KISH: Tell us about you.
I’m Angel Johnson. A Master Cosmetologist, Educator and Platform Artist. I just celebrated being in the business for 26 years! I love being of service and helping others see themselves in a confident, positive light through hair care.
KISH: What is your dream and how will accomplishing your dream benefit you and others?
Angel: I have 2 dreams. One is for myself, which is to be a key hairstylist at Paris Fashion Week. The other is to instill in our underserved youth self-love and high self-esteem by embracing their natural beauty through grooming and hair care.
KISH: Who or what inspired you to pursue this dream?
Angel: Societal expectations of beauty inspired me to take on this challenge to educate our youth to accept who they are, what they are born with, and how to take care and love just that.
KISH: What challenges have you encountered while pursuing your dream?
Angel: The challenges I’ve encountered are people being on board. Ultimately, I need like minded people to give their time and skills also, parents that are willing to change their mindsets and be open to nurturing their child in this manner.
KISH: Who or what inspired you to keep pushing regardless of the challenges you’ve encountered?
Angel: Though it’s been slow progress, I have a circle of friends that keeps pushing me to make it happen.
KISH: Please provide final thoughts/advice for others by finishing this sentence… dream.
Angel: Situations and circumstances may shift your path but never give up on the journey towards your dream.
