BH: What gets you up every day to work in your purpose?
CM: God and being curious to what he wants me to do that day. God called us to be vessels with our gifts to give back. Knowing I can be used helps get me up.
BH: Why do you hustle?
CM: I hustle for my family name, my well being and the ones that need to go further after our time is up.
BH: What barriers have you overcome on your journey to success?
CM: The biggest barrier was after being laid off and being rejected financial aid to continue my education. I had to move back home to St. Louis. God had different plans for me. Going home provided a way for me to reset my priorities and for long time desirable opportunities to open up. Nothing but God and a praying Mother.
