20-year-old Hayley Miller spent her teen years homeless, bouncing from hostel to hostel, surrounded by drugs, prostitution and alcohol. Hayley promised herself she'd stay strong, stay focused on her design dreams and not become a victim of circumstance and that's exactly what she did! She ended up moving in with her grandmother and created a business plan to launch her very own line of handbags. Shortly after, she got an investor on board and her first collection is to launch later this month!! Hayley's even caught the attention of high-end department stores who carry other lines like Chloe and Chanel.
I give mad AWEstruck props to this young woman who used sheer grit, determination, willpower and guts to get what she wants out of life! She is proof that there should be no excuses in going after what you want and if you really, truly want something, you will find a way to do it and make it work!
