Kamau's Question:
 Andrea thanks for taking time from your busy schedule to talk with me.  You have a very interesting business story in an untraditional business for someone with your background.

Andrea, can you tell me a little about your background? Like where you grew up, maybe went to school, and the area your business is located?

Andrea's Answer:
I am originally from Belize City and I moved to the USA when I was 28 years old.  I have my Associates Degree in Business Administration majoring in Economics and Accounting from the University Of Belize and my Bachelors in Information System Management from Berkeley College.

Before I came to the US, I was working for the Belize Police Department for 6 years as a civilian processing casefiles and entering it into their system.   My business is located in Queens, New York, and I service the 5 boroughs of New York.

Kamau's Question: Who or what inspired you to take the leap of faith and go into your special event balloon design business? What are the services and products you provide?

Andrea's Answer: My mother and close friends inspired me to take a leap of faith in myself.  They were the ones that were whispering words of encouragement and admiration when they saw the final product of my masterpieces.

My installs/designs are targeted to fit each consumer's budget which includes centerpieces, classic columns, crazy towers that can be personalized with a special message and match the colors of your company and company logos.  Balloon bouquets for milestones such as birthday, Valentine’s Day, Anniversary, Sweet 16 and much more.

Arches for podiums, graduations, grand openings, and as well arches for entryway. There’s no install that is too small or too big that I would not be able to assist you with.
