"I Do it For My Girls"
While she never gained a college degree, Christina Morris, 23, sees herself as a role model for her two young daughters. "I want my daughters to see that I have accomplished so much without a degree, and that they can do whatever they set their minds to... but they are going to college!"
Morris's business, Imperial Elements, showcases unique, one of a kind beaded jewelry of her own design. On Facebook alone, she has over 200 fans. As a military wife, she became involved with a group of other wives- who all shared a common interest: beadwork. From these 'girls night outs' spawned her love of jewelry making and beadwork.
She may not have gained premises - her husband might be transferred to another base - she considers herself a businesswoman and is proud that her daughters are able to see her accomplish her dreams.
