Ari Takata-Vasquez 3D Jewelry Designer and Entrepreneur
Ari grew up in affordable housing with a single mother, in a neighbor that was statistically uneducated, economically depressed, and susceptible to negative things like crime or drug-use. Instead of succumbing to her environment, she used her developed skills as an under-resourced person, to get creative and find a way to make it work. Ari had to do more with less and hustle harder. Today, she’s an entrepreneur with her own 3 year old business, putting herself through a Bachelors in Architecture, a Masters in City Planning, and happy to be thriving.
