[Feature: Ambrosia]

It seems that wherever Ambrosia goes, love abounds. Each week, this vlogger and rising natural hair icon inspires thousands of women with her tutorials and slice of life videos. In the spirit of the Black Girls Rock movement, her creativity and drive is inspiring a humble league of young women who tune in to watch videos of her en route to her day gig, and as she showcases her other creative endeavors. Behind her signature tag, XOXO, is a smart, driven woman with a tremendous spirit and an abundant desire to share.

Where are you from?


You are quite a busy woman - wearing many hats,
possessing many talents: vlogger, blogger, jewelry designer, makeup artist, and stylist. What drives you? Your creativity?

I am a firm believer of the quote that one can do anything they put their mind to. I love a challenge and I am always finding new things to get into, just to keep busy.
Is it difficult to juggle so many roles?

It does get a bit exhausting at times, but I truly feel like a slacker if I’m not working on multiple things. I simply have a drive for success and I will get there, therefore I am more than willing to put in the work.
What advice do you have for other diversely talented creatives?

Be serious about what you want to do, keep your word and don’t ever second guess yourself. One other thing I like to do is not say a word to anyone about my long term goals, but keep it to myself.
How do you maintain balance?

I work hard, but I also know my body and the signs that it gives me. Knowing when to slow down and give your body that time to recover does wonders for your work ethic. You will get back to work feeling more refreshed than ever. I also try to eat well as much as possible and include exercise into my week
What inspires you?

As of late, my inspiration comes depending on the environment I am in. I love to work in nice modern spaces. I feel like it helps my creativity flow. Also, complete silence is the best. I am inspired by people, places, and things.

What is the inspiration behind your current jewelry collection?

Statement pieces, definite conversation starters. . . Edgy/Chic!
What are your long-term goals for the line? Your boutique?
I plan on opening a boutique location in the near future. There are also a few things in the works that I will not be mentioning to anyone just yet...expect finer materials.

What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about life. I love to learn. I am passionate about becoming a better me.
Are there any social issues close to your heart?
As a child I had dreams of someday becoming a Vet. I bet the internet never knew that
one! I have a huge heart for animals, and as of late, I have been big on the issue of animal abuse and neglect.
What effect do you hope to have on the people that experience you

I hope to inspire individuals to create a life for themselves, follow through with their goals, and be more positive. There is so much negativity in the world, it’s ridiculous, life is so much better if you focus on yourself and work at being the best at what you do.

Thanks Ambrosia!
