From elementary school through middle school, Tania Speaks was bullied for having bushy eyebrows. Fed up of the abuse, she tried to cut off her eyebrows one day but ended up cutting herself. It was so bad that she bled and had to be taken to the hospital.
After the incidence, her mother told her never to cut her eyebrows again because one day, someone is going to love her eyebrows. So, she decided to find a more positive to being confident with her eyebrows.
She began researching various natural, organic ingredients and experimenting with them until she created a gel that enabled her eyebrow hair to fill in and also lay down smoothly.
Soon, she started getting compliments from her friends and then, she decided to build a business around her experience with bully and her discovery, so, she launched her business, Brow Boost in 2016.
In 2017, she introduced a line of men’s organic hair growth products called Beard Boost. Her business grew by 60% within the first five months
Amazingly, in the process of building her business, she did so well academically that she had to skip her junior year.
