When you hear of multi-talented individuals you think of Cece Vance. Celebrity Publicist by day and Super Hero to Hair by night as the Founder of "I Am You" Natural Hair Care and author of "I Am You: Natural Hair Handbook."

Motivated by her own hair care journey the I Am You founder became incredibly passionate about natural hair care. She eagerly studied, researched, and learned more information about products and ingredients that were all-natural and would work best for her hair. Driven and focused on how expensive some natural hair products were, she decided to begin mixing her own. After some trial and error, she soon found her mixing stride in 2015. I Am You officially launched in 2016 online and has expanded to include national and international retailers.

Her sense of purpose is focusing on the fact that Life is a journey. Just enjoy every moment of it as much as you can. Of course, you know you're going to hit hard times and that's growth, that's where we grow the most. But hang in there and just stay motivated. Keep going. Follow all your dreams no matter what. Just keep doing it because you never know what age you're going to come into who you're supposed to be. But you can’t quit. Because if you quit, you'll never know. Just keep going no matter what you go through.

What drives her to be an entrepreneur - are three (3) things:

Flexibility:

I love being my own boss setting my own hours and not have to worry about demands of traditional work. Most of all setting my own goals and responsibilities for my brand "I Am You."

Teamwork:

As an independent entrepreneur, I can build my core team by picking the skill sets, talents. My I Am You team members are just like family.

Legacy:

I'm building a legacy to pass on to the future generation. I'm creating something meaningful that’s going to stay with my family for a lifetime.

Her visions are endless and that's what keeps her moving in life, for whatever may come. She said, "Waking up looking at my kids every day drives me to work harder each day and continue to build "I Am You" Natural Hair Line. My new haircare line I Am You was inspired by the women with natural hair who are underrepresented in the market. I want women with textured hair to have great hair days by using great products that actually gives excellent results."
