Logan Hendry

As soon as I discovered people were getting paid to draw Scooby-doo, I knew I wanted to be a cartoonist. Over the years, as I learned and grew, my interests would shift but my desire to draw wouldn’t. All this to say It’s all I’ve ever wanted to do and I’m not sure what I would be doing if I wasn’t doing this. Read more>>

Terry Berger

I’ve been interested in photography for as long as I can remember. I started shooting on film exactly two years ago, and ever since, I’ve fallen in love with the entire process. My grandfather and namesake, Terry Shainberg, was a photographer. Read more>>

Lauryn Colquitt

I worked in marketing for about seven years and really enjoyed it, but I didn’t have a fiery passion for it. I focused on self-discovery for a while and it led me to where I am now. I have always been into self-care and beauty so being an aesthetician was a natural fit for me. Read more>>

My journey began in 2013 during my sophomore year of college. I was playing junior college basketball at Southern Union State Community College in Wadley, Alabama— the middle of nowhere.

Growing up with a mother and father both on drugs, I had to raise myself and grow up faster then what I wanted to.

After leaving school, I found myself working “jobs” around the field that I majored in. Like most, I thought this was the path I wanted to take and make a firm career. One day some co-workers of mine noticed my physique (as I played sports while in school) and asked if I wanted to come and workout with them at 5:00 am before work. Read more>>

Ashanti Garrison

I’ve always had a passion for fine arts. I grew up around a family who was also creative but never pursued art as more than a hobby so naturally, I did the same. I took dance, art, and orchestra classes for years. Read more>>

Ellena Balkcom

Some years ago, I was a Global Internal Communications Specialist at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. I had a young family and was happy living the dream, which was writing for one of the most admired companies in the world. Read more>>

Nicole Basden

I am the classic case of someone that was afraid to follow what was in her heart because she had bills and a child. I’ve worked in Corporate America for years. I experienced a period in which I was laid off 4 times within a 1 year period. Read more>>
