THE PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG, IS TO EMPOWER AND INSPIRE INDIVIDUALS TO PURSUE THIER PASSION DAILY AND STRIVE TO BE THE BEST VERSION OF THEMSELVES. AS AN ADVOCATE FOR WOMEN, IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT BEAUTY IS NOT ONLY ABOUT VANITY AND EXTERNAL APPEARANCE, AND TO EMBRACE BEING EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL WITHIN, BEING A “TRIPLE THREAT.” ONE WHO DISPLAYS ACTS OF KINDNESS, WELL VERSED AND EDUCATED, INDEPENDENT, EXUDING CONFIDENCE AND A HIGH SENSE OF SELF, IN ADDITION TO BEING GORGEOUS ALONG WITH AMBITION AND INTEGRITY IN THEMSELVES. I HOPE TO EMPOWER OTHERS TO ACHIEVE TRUE CONFIDENCE AND SUCCESS. NOW, TYPICALLY, I WOULD NOT TAKE ON SUCH A CHALLENGE, UNLESS I WAS HUMBLED BY LIFE WITH ONLY 2 CHOICES; SINK OR SWIM. NEVERTHELESS, I AM HERE TO LET YOU KNOW, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT FOR LIFE TO HAPPEN TO BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELVES. WORK IT BECAUSE YOU’RE WORTH IT!! “DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THE WAYS OF THIS WORLD, BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND.”
