Thanks for stopping by and welcome to Atija styles. My name is Tatiana and it's a pleasure to meet you. My biggest fear in lfe is to be filled with regrets. I came to America as a young Jamaican girl with dreams of taking on a new world and being more than what i saw while growing up on the Island. I thought once I got good grades and stayed out of trouble I would be on my way to success. Little did I know that life was about to grant me several surprises.
I had to grow up real quick, the American way. Education was no longer my key. I needed to earn a living to take care of me. I always wanted to have my own business, my own empire, something to put all my creative energy into. However, each time I started I was hit with doubt and reality. My 9 to 5s never truly allowed and hanging on to my dreams of a degree just didn't allow it. It wasn't until 2019 when I started to get anxiety attacks and depressed once i saw the entrance to what I deemed hell (my job,lol) that I told myself its time to take responsibilty and action. I had all these excuses as to why I wasn't where I wanted to be in life but no solutions as to how I could get there.
Now approaching 33 years,I had to put my big girl shoes on and made the decision to chase the dreams of all dreams, fashion. Still working a fulltime job ofcourse, to fuel the growth of my business. However I selected a job that would allow me to do both. Yup! no excuses this time around. I gave birth to my child Atija Styles and here I am watching her grow.I decided that by any means and discomfort necessary i'll stick it out.
I want to be an example for anyone who believes life's too hard to accomplish their dreams. If i'm speaking to you right now I hope you take a chance on what matters and go for it. I am no longer comfortable building the dreams of others while placing mine on the back burner. I am going to create my own fashion empire where the dreamers and achievers can swag out without breaking bank. Where women stand out and take charge with fashion. I wanna see you be a BOSS in charge rocking ATIJA. Building a brand is great but building a family from that brand is even better. Welcome to the Atija family.
