We asked some of the most creative folks we know to open up to us about why they chose a creative career path. Check out their responses below.

Kenzie Alece | Nail Artist

I have always known from a young age that I wanted to do something creative for a career. I never saw myself sitting behind a desk doing a regular 9-5 job. When I was little, I developed a passion for fashion and started designing and sewing clothes for my stuffed animals, and from that point, my love for nails started to blossom. Since then, I have been known for my nails because I was always doing a different design or had them polished a fun color. I love that in this career no day is the same something new is happening everyday and that you can pull inspiration from anywhere. One of the best feelings is seeing the reaction of a client after you have finished their nails. I truly enjoy this career and I appreciate the fact that I’m able to make a client’s nails look like a masterpiece which in turn makes them feel great. Read more>>

As kids it started as going out to concerts with friends to see our favorite bands and just have a moment where we could escape these problems for a few hours. We all at some point realized that as much as we enjoyed being able to have this we wanted to help provide that for others and be a part of that escape. Read more>>
