Sophia Who? An interview with Tes Silverman

Sometime around this past February, after the publication of Sofi’s Short Stories, I was approached about being interviewed for a phenomenal podcast, r(E)volutionary Woman. That episode aired today! Tes Silverman is the artist behind the scenes and founder of r(E)volutionary Woman. She interviews women from around the world to ask them about the amazing things…

Beauty is in the Eye of the…Beheld?

Okay, Hi. Here me out. Here’s what I’m thinking & I would love to hear your thoughts on it 🙏🏽 Some people’s beauty is just seen for longer moments, and some for shorter moments, but everybody can see at least a passing moment of beauty in everybody, and beauty is in the eye of the…

Nancy Sumari: Woman Extraordinaire

Women’s History Month is coming to an end, and we are continuing our Phenomenal Women Series with power! We will continue showcasing women even after March is over, because there is so much to celebrate, acknowledge, and be inspired by! For this post I interviewed none other than Nancy Sumari. I thank you, Mama Zuri, for…

For Women’s Month: Interviewing Miriam Odemba

Happy Women’s Month! It has been a while since I have written anything on here. There has been much creative outlet, just on other…paper, and on canvas! Yes…much on canvas. I am extremely happy to come to you with this snipet of the interview I had with Miss Miriam Odemba; Tanzanian international model and health…

Ready, Set, Action! Interviewing Seko Shamte

In a post I wrote a while back I mentioned being surrounded by some phenomenal women. One of these women is an old friend I was honestly kinda jealous of, back in sixth grade. She was cool, dynamic, and knew the lyrics to all the songs! (LOL) Our Cameroonese teacher would bring up a song…

Outcasts, Refugees, & Giving Thanks

I just came across this again. It must be time to post it. Some events are no longer current, but the point is still the same. On November 26, 2015, here in the USA there was a celebration. It is called Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is celebrated by many Americans as a day when the ‘Injuns and…

The Seat Next To Her

While looking at photographs for a current project I came across this photo. It made me think. This is one of many women by whom I am surrounded who are intelligent, beautiful, dynamic, fun, and overall wonderful. I have also noticed that most of the women around me are really strong women. They have their own…

Milofy: THE App For Couples. You’re Welcome.

A week or so ago I had the sweet pleasure of speaking with Arshya Lakshman, a beautiful soul, brilliant person, and creator & CEO of Milofy, who also is the first interviewee for my Young & Successful Women Series! We had an extensive conversation in which she answered my questions in detail, and showed her…

Pretzel In Pretzel Out: Yoga for the Mind

The last thing I felt like doing today was a physical workout. I thought about painting, writing, working on my vision board, meditating…but my mind is saying “no” to everything. Well, it isn’t that it’s saying “no”, but it’s more like I don’t know what it’s saying. It feels chaotic in there; in my mind….

Oh Wow! Am I Running?

I should state, from the get-go, that I am not a runner. I am a jogger and a hiker. I state so proudly! 🙂 This is why I had to share this experience with you. It may be a bit longwinded, but it’s because I believe we can keep surprising ourselves with unexpected successes and wish that you may…

Where is the Queen?

Where is the Queen? Does anyone know? Most importantly… do you know? You, you the queen. Do you know where you are? Do you know who you are? The princess looks up at you as she sees you resplendent; in a light you’ve forgotten. You’ve wandered down a darkness that is starting to shroud…aloud… On…
