We had the good fortune of connecting with Ashley Aleman and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ashley, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Being able to inspire young ladies or ladies to create there own brand from the ground up. I just grew up always wanting my own brand seeing other girls , artist and ladies have there own made me want to do my own.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Where I am in my business today is I am currently still growing my business and my name. It was hard at first because I didn’t no anybody who had a business so once I started to be consistent I started to attract allot of ladies to me who was supporting my brand and work ! It feels so amazing cause I be underestimating myself so being able to be seen feel great ! Lessons I learned along the way was to just focus on me and my future ! I was always so lost in what people thought about me , people pleasuring and it literally lead me to no where until I started to put my self first things just started to align for me ! I grew up very difficult my mom and dad were seperated since she was pregnant of me. I was in foster care due to something that happen to me as a child. I use to always get bullied in school just for me being my self! It was like growing up my life been up and downs but I always managed to rise up against the obstacles and here I am now still conquering anything life throws my way. I always been a dedicated person if it takes me a while to achieve a goal I won’t give up even if I want to I always push myself forward ! I just want to tell everyone always stay true to your self , your life and your dream no matter what! It may take a couple years to accomplish but it’s better than being in the same position! Always push yourself for more never get too comfortable with what you have !

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them to downtown Los Angeles or Hollywood because there is just so much food , drinks and some games ! There is also mountains views where you can see all of Los Angeles ! it is so beautiful!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I wanted to give out a shoutout to all my family members , my supporters , all my close friends , and my music friends. They all push me to limit and inspire me to live on to my full potential.
