Today we’d like to introduce you to Verónica Navarro.
Hi Verónica, so excited to have you on the platform. So, before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
My name is Veronica, but everyone calls me Pigments, I came to this country 6 years ago from Puerto Rico, my country. Half of my heart always remained here in this country since my dad has lived a lifetime in this country for about 16 years. I always traveled every year during the summer and Christmas season to spend time with my family. In Puerto Rico, I obtained an Associate Degree in Massage Therapist as well as working as a secretary in the Municipality of Juncos Puerto Rico. When I arrived here, I had to start from scratch, and without knowing that inside me was forming the little person that changed my life and gave light to my eyes, my son who is currently 6 years old. Many moms like me know that we are never prepared to raise a child and how difficult it is. At the beginning of my life in this country, I was starting from scratch, and pregnant without a job and without my own home is an even more difficult process.
Very difficult my process during my 8 months of pregnancy was a high-risk pregnancy, but at the end of the road and in the blink of an eye, My baby was in my arms. I met the light of my eyes which I loved from the first moment I knew he was in my womb. A week after giving birth to my little boy, I had to return to the emergency room with many complications, lasting a month and several days in the intensive care unit. After much suffering, I started to get up stronger every day.
When I thought that all my pain and suffering was over, God gave me one more test: my son was diagnosed with special conditions, and his treatments and therapies had to be attended to daily. While mom struggled in tears to help dad with everything at home and see how he sacrificed for medicines between therapies and instruments for the recovery of our son is when I decided to start working during the nights. Starting from 5:00 PM in the afternoon to 4:00 AM or 5:00 AM, that was my shift for 4 years in a row without being able to enjoy the stages, holidays with the family, and not being able to sleep with my family.
One day during my work shift I came home in tears to ask God to please help me think or what I could do to be with my son at night because every time I left, he was always crying. I remember, between many tears, I heard an inner voice telling me to start preparing Acrylic Powders (Polymers) (Acrylic Powders are products that Nail Technicians use to prepare a full set of acrylic nails). I remember that I woke up surprised, since I was not a nail technician, and stopped crying and said from tomorrow, I start looking for information and educate myself, and that is where my small business was born in 2020, PIGMENTS POWDER CREATIONS which has allowed me a year and a half ago to sleep, share and enjoy my family.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It has not been an easy road at all. It has been a road with many obstacles filled with many injuries, learning, and above all, teachings. I have hit rock bottom, but I have picked myself up and come out stronger than ever. I remember the difficult part of my life every day when several years ago, I was hospitalized for 1 month and several days on the verge of death. I remember when I got out of the hospital, I said if I was able to get up as a warrior. During these months in intensive care, I can handle everything that awaits me. I challenged myself, and here I am every day educating myself and working very hard to be able to bring my clients’ quality to their tables with a lot of knowledge. It was not easy, but my dreams and God helped me to overcome everything.
