Now, AJ is the proud owner of the five-year-old “Nails.Glow” that already has 34 branches. AJ believes that beauty should be accessible to everyone, so she made sure all of her salon’s services were affordable, such as foot and hand care, nail art, massage, and facial spa.

Learn more about her success story this Wednesday (Dec 3) on “My Puhunan,” where broadcast journalist Karen Davila shares what AJ went through life as a kid and how she was able to make her way to the top.
