Since I was a kid, I’ve always dreamed of designing and being a part of the fashion industry. As I grew older, I began to fall in love with sports and fitness. Once I started college, the idea of FierceFitz Designs came about. Since I enjoyed fashion and fitness, I decided to start a custom activewear line (FierceFitz Designs). FierceFitz Designs was in the making for about two years until it became a reality. Now that FierceFitz Designs is up and running, it will continue to break barriers and test the boundaries on what can be done.
2. What would you tell the rest of Acadiana makes you special?
What makes me special is that I am here to listen to the customers. I thrive off pleasing and making others happy.
3. What are you most proud of?
What I am most proud of is starting my own company at the age of 22 while being enrolled in college. Being an entrepreneur isn’t an easy job and involves lots of risks, I am proud that I stuck to my vision and am now able to share it with the world.
4. Where do you see your business in 10 years? What are your plans for the future?
In 10 years, aside from owning FierceFitz Designs, I see myself owning my own interior design company, building and owning my own gym, owning my own clothing manufacturer, and establishing a non-profit organization to help young entrepreneurs make their dreams and visions become a reality. My plans for the future are to provide jobs to the community, better the economy by volunteering and donating to charities and continuing to develop companies that will help build and benefit communities.
