We had the good fortune of connecting with Calandria Dennis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Calandria, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
I want my legacy to be aspiring & inspiring to future generations . I would like to be remembered as a go getter, very hard working, dedicated , respected, humble person.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am mostly proud of where I come from to now. It wasn’t easy getting where I am. It came with blood, sweat & tears. Moving to Atlanta in 2019 with no plan , getting dropped out of school & no jobs hiring me forced me to become the BOSS I am today . I made up in my mind I would change my situation and not look back & that’s exactly what I did! I took baby steps by using what I already had to get where I needed to be . Ive learned through the process that no matter what you go through , it’s not over, you have the power to change your situation. Anything is possible, it’ all starts with you! I want the world to know that if I can do it coming from where I came from, then anybody can.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them to a good seafood spot because we’re seafood lovers. Ponce city market
A Nice Bar/Lounge

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to shoutout to God first and foremost because he has brought so far & without him I wouldn’t be who I am today. Shoutout to my family , they’re one of the reasons I go so hard, & striving everyday of my life to be successful. Also major shoutout to each and every individual who has supported me in any way!
