying to fit in with kids that had been going to school with each other since kindergarten. I had felt like kids were not being kindest to me. So my Mom took me to have a girls day at the salon. I got my hair cut, and when I left I felt beautiful! I got lots of compliments and I felt like I finally fit in. I chose to do hair because I want to make other people feel that way. You never know what people might be going through and I want to be able to be a light into peoples lives.
What is your biggest accomplishment in this industry?
My biggest accomplishment is opening a hair salon at the age of 19, And being the first owner of a Kelly Cardenas salon out side of Kelly himself.
