About me

Heyyy…I’m Chaka

Prolific Lifestyle & Business Architect

 

Christ Believer * Mom * Tech Exec * Hair Stylist

~~~~~~

Like you, the titles are endless…I am a believer of Christ Jesus, a boy mom, executive at a technology firm, cosmetologist for 25 years, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend. I am a WOMAN, juggling a lot, enjoying wins, disappointed in losses, but CONTENT.

I would remise if I excluded my teenage years and jumped straight into my degree so let’s start there. I began braiding hair with a partner at the tender age of 12. Rocking a pager (pre-cellphones), we hung fliers in the neighborhood, built a clientele and were featured in braiding magazines. I excelled in school and though I always kept hair clients, I completed my bachelor degree in Management focused on Management Information Systems (basically technology and business). Landing my first job after college at one of the largest consulting firms, I successfully checked of many boxes on my list.

Fast forward, with multiple consulting firms under my belt, opening and closing my salon, I continue to have a love for technology and business. Being a black woman in tech, when there are few is both challenging and rewarding. Through it all, God’s faithfulness have proven to be true. Things were not ALL perfect but God took all the opportunities and worked on my character, build my love for him, and in turn increased my acceptance and love for myself!

So this blog, this site, is sharing pieces of me as God inspires. The pictures may look polished, but I am not perfect!

Follow Christ with me and let’s grow together!
