I work in Capital One’s Executive Response Department and I am Co-Owner of Crowned, LLC
Did your occupation choose you or did you choose it?
I guess I would say I chose it- I was 22 years old and I had a6 month old so I had to find a job quick. I like Customer Service though, it allows me to speak to different types of people from all walks of life.
If you could work with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
Sarah Jakes-Roberts. She’s been such an inspiration to me. Her transparency has helped me deal with certain things in my past. I was able to come to realization that although I had made mistakes in my past, I could still be used by God. Her story let me know that it’s never too late to make something of your life! She’s such a phenomenal woman of God, an awesome mom, a great wife and an amazing leader. She is definitely one of my role model.
What keeps you motivated?
My daughter. I want to show her what a strong black woman looks like. I want her to know that you can do anything that you put your mind to and if you fail, that it’s okay to try again.
What’s your Black Girl Magic Superpower?
Support. Is that a super power? I’m learning that what you give, you get back. So I just want to keep supporting those around me, especially my other black girl magic sisters. I truly believe that empowered women, empower other women. I don’t believe in being catty and hating on other women, we can all win and I want us to.
Favorite Pastime outside of your occupation?
Hmm, that’s a good one. If this were a few years ago, I would be saying escaping to the beach but now that my life has gotten much busier, I guess I would say the movies. I love going to the movies, to Cinebistro to be exact, all by myself. lol
Describe yourself using three song titles (include the artist).
LOL The three songs I would choose are:
Brave by Bethel - it talks about allowing God to move you from your comfort zones into the deep
Oh and that uptown funk and Bruno Mars song lol it's just fun not to serious of a song and sometimes I like to just laugh sing and dance - I try to give myself moments where I don't need to be too serious
Reality TV. That is all. Aside from the Love & Hip Hop series. lol
Name one thing people don’t know about you.
That I am really an Introvert. I prefer to be by myself. So that’s why sometimes I get distant with those close to me. I’m kind of like a hermit, I’ll come out my shell but I will go back in when I feel like being alone.
You wear so many hats, which is your favorite and why?
I couldn’t possibly choose one. This is not a fair question lol Of course being a mom is the best hat to wear. Coming in real close would be working in ministry.
Do you have anything you’re working on that you would like to share or discuss?
I’m a visionary, when I am not working on anything is the real question lol but I am currently nurturing Crowned, LLC right now. It is my dream to develop a Christian based curriculum that teaches about purity and sexual abstinence. Right now with Crowned, we have jewelry and Christian wear t-shirts but I’m researching ways to expand pass apparel.
DO NOT have sex! Don’t get me wrong I love my daughter and she was born for the time she is needed the most but if I could go back and do it all over again I would. I would have been able to finish school and provide a better life for her had I did things, the right way, which I believe to be God’s way.
What makes you so Notorious?
