We had the good fortune of connecting with Aliyah (Liyah) Parker and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Aliyah (Liyah), we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Take the RISK! You will never know what you’re capable of or where you can go. Even if you fall, you’ve gained valuable information and experience from failure. Do it scared!

Putting yourself out there and trying something new will change how you approach similar situations in the future.

Taking risks has been very beneficial for me. It allows me to step outside of my comfort zone so that I can reach my full potential. If I didn’t take the risk of leaving my job in 2015, I wouldn’t have been able to explore this creative side of me.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I believe my authenticity sets me apart. I am most proud of my both my personal and business growth,

I am beyond excited for my future endeavors! I have a lot of great things in store for you guys. I am elated to present them to the world.

Hard work, consistency and wanting better has gotten me to where I am today. It was not always easy and still isn’t, I FAILED but I didn’t allow that to stop me. I took it as a learning experience, soaking up knowledge both good and bad.

Perseverance, Patience’s (Nothing happens over night).

If you believe it you can achieve it.
Brand- When you look good, you feel good. Embracing your natural beauty, loving yourself through it all.
