The "Lone and only" series featuring: Brenda Ray

What does confidence look like to you?

I think it's about embracing yourself even if you don't feel perfect or accepted by the world 

One thing you've learned to love about yourself?

One thing I had to learn to love about myself is that I am consistently inconsistent, which actually leads to more creativity.

What do you love most about making flowers for people? 

The thing I love the most about designing flowers for someone is bringing their personal message into the bouquet, and hearing "you're amazing" when I've created just what they were looking for.

What is the biggest misconception about you?

The biggest misconception about me is that I am mad or upset. I have a hard time looking happy all the time and unfortunately people think I'm mad or upset when I am just lost in thought or concentrating.

What would be your advice to anyone that has to overcome obstacles to live their dreams?

When I first opened the design shop, I read a quote that fit my situation perfectly. "You don't have to have it all figured out to move forward." It's so easy to give into fear and stay stuck when you're facing obstacles but even if you take "one step" or accomplish one thing toward your goal things start happening, also surround yourself with supportive people and trust God to lead you.
