Curlfest 2017: A First-Timer Powerful Experience-Giveaway Included

I can personally count on both hands how many interviews I arrive in wearing my natural curls, versus wearing my hair straight. Unfortunately, all the jobs I’ve attained, I interview for the job with straight hair. A part of me feels as I gave into society standards when I sport a straight hair-do just to land the job.Now keep in mind, I’m not speaking for every curly-haired girl; I’m solely speaking from my experience. When my mentor invited me to the CurlFest in Prospect Park, I had a flashback of my horrible experience. When she explained to me what Curlfest is about, I automatically fell in love with the concept a festival celebrating natural curls.

Luckily I met someone who changed the noise volume my heels made as I walk. I met Mary Arnett a few weeks ago at a GirlBossNYC event.(GirlBossNYC is a social network of empowered and inspired NYC women supporting community, careers, and each other). Being the fashion addict I am, I notice a high-quality leather shoe from across the room. I approached Mary and urged her to spill her shopping secret.
