Join us as we have a heartfelt conversation with Tonique as she shares her story of beauty, survival and giving back. I am not too good when talking about myself as I have always been in my community wanting to help others! So, I would love to tell my story! I was diagnosed with MS when I was 12 yrs old and have undergone numerous of medical procedures throughout my lif including Chemo. Always being in the hospital and doctors offices, I grew a love for the medical teams who helped me. I knew I wanted to go into the medical field. I graduated with a Biology degree concentration in medicine and got my first job at the Cancer Center at The Virginia Hospital Center. I meet soo many beautiful women that were diagnosed with cancer and I knew how they felt inside, so I decided to do something about it. I created a "Look Good - Feel Better" program where these women with illnesses could come and get made over! I loved makeup and knew how to apply it, so I figured I could help! This program gave me the instant gratification I longed for and that's where my love a makeup came from, but more importantly my love for "change". Giving these women their makeovers put them in a totally different mood and gave them hope..... ALL BECAUSE THEY LOOKED IN THE MIRROR AND SAW THE BEAUTY!!! I've been all makeup since! -Tonque
