Beauty and fashion mogul Angela Simmons let loose in online mag Everything Girls Love, from her latest business ventures to relationships.
Simmons recently partnered with Indique Hair to launch a wavy extensions line, Bikini
, while continuously creating her own forthcoming clothing line, Angela Renee. The daughter of hip-hop mogul, Rev Run, explains how she was raised to be ambitious.
“Growing up watching my Dad and Uncle Russell’s work ethic naturally rubbed off on me,” she tells EGL
. “Their work ethic is insanely rigorous. I was always told I could go for anything and hard work and passion will take me there. Having great role models around that inspire me has also been extremely helpful. I look at people like my Auntie Kimora in amazement. She’s a business woman, a mother, and fashionista. She manages it all, almost effortlessly–that’s admirable. Beyonce is a role model of mine as well. I’ve seen her build her career from the ground up. She went from being a Destiny’s Child group member to being one of the most prominent entertainers in the world, while still remaining a humble person with a remarkable spirit.”
“I say do what works best for you and your body. I do think you must love yourself from the beginning, no matter what the scale says. It’s a process; make a lifestyle with your eating habits and fitness. Be committed to the gym and have a focused mind on what you want your body to look like.”
