Madame CJ Walker not only made history but millions with her haircare products and 16-year-old Paris Mackenzie is following suit, becoming the youngest person to open up a beauty supply shop, Paris Beauty Supplyz, in Brooklyn, NY.
McKenzie, who already had a lot of business experience under her belt, commented on an Instagram post, to help spread the word, “Y’all it’s like I’m living a dream right now! I’m at a lost for words…I’m currently at 111.1k on Twitter. THANK YOU GOD!!! Had to add the address lol: 3211 church avenue Brooklyn NY 11226 @parisbeautysupplyz.”
To gain business experience and knowledge, Paris has been assisting her mother with running a boutique and salon.
“I’ve been helping my mom run her business since I was very, very young. So I know how to handle finances and how to market products in the store,” Paris said in an interview with CBS News.
And as every business owner knows, it is imperative to have the respect of your employees. Despite her age, Paris has accomplished this important feat.
“Paris, she’s like a little sister to me. I respect her. It’s fun,” 22-year-old employee Giselle Ashby stated in the same interview.
In addition to being an entrepreneur, Paris is a straight A-student and has the intention of majoring in pre-med, hoping to become an orthopedic pediatric surgeon.
Despite the fact that Paris is one super busy teenager, she still finds time for what is important-friends. “I don’t really have any more free time, but when I do, I try to go out with my friends,” said Paris.
We don’t know what the future holds for this amazing you lady, but we have a feeling that whatever it is, it is truly going to be amazing! And we cannot wait to follow her journey and enjoy every moment with her.
