MEET DEE

Tell us more about you! 

Im a mother of two — Malehkai (3) and Malia (6 weeks) Both of my parents immigrated from Mexico but I was born and raised in my beautiful state of Oregon . I’m proud of my roots and where I come from. I’m a lot like my father, and would much rather be on the porch sipping a cup of coffee :) than pretty much anything else. I’m passionate about people and photography. I love meeting people and hearing their stories of where they’ve been and how they got to where they are :)

What is something you have overcome as a woman in this world? 
Learning to love myself again. When was I was 3 months pregnant with my son Malehkai, I became a single mother. I questioned everything. Why my life ended up like this. Being a single mother was never the plan. But over time I learned to accept what had happened, I turned the page, reminded my self how worthy I was of all the good this world had to offer and that It was ok to start all over again. —and I re connected with my first love.

.
What are you most proud of in the work that you do? How do you empower those around you?
Im proud of the work I do because I truly feel like I can be a positive outlet to those around me. Wether they need a hug, or advice or even prayer. I try to use my words wisely when speaking to people. I believe words are powerful and can have so much impact in ones life.

What drew you to become a Brand Ambassador for Imani Collective?

The women behind it all. The fact that all of the products were made by different women with different backgrounds and stories and to me that says a lot about the products and the love poured into the company. ❤️
