Hello everyone, My name is Yazmeen, I am a licensed Natural Hair consultant and the founder of La Co'coa, LLC. Through a short Q & A questionnaire, I will answer the most frequently asked questions about me.
Where are you from?
I was born and raised in New York City. I became a resident of North Carolina since December 1999.
Where did the name La Co’coa come from? What does it mean?
What is your company’s mission?
The name La Co’coa pronounced La-Co-Ka comes from "a feel good place where limits and boundaries do not exist". The (La) derives from my love of the Spanish culture and (Co’coa) represents my love for all things
chocolate. La Co’coa is the name of the company as well as a concept
that means “freedom to be one’s self.” My mission is to educate, encourage, and empower women to love themselves from head to toe. La Co'coa also strives to help women build a foundation that is centered on self-love.
How long have you been in the business? Did you desire to become a natural hair consultant? Why do you enjoy what you do?
La Co'coa has been in existance for 5 years and counting. At first, I did not desire to become a natural hair consultant. I have always enjoyed styling and caring for hair. I have been styling and caring for hair since middle school.
While I was pursuing my undergraduate degree in business, I desired to start a business where I could have the flexibility in my schedule to do something I enjoy. Although I enjoyed doing hair, I did not initially see myself advising clients. It was not until later that I decided to use my gift to become a Natural Hair Consultant.
