As one of the trailblazing women of 2017 - tell us, what’s your story?
Hi, I'm Ciara! I am from Saratoga Springs, New York and I'm a Digital Marketing Specialist. I am also a freelance model and vocalist with a degree in Theater. I've lived in Los Angeles, CA and enjoy exploring new experiences through travel. I'm a huge horse racing enthusiast and I enjoy sharing my passion for the sport through my lifestyle blog, Ciaratoga.com.
So, what inspires you?
I aspire to live a life that makes me happy by creatively blending my personal and professional goals into one. It's not always easy to follow your dreams and passions but I'm constantly inspired by those that do. My number one role model (and best friend) is my mom. She's not only my number one cheerleader, she impresses me every day as a person and businesswoman.

What is your favorite item to pair with your Helix Cuff?
The versatility of the Helix Cuff is what I like the most about it. I can style it easily for being at the gym, working from the coffee shop, or traveling on the plane.
Finally, you’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
I would be a blue crayon. I think the color is reflected in so many different ways and can be a symbol for so much. The from clear skies to fierce waters... it can go with the flow but is ever changing! That's probably why I wear it so much!
