Hi there, I’m Sylvia. I’m a digital strategist with over 10 years experience building brands for non profits and start-ups including my own (CurlsUnderstood.com). I started Curls Understood in 2014 and have managed to build it to a 250K online community. To-date the site receives over 150K page views per month and my social networks have a combined following of 100K. I also have an email list of 10K. My blog has been featured on FOX 5 DC, Allure Magazine, MindBodyGreen.com, NaturallyCurly.com, Buzzfeed.com and Black Enterprise.

I started this blog to share my experience and expertise especially since I’m transitioning to blogging full-time! I’ve always dreamed of working for myself and living wherever I want in the world but didn’t think it was attainable. After researching multiple sites and seeing many other bloggers achieving their financial independence, I decided I would not look for full-time work after being laid off.

I’m asked all the time by readers on CurlsUnderstood.com how was I able to build a successful brand but I have never had a dedicated space to answer all these questions in detail. This site will serve as that space. You can also join my private Facebook group (Online Bootcamp for Bloggers) which serves as mastermind community for active and aspiring bloggers. See you there!
