Hilo teenager Kulia Silva launched a makeup business during the pandemic. The budding entrepreneur will be attending UH Hilo in the fall and plans to get a degree in business.
Lauren Day at KHON TV reports:
Silva launched her makeup business in the middle of the pandemic as a senior in high school.
“I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with my career path, and I just went for it,” Silva said.
The young woman told KHON2’s Lauren Day she never thought she would be one to love makeup.
“I was a tomboy before. I was eight when I [started] playing soccer, and then I tore my ACL in 2018. It was a really rough time for me. I was sad. I was down, but I got into pageantry then that led to modeling, and being around makeup and beauty. It made me… It gave me ideas, and I decided to just try and make my own cosmetic line,” she said.
Kulia Silva will be attending the University of Hawaii at Hilo in the fall and plans to get a degree in business.
