Rising Stars: Meet Princess Eulogia of the Ngambe Tikar Kingdom

Today we’d like to introduce you to Princess Eulogia of the Ngambe Tikar Kingdom.

Hi Princess Eulogia, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
Thank you so much for having me, it’s my pleasure. By the time I was 25, I had become a celebrity photographer, a mother, and was finding my purpose on this rollercoaster called “life”. Now a few years later, my accomplishments and experience include certifications in different areas that serve various communities. Honestly, It has been extremely hard writing and sharing about myself due to a fear of coming out of other people’s shadows. I am very honored to be chosen to talk about my experiences and I am realizing that in order for me to really flourish in the world, I have to let go of the pressures of being judged for speaking my truth. Between 2007 and 2009, A camera fell into my lap by way of me being on summer vacation on what I like to call “The Deserted Island”. I was always asked if I was/had been in school for photography and my answer was always the same, “no, it’s my passion and gift from my ancestors and “The Devine”. Never did I think that I was being asked because people thought that my work was actually good.

There was a way that I captured the essence of those who posed as my subjects, it almost felt dream-like. That’s exactly what I wanted it to be, a dream. It wasn’t until I was in the middle of a mental breakdown, trying to figure out what was wrong with me, that I understood “who” and “what” photography was to me. “She” was my safe place, my therapist, my friend, and my cheerleader. Photography and I were no other than two co-dependent high school “home-girls”. Honestly, it’s been rough discovering that truth because something that I used as a crutch, unknowingly, allowed me to help so many people connect to themselves spiritually. It wasn’t about them smiling and making everything appear “happy” and for some of us, it offered a way to create cool content before there was even such a thing. I wanted people to feel the emotions behind the “golden shot”. My portfolio includes Layzie Bone & Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Dizzy Wright, Will Claye, Betsey Johnson, members of the famous Jackson Family as well as so many more.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I had no clue that leaving my past relationship and starting off from scratch with two children would become a catalyst for my spiritual awakening. For about three years, living in fear of being located, I remained off social media. At some point before the pandemic hit, I was feeling a very strong urge to help other people who have experienced trauma and adversities. I am now a certified Life Coach after months of training and living in my purpose by working with organizations and individuals around the world.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I enjoy working with people of all ages who are on a path of self-awareness and spiritual growth. Recently, I have been assisting individuals with spiritual guidance, mediumship, facilitating projects, as well as conducting amazing interviews for my YouTube channel. My accomplishments and experience include certifications in Integrative Mental Health, Mental Well-being in Children, Complementary and Integrative Health, and Holistic, Integrative Health, and Crystal Healing.

Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
I love that there is so much diversity in our city, Everyday there is something new going on and fun to look forward to.

I dislike pollution, “please recycle and keep our streets and ocean clean!”.
