Still rolling with the New Year’s theme, I am very excited about what is going on!!! It seems to really be the year of the “Open Door” (thank God!!!) Many opportunities have come, and I will be dipping my hands in both of my loves: philanthropy and beauty. With hurricane Sandy not to far behind us, many are still affected in the areas that were hit the hardest. In a few days, I will begin working as a crisis counselor, reaching out to those who still need information and access to support services, and to help them fully recover from the disaster. Usually, after media hype has settled down, the general public forgets about what is not televised, but the work that follows usually extends itself. After the first responders respond, in come the second and third like myself to continue the work of help and healing. I will keep you posted on any information I receive for those you know who may need it.
On a beauty note, I have been selected to be apart of the NYC Glam Squad for the Queen of Comedy, SOMMORE (sommore.com) This trendsetting, highly-acclaimed veteran entertainer is widely considered one of America’s top comedic female entertainers. I am so honored and humbled. What is particularly notable for me, is that I have followed her personal style for many years. As a short hair girl myself, I would look at her and Halle Berry as a kind of far-away validation to not grow my hair, to rock what I know works,and be completely confident and beautiful. I cannot wait, and I thank God for the opportunity.
For those of you who have been following my career, you have seen my grind, I have shared my hustle, and I am transparent about the journey. I have to make sure I write everything down, because so much has happened since I’ve started. I won’t take up this blog post to list them, but I just encourage everyone to locate, identify, and envision your passions. Those are the things that will keep you afloat, that will give you drive and purpose. The things that are happening to me is a direct result of the vision. I don’t know what all the steps entail, and I don’t know where all the steps will lead me. I know however, that they are ordered, and purpose aligned. I also FINALLY did my official head shot, TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!!!!:)
