“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” -Alice Walker
Yesterday, August 7th, 2013 I was named VIBE Vixen of the day! It was really exciting and special for me… for a while, I have been feeling like I have been roaming around life without a direction. Ever since graduating from Syracuse University, I have been exposed to a plethora of industries and have oftened wondered if I am in the wrong field.
When being interviewed for VIBE Vixen I realized that I am exactly where I am supposed to be in life. There is nothing wrong with exploring and testing the waters especially if you hold zero ties to definite and serious responsibilities. I am in a great place in my life and I am going to keep pursuing whatever opportunity comes my way, helping other people and continuing to understand that one day this mess will all make even more sense; everything happens for a reason!

What is a Vixen to you: A vixen is a woman who understands beauty is not only about appearance but about being passionate, ambitious and independent. She works hard towards her goals and also empowers other women by passing along knowledge she’s acquired throughout time. Also, she never lets a man have control over her life and over her smile.
