April was born and raised in Detroit, MI, where some of the world's most iconic entertainers were born. Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross, Bebe & Cece Winans, and many others. Furthermore, Detroiters is also known for their distinctive jargon " What's Up Doe" which means "Hello."Let's not talk about fashion! Fashion is Detroit's middle name. The most iconic fashion trend moments were in the 80s, 90s, and especially the 2000s era, Coogi Sweaters, Pelle Pelle Jackets, Fur coats, rhinestone-studded boots, Gucci loafers, sculpture-French rolls, ponytails, 360 waves. The Fashion in the D is epic, but enough about the D, let's talk about this Divaliciouss chick name April.
Fashion made its appearance in April as a child. Her mom shared a story when April was 5 years of age. "April didn't take naps. Her quiet time would be looking through fashionable magazines. Her mother recalled being on the phone with a friend, she asked if April was taking a nap, and the reply was no, in the room looking at magazines,Both laughed."
Fashion has always been an expression for April but never allowed herself to fully express this side. She worked for many known companies such as the University of Michigan, Chase Bank, On-star, Avis Rental Car, and many others. Although she liked her position, however, she did not feel satisfied.
Working for the University of Michigan for many years, she joined the Diversity Committee. The committee experience taught her how to communicate well with other cultures. She was nominated at the 41st Annual Salute to African American Women in 2013, hosted by Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. She met the first Black Female Astronaut, Mae C. Jemison, in 2014. Granted, all these great experiences had a phenomenal impact on her life and will cherish them forever. However, it was time to enter the fashion industry.
After that, she started blogging and had the opportunity to work with well-known companies like Reebok, Maybelline, Lancome beauty products, and many more.
Finally, a light lit up in her mind that she had to start her own business. Shortly after, HighlyFavoreddivas" was birthed in 2019. She decided that it was time to do something for herself and take a leap of faith.
However, it's been an emotional rollercoaster of indifference, stress, and many other shades of feelings, but it is still standing. She has now decided to go full strength and devote her time and energy to the company and not stop until it reaches the top.
HighlyFavoreddivas... means God chose her to experience life choices. A choice to live her life to the highest potential. To walk in faith and not fear. Set fashion trends. Be confident, even at your lowest. Embrace yourself. Love yourself and encourage others to follow suit.
