#HERstory- Quanesha Lucas
Blessed, highly favored. I do what is necessary and sacrifice it all as a mother to build an empire for my family and make sure my children are always straight. The Bible says to leave an inheritance for your children’s children and I will be obedient and efficient in that. I use every super woman power I have to reach my goals, keep my light shining and provide as a single mother. No its not easy but it is surely worth it. Kristian Skye, LLC (@kristianskye.essentials) is the beginning of my new journey.

I live in Charleston, South Carolina where I design and sell beautiful jewelry that affirms women and specifically Black women. I also sell spirituals tools such as crystals, positive affirmation shirts and more to build up women. I’ve been a creative for over 9 years and love using my craft to love on others.
#HERstory- Deanndra Ross
Hello there! Have we met yet? My name is Deanndra Ross, founder of STATE YOUR MOOD! I am from Fitzgerald, Georgia (born and raised). Currently 29 years old ( 5 more months until I’m in the 30+ club 🙌🏾😂) A few things about me: * Cancer ♋️ * Mother of one 🎀 * Hobbies: going on cruises, listening and dancing to music, playing video games, watching movies (horror and action), & crafts (diys, making candles, and designing apparel) * Fav. food: Pizza & Mexican dishes What inspired me to create STATE YOUR MOOD? I spent a lot of my years feeling like I didn’t have a voice of my own as I entered my teens. I struggled to express my feelings as well as my interests (video games and anime). So yeah I was that kid that got bullied for a lot of things when it came down to who I was. I would always get told “oh that’s for boys”. So all of that actually convinced me that I didn’t matter. So yes I did what most would do in that situation, change who I was to be accepted. To fit in. As I entered adulthood I still had issues with expressing my emotions. But one day I had to sit myself down and ask myself “Why do I allow myself to be treated this way!?”. After I got done addressing my pain, cried a lot of tears, self isolation, and going through an emotional roller coaster. I made that decision to stop keeping how I felt inside and find myself again. And baby a whole Phoenix was emerged, okay. I started to speak up for myself. Demanding the respect that I, including you, deserved. Even though I still believe I am on the journey of fully finding my voice and expressing who I am, I created STATE YOUR MOOD March 2018. I used my brand as an outlet to express myself through various products. My goal is for everyone who was or is like me that struggles with finding their voice, finds it & KEEP IT. Even if you do have to express it through a T-shirt; STATE YOUR MOOD!
