About Carmen Veal (the "Hartford Girl")
Moving to downtown Hartford about 6 years ago, I would visit NYC to experience fashion, culture, art, and other fun and exciting attractions in the city.
As a small business owner building my personal and professional brands since 2009, I developed a respect and appreciation for working positively with others and community involvement.
My mission evolved to play an intimate role in Hartford's dynamic growth and encompasses special events production.
After celebrating my company’s 5-year anniversary in May of 2014, I felt the need for inclusive growth that would allow me to combine my talents, and evolve with my community.
Thus, Hartford Girl was born!
This re-branded, yet established network of supporters allows me to share my love for Hartford and talents with the Hartford Girl network.
Additional notes about me:
I have a 12 year old daughter, named Sania, who has autism spectrum disorder. I enjoy sewing for myself and creating tutorials via my Sani Auri youtube channel. I am passionate about highlighting the beauty and versatility in natural hair via the Brown Skin Women natural hair network.
