Hello Everyone, I am Ashli Mintoya, the blogger behind CURATE YOUR BEAUTY. I started my blog as a way to express myself and to get out of my shell. But I also want to inspire other women and share my journey of things I've been through and how I overcame them.
I remember how I was so shy about everything including being who I truly due things that have happened when I was younger. I started sharing things I went through and how I inspired some friends and how my friends always said they love the way I dress my style and how I carried myself. It truly inspires me to be more of myself. Then I started doing make-up for prom and helping friends pick out outfits and I just loved doing it. No, it's not what I wanted to do professionally. My dream was to work in healthcare.
While having confidence is easier said then done, it's the best thing you can have to find the beauty in you.
In 2010 I became pregnant with my son who changed me forever especially when he was diagnosed with autism in 2014. It made me depressed for a while but I knew I had to be strong for my son and get him all the help he needs. In 2015 I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and that was even scarier. I didn't understand why all this was happening to me because I feel like I had already been through so much in life. But I knew I had to keep my faith and that God had a better plan for me.
Fast forward 2020, I am in my career field which is healthcare as a finance manager and now I'm a blogger which took me some time to start but I'm happy I did. This blog allows me to do so much and express myself.
