We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I had to choose between Good and evil; Light and darkness.

What do you do, what do you specialize in, what are you known for, etc. What are you most proud of? What sets you apart from others?
I own an entertainment company. My main focus is branding. I’m a brand ambassador with a focus on brand partnerships and brand development. I’m a model, actor, published writer, public speaker, publicist and fashionista. I’m the momager to industry kiddos. I may be most known for my fashion and my relationship with HipHop. I manage talent with a focus on public relations. I’m a motivator and my purpose is to shine light on the world. I cook vegan and am a member of the cannabis community. I am an energy shaper.

What were you like growing up?
Freedom-loving, straight forward, outgoing with a good heart. I wrote a lot of poetry and I brought different cliques together. So, I was very similar to the woman I am now. I definitely had to learn “two ears, one mouth”, to pay attention and to always have good intentions. Everything else was pretty much more of the same qualities you see today.
