After working closely with this young woman in preparation for her upcoming reality show on Oxygen Network this Spring, It is with honor that I relay her story to you as she exemplifies the #BeYourOwnBoss lifestyles! Hailing as South Florida’s Miss Miami Gardens Aja Felice Watkins is my first INDEPENDENT SPOTLIGHT on #TeamBYOB
From her website: AjaFelice.com (My Journey)
Aja Felice Watkins is a woman that truly lives by the motto; pursue your dreams by all means necessary. She exudes positivity in a time when others might fall prey to the negative messages set forth in society. Aja embraces the renaissance spirit and believes that she is here on this earth to share her light. Whether it is through community activism, public speaking, mentoring or educating; she uses her abilities to empower women of all ages to believe in their dreams and make them a reality. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Allied Health Sciences from Florida A& M University in 2008; she has embarked on a technical college recruitment career. She currently is pursuing a MBA in Management at Nova Southeastern University. Her most recent aspiration has been to become an actress. Her goal is now a reality as she now co-stars in the new hit reality how, “Find Me My Man” on the Oxygen Network. She plays herself, an independent, intelligent, beauty queen known as the hard to get bachelorette in the big City of Miami, Florida. Formerly known as “Heart & Soul,” this dynamic new dating show centers on the outspoken and no-nonsense Miami matchmaker Natalie Clarice who runs a successful agency helping urban professional women fix their solo status.
Putting her MBA coursework to use, Aja is also the CEO of House of Felice. House of Felice is her vehicle to promote the public speaking, appearances and character development lessons for the community at large.
“House of Felice, empowers young women to develop an inner voice that resonates deep within- “Intelligence and beauty, both inside and out, are not mutually exclusive.” - Aja Watkins
Aja’s keen eye for beauty and as well as her experience in the modeling and pageant industry, have enabled her to dramatically improve her natural expertise in makeup, hair styling, and image consulting. She plans to put these talents to use by opening her own “Etiquette academy”, where young women will learn the importance of a positive self image and character education. In turn, by equipping young women with the necessary tools and resources to successfully defy life’s trials and tribulations. Known as a fashionable trendsetter, Watkins, will be launching her online fashion house by early summer, 2013.
