My name is Aly Nuñez, I am the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of made by Amara Cosmetics. I am a 22 yr old USMC Veteran (2016-2020) with a strong passion for beauty and the visual arts. I am also a mother to two amazing little boys that are my world, they are my reminder in life to keep grinding for that hustle every day no matter how many endeavors I face in life.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to finally start my business, this has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl looking at all the independent women in the magazines, that never settled for the nine to five jobs. Understanding that I wanted to be my own boss and set myself up to become financially free had really opened my eyes to how I wanted to live all through high school. I knew I never wanted to depend on anyone but my sheer will to keep the hustle going. That's why creating this company was going to be my foundation for a new chapter in my career as a businesswoman and I knew I wasn't going to give up on my dream once I started! I wanted to inspire young women around the world to see themselves as independent, unbreakable and strong individuals. If the Marine Corps has taught me one thing.. it would be that you never give up, you stay true to your beliefs and hold tight to your dreams. To one day become the best version of yourself.
Where did the name amara come from? Oddly enough, I was going to name my second child Amara at the time when I created the company, her name would have been Amara Rose Nuñez. The symbol for our company is a fully bloomed rose in honor of her name along with the main company name as "made by Amara" Cosmetics. However, I ended up having another boy at the last second!! but, if I do have a girl I will definitely be naming her Amara as planned.
Our Motto is "Those who Hustle, prosper" which is based off of my personal belief in you "reap what you sow". I wanted to inspire people to build they're own legacy, and to keep pushing one step at a time. As women, we are genetically strong willed and fearless and that's why creating this brand was so important to show people that no matter where you come from, you are important and you can make a difference. I thank all of you. I am blessed, I truly wouldn't be where I am today without your love and support!
Thank you for reading!
