    I graduated from University at Albany in 2012 and received my Master’s in Education Degree from Hunter College in 2014. Currently I work as High School Business Teacher.

    Natural Hair Journey

    I decided to stop perming my hair my senior year of college in 2012. I transitioned for three years and big chopped in June of 2015.  As a Latina with kinky curls, I felt that there wasn't enough representation of my type of hair in the media,  Instagram & YouTube. I decided to learn as much as possible about how to care and style my type of  hair.

    The Social Media Journey

    In December of 2015, I started my Instagram page (Le_Frosie) to inspire those who also felt underrepresented. I love caring for my hair and showing others how beautiful our natural hair is.

    My Motto: Inspire. Empower. Create Your Own Beauty Standards
