✨This is my Journey✨

In 2016 I moved out of my house at 18 with nothing more then 2k in my name. Which most of went to a down payment on a room I rented in a shitty neighborhood in LA. I remembered having only $5 dollars in my bank account and having a maxed out credit card. I worked 3 jobs and was going to school and I remember having to do my grocery shopping at the dollar store. The struggle was real.

I walked into 2020 thinking “this going to be my year.” I had finally paid off my crippling debt, moved into a new apartment with my girlfriends, and I gotten a promotion at work and was finally building a savings. I felt like I was finally figuring out how to be an adult.

Then COVID came and it stayed for a lot longer then any of us had ever anticipated. As a result I lost my job, a few distant family members, and in every corner you turned it was like an apocalypse.
I felt like everything I had worked hard for was crumbling right in front of me and I couldn’t do anything about it. I felt helpless and disappointed in myself, which made things worst because I couldn’t stop the negative thoughts. I became very depressed for months and I just felt lost.
I decided enough was enough. I started working on myself and taking action on making my dream turn into reality to distract me.

That’s when likely angelz was born.
Likely Angelz is for everyone like me. I get it and I got you!

This feb 2021 I sent out over 100 packages and it’s the first time I can truly say that I feel proud of myself. I’m learning so much everyday and I’m constantly trying to learn how to improve things. You all inspire me to keep going. I can’t even begin to explain how thankful I am for the outpouring of kind words & support.

COVID is really shitty but if I think about it, I’d still be stuck at my old 9-5 if it wasn’t for this pandemic and I would of never never had gotten the chance to take a leap of faith and launch my small biz.

I hope sharing my journey with you also inspires you to chase after what you love and just know that there are better days. When you feel down just keep push forward you might surprise yourself on the end💞

Send much love and angel dust
