Daily Inspiration: Meet Khayla Sterling

Today we’d like to introduce you to Khayla Sterling.

Hi Khayla, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Hey hey! My names Khayla, I’m 26 years old. No kids as of right now. Just trying to live my best and fullest life the best way I can. I’ve been working in the healthcare field for about 3-4 years now and I love it!

Al while making a career for myself in healthcare, I found an interest in brand ambassadors, beauty, & modeling. I started to model for a plus-size boutique located here in STL called Honey’s Child Boutique. I wanted to feel more confident after gaining weight. So experiencing that really helped me to be the woman I am today in being confident in my own skin and wearing whatever I please.

Being plus size this day in society can be very challenging. So if I can inspire women around the world to be confident in their skin and encourage them to wear that two-piece, sis, I’m happy! Okay? Lol. But also even learning about makeup and how to do my own, along with doing lashes helped boost my inner ego a tad bit.

Back in 2020, I became a Certified Classic Lash Artist and fell in lovvveee. But quickly, I got distracted amongst other things that weren’t helping me grow as a person and decided to get back to it again this year and got another certification for a different type of lash style called Jersey Girl & Cajun Spiked.

Although I am certified I’m still taking my time to perfect my craft and timing, I’m only doing people I know personally for my practice until I’m comfortable going abroad.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It definitely hasn’t been the smoothest road. From car troubles, being furloughed for 3 months due to Covid, and to life just… lifing!

I’m a strong believer in everything happens for a reason. Everything that’s happened has been a learning experience.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’m currently a Patient Access Representative and absolutely love what I do. I have a couple things in mind of what I want to do next, but I’ll keep it to myself lol. Can’t always let everyone know your next move. Just be ready to celebrate with me 🙂

Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
I like that there’s so much to explore, learn, and do. There’s something for any and everyone.
