Chyna Mae knew her whole life she wanted to be an artist and in kindergarten started competing in art shows.

She also had the opportunity to compete in numerous art shows throughout her entire educational career earning her a culmination of awards for a myriad of accomplishments and attended pre-college at MICA. While in school Chyna juggled 2-3 jobs at a time to make ends meet. She refused to give up on her career during her financial hardship and persevered. In 2009 she became an event coordinator at the Hollywood Ballroom for the next 5 years where she discovered her love of helping other people chase their dreams. She later decided to attend the Art Institute of Pittsburgh to obtain her Graphic Design Degree & to pursue her own businesses.
