About the Author: 

Hello, I’m Carla, a Washington, DC area based nonprofit professional. I started Blooming Queens as a creative project that merges my passion for photography, travel, natural hair, women’s advocacy and a love for connecting with new people.

Investing time in my personal growth and health has directly impacted how I look, feel and the overall health of my hair. I truly believe that by sharing our unique stories of growth, we have the power to uplift others and become the beauty that we wish to see in the world.
