Check Out Chad Rivera’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chad Rivera. 

Chad, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I was born on the island of Guam 😀 Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved art. Drawing, beauty, music. But I would say my heart gravitated towards music. Growing up, I’ve always wanted to be a singer and tour the world. Sharing my music and relating to those around me. 

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?
Definitely not a smooth road. But a calm sea never made a good sailor. Of course, I’m sad of some of the experiences I had to endure, however, I’m grateful, and I wouldn’t change a thing! I’m still growing, and I believe that staying comfortable and never taking chances doesn’t allow a person to grow. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I make music, and I will forever do that. But I also have a soft spot for makeup. I used to work at MAC, and ULTA, and the connections I would make with whoever sits in my chair, are the moments I cherish. On top of that, enhancing the beauty of what someone already has makes my heart happy as well. 

Networking and finding a mentor can have such a positive impact on one’s life and career. Any advice?
Be yourself, as cheesy as that sounds. On top of that, showing and proving just how much of a genuine, caring, driven, and passionate person you are to people will open many doors all on its own.
