Daily Inspiration: Meet Marshea Oliver

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marshea Oliver.

Hi Marshea, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
When I was 19 years old, I was diagnosed with endometriosis and fibromyalgia. I challenged myself to be upfront and honest about it. This led me to start a blog about my journey.

While going through treatment before my diagnosis a medication, I was on caused my hair to come out in some areas. With that came the birth of Naturally Marshea (Mar-shay).

I went natural and tried to find natural ways to help these problems. I did not realize how many people were actually paying attention to my post. Some asked for a youtube channel and it later came and so did my other social media including my latest blog.

After years of growing, learning, and new diagnoses, I met incredible people and became an ambassador for a few brands. These brands include The Natural Girls Liquid Gold, Endo Black, and a local boutique. My growth is still continuing and I am excited to see where it goes.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
This road has had many bumps and turns.

New things have happened since starting my journey healthwise and it has made things a little harder for me. You have to be consistent as a content creator. With the chronic stuff, I have to deal with that becomes an issue.

With the love and support, I get I have been channeling my energy into other natural things. I have started a garden which in turn can be used as content. I turned my pain into pleasure and use that for content.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a Content Creator. I share my health, hair, and life journey via social media. I specialize in being an honest outlet for people who don’t really know about endo and my other health things. I was a part of EndoBlack which is a platform that helps women who deal with endo not feel alone but seen.

My honesty has made people feel comfortable enough to message me with questions and suggestions as well. As far as my hair I get questions about that too. How I get it to grow and what products I use. I am currently an ambassador for The Natural Girls Liquid Gold which happened from me just being me. What sets me apart there is that I don’t only show the good and I am very animated.

I will make a face in a minute if I don’t like something lol. I still encourage people to try things. My tagline is “Your hair is unique to you” which is so true. I am most known for just being vulnerable and honest. I am most proud of me no longer just having my illnesses but owning them.

I also used to model for a local boutique and that helped to embrace my bloating and new weight.

Is there any advice you’d like to share with our readers who might just be starting out?
Just do it! Take that leap of faith and stay true to who you are. There is only one you. Not everyone can express things how you do and break them down.

People have different learning styles and you just may be the style someone needs. There are a lot of MUAs, Youtubers, Barbers and etc but they have their own styles. Embrace yours and just have fun. Don’t get caught up in the numbers and stay true to your authentic self.

I wish I had known that who needs to see it will. You can’t depend on your family and friends to help you get to where you want to be. It is up to you to stand out and the proper audience will come with it.
