'Legendlma' (IG) is a Chief Balloonist for LaMarvelous Balloons.
“Ever since I was a kid, I had this weird fascination with balloons; how they floated, the different colors, shapes, & sizes, etc. Every time my grandmother took my brothers and I to the dollar store, she’d always allow us to get a toy or something that we wanted. Instead of a toy, I always had a bag of balloons in my hand ready to blow up and play with. As I grew older, I took this fascination and morphed it into something that would allow me to showcase my creativity and change people’s perspective on how balloons could be used. When I got to Fisk University my freshman year, I realized there was a dry market for balloon arrangements and decorations, so I launched my balloon business, LaMarvelous Balloons (originally LaMarvelous Balloon Designs). Fast forward four years later, LaMarvelous Balloons is now the preferred balloon decoration vendor of multiple Nashville colleges and universities, high schools, and event planners. My love for Balloon Art is longstanding and genuine; it gives me joy to share my love of Balloons through creations that add fun, zest, and elegance to clients’ events. The smile or look of amazement on my clients’ faces after they see what I’ve created for them is what keeps me motivated to expand my creativity. I am dedicated to assisting clients with making their events unique, and it gives me much honor when clients put their trust in me to make their events #LaMarvelous. " IG - @Lamarvelousballoons

" I've been painting since the 1st grade, fashion came into play high school... when it was necessary for me to paint on old clothes and manipulate them to look new because I couldn't afford to keep up with the latest trends. I love what I do so much, I'm studying Pre-Law at A&T but I didn't find happiness within that....having my own brand is beautiful. I'm actually using my talent and establishing a career, there's nothing not to love about that."
