I first fell in love with modeling when I was ten years old. My family and friends convinced me to try out for my school fashion show and as soon as I stepped on the runway, I knew modeling was my calling. For most of my teenage years, I modeled in Baltimore (which is where I am originally from) and the DMV area. I did photoshoots, runway shows, and even minor magazines here and there. I always knew that I wanted to do more than just small-town shows, so, at 19 years old I moved across the country to Los Angeles by myself to follow my dreams. It’s still one of the biggest risks I’ve ever taken, but it’s been the most rewarding. Read more>>

Back in Spring of 2018, I was approaching the end of my sophomore year of college at the American University in Washington, DC. I was studying computer science and working full time at a corporate IT company that took on federal contracts. In my time in college and working at that place for a year, I realized that I wasn’t on a path that was true to me and that I was creating my life based on what I was brought up to believe was the right way to “do life.” Go to school, get a good job with benefits, work all your life, save into your 401k… etc. etc. Read more>>

We storytellers often forget the story that we began with, our own, is as much a story as those we weave. To go back to childhood many of my teachers may not have imagined I’d be here now. Academic study, in particular math, was an area that obviously called. Having a tumultuous teenage life, as most teenagers do one way or another, I found solace in imagination and creative pursuits, not just acting, but art, drawing, writing stories, directing (aka at age 9 telling people what world we were playing in today at recess). I relished in the unexpected and making people laugh and brought this play and performance side of my character to almost all walks of life. Read more>>

After being at a job where I was unhappy, unappreciated and underpaid, I decided to take a leap and start my own business. I’ve wanted to do this for a very long time (three years to be exact) but I was living in fear. Fear of the unknown. I thought to myself, what if I fail, what if people don’t like what I have to offer, or “you can’t start a business in this economy”. But things soon turned around because I started practicing self-love, positivity and even learned about crystals and their healing properties. I wanted to have growth and evolve into what I consider a beautiful person! Read more>>

Where does my story begin? Was it when I started my TV career at Nickelodeon, or when I became a mom? Was it when I started parenting consciously or when I was a kid in predominantly white private schools? I can’t say for sure when the moment was that I realized Black children are socialized to believe they are less valuable than others, but it is that realization and the will to transform it that has gotten me to where I am today. Just like there is a Black experience in this country tainted by racism, injustice and social inequity, so is the Black experience of childhood, and I want to change that. Read more>>

I was five years old when my mother escaped domestic violence and took me to live in El Salvador with my grandparents. I spent the rest of my childhood there, learning about my roots and attending catholic school. When I was fifteen, my father insisted I come back to the United States to finish high school and attend an American University. Although it was the best decision for my future, leaving my mother was the toughest separation of my life. I moved back to the US with my overly strict father and began adjusting to a new life and culture as a teenager. At 18, I graduated from high school and moved out to live on my own with seven hundred dollars in my pocket. Read more>>

Diva Dionne Character

I was born as a brave girl. One who never thought for a second that I could not do whatever I set my pretty little brain upon, as I have always had a vast imagination growing up listening to the Wizard of Oz on wax alongside my grandfather, who would indulge his ears with Jazz in the front room on Sundays as he read the newspaper. Born and raised in New Orleans, I was surrounded by music and the arts for as long as I can recall. I started singing in church at an early age, which perhaps was the birth of my entertainment career. Read more>>
