I’m most proud of having my work in an upcoming photo gallery. That’s really big to me because growing up I never won any awards or had anything to celebrate besides graduating high school so this is a pretty cool feeling/experience. I think what sets me apart is for one I’m a female, I’m black, and I shoot film. I haven’t come across others in the DFW that fit into my particular category. Read more>>

Performing poetry is what I do and take pride in. I don’t look at it as a hobby. I treat it like it’s much more than that. I feel people know me for my storytelling with my poems. I always want to do a piece that can relate to someone else and their experiences in life. I may do a romantic or erotic piece here or there, but the majority of my poems are serious in a message, and meant to be personal. Read more>>

I discovered that I had the gift to do makeup as well. I met a Mac artist, her name is Deja, a few months back.

Things change, people move. Champ and I, however, continued to work together and decided to start our own label. Just like any business, it was a tough climb, and we aren’t anywhere near where we want to be. However, we found a bit of comfort in giving back in a very community inspired way. That, in my opinion, is the most important thing we’ve accomplished so far. Read more>>

Making sure parents are keeping us in the loop, just in case as coaches and owners, we are able to step in.

A lot of the exhibits in Dallas are focused on a central theme created by multiple artists. While for us, I’m the one giving the creative direction for all the different rooms. In a way, I’m kind of showing the world the childhood that my partners and I grew up in. We really wanted to focus on something that everyone can relate to and enjoy. Although it’s focused on our childhood, I believe there is something for people of any age and any gender. Read more>>
