After being a single woman in this modern era of dating, I experienced first-hand what it means to love and have love loss. After overcoming my own obstacles with learning “What Love Is” through growth and maturity, I decided to share this journey with others while continuing to learn from their happiness and heartache. I created this platform because I noticed there was a need for men and women alike to express themselves, hear and be heard. My goal and mission is to get us back to love and finding the best route for each person. I’m by no means fully there or have it all figured out; this venture has allowed me to continue the pursuit of my own happiness. Read more>>

Makeup has always been a fun thing to do for, as cliche as it sounds, it was a stress reliever for me. As an African immigrant, new to the American lifestyle, I really didn’t too many outlets to direct my energy or my creativity into. And I say that loosely. I didn’t have friends to hang out with, social gatherings to participate in, so all I really had was me, myself and I. So if I wasn’t drawing, painting or watching Korean shows, I was watching YouTube videos and playing in makeup and practicing on my mum. Read more>>

I’ve always been an artist, in every sense of who I am, it just took me a while to gain the confidence and courage to live it fully. I was born in Venezuela to a Venezuelan preschool teacher and American missionary. We moved to the U.S when I was two and moved state to state until we settled in Hollywood FL at the age of seven. My childhood home was filled with art supplies and craft projects. I’d scribble drawings on my homework and class work and sell drawings of mermaids and fairies to my friends for 25 cents. I went to the university of FL for a bachelors in fine arts with a concentration in ceramics. Somewhere along the way I lost confidence in myself and felt I couldn’t possibly become a full-time artist. I decided to become a preschool art teacher after graduation. Read more>>

I became the majorette coach at Miramar High School in 2016. It’s something I love to do. After my first season, I wanted to do so many things creatively for my girls. The girls (and sometimes with the help from their parents/guardians) have uniforms and other such things that they’re responsible for paying to participate through the season. Some of my girls couldn’t afford anything else outside of that package. They would want different shirts with our logo or something with their names on them to wear during school. It was another way for them to show-off that they were a Sassy Sweetheart Majorette. Read more>>

I am a real estate agent here in the beautiful county of Broward, FL. I started this journey 11 years ago when I learned the importance of financial freedom and financial literacy. I learned the concept of financial freedom at a 3-day seminar called The Millionaire Mind Intensive. It was much more about abundance mindset than money itself but it really shifted everything for me that day. After learning about passive income and ways to attain it, I became fixated with the idea to learn the ins and outs of real estate. I started from the bottom and worked my way up by volunteering my time to a local established real estate agent and learn about the business. Read more>>

Since my junior year of college, I knew that I wanted to be a business owner and create my own brand. I’ve always been creative and found myself indulging in many creative aspects, from drawing and painting to ceramics and photography. At the time, I was mainly pursuing photography and would take graduation photos at my University or even do photoshoots for fun. I loved being behind the camera and taking part in the production. Read more>>

It all started back in spring 2016, just standing in a parking lot with some friends. Where we were discussing different ideas moving forward with what we all are trying to achieve out of our own creativity. It was plenty of different things, names, events, places, etc. on what we wanted to do or be apart of. No names were really sticking in the beginning, but we had the acronym BLK from the jump. We just didn’t know how to make it our own just yet. So I settled on the name B.eyond L.imited K.ulture months after the fact of going through names with everyone that was there in the beginning. Took some time, but here we are! The name alone made me and everyone around me believe in something bigger than ourselves, and that’s why it’s not only BLK but BeyondLimitedKulture! Read  more>>

Oddly Fresh

It all started with Our YouTube channel OddlyFresh. Every time we introduced ourselves to people, they would think that Oddly Fresh is a name of a Clothing Brand, so took our chances and started it up. We also have a lot of support especially from our friends from several different colleges such as FAU and FIU. Read more>>
