    Meet The Beautiful Nollywood Actress Who Lost One Of Her Legs.

    Meet The Beautiful Nollywood Actress Who Lost One Of Her Legs.

    This story will move you. Some of the best types of stories I like to read are stories of resilience, of strength, of people who have had horrible things happen to them but still found a way to rise above it. Stories like this I tend to find very empowering and although sometimes, in fact a lot of times, they are heartbreaking stories, the strength of these people is just so encouraging you can’t help but be moved.

    The Power Of Creativity: Mark Rober

    The Power Of Creativity: Mark Rober

    The late 21' st century has witnessed a technological gold rush of astonishing proportions: the headlong and strenuous haste to dominate the online world. This enterprise has proceeded so rapidly that in just a few years, the concept of 'website' has transferred from being a mere database of information, codified in basic HTML, to being a dynamic environment; fast and continuously evolving.

    3 Insightful Takeaways from Michaela Coel's and Donald Glover's British GQ Conversation

    3 Insightful Takeaways from Michaela Coel's and Donald Glover's British GQ Conversation

    These two have so much in common but are also two entirely different people. Eccentric, creative, otherwordly, empathic, original, trailblazer - these words are just the tip of the iceberg when describing these two personalities. Michaela Coel is hands down my favorite executive right now and I have been a long-time fan of Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino, so I knew the conversation was going to be interesting. Not only did it not disappoint but I gained some unexpected insight on how to deal with some of the issues that I am currently dealing with and events happening across humanity.

    Is it on?

    Is it on?

    Is it on? BABY, when I tell you T.S Madison is the truth, and will continue to be the truth for all generations to come. Whether she’s rocking 22-inches, or rocking her crown on the “Queens Supreme Court” T.S is authentic to herself, and unapologetic about it. When I first was introduced to T.S Madison (on YouTube), it truly was a “need a snickers moment”, moment. There is a “Je ne sais quoi” factor about her. I say that with the upmost regard, because you truly don’t know what she’s going to do next. She is constantly reinventing herself, whether it’s being on her own channel, making guest appearances with Rupaul, or advocating for trans rights. Her delivery is SAVAGE! Brutal at times, but honest. She is passionate about her community, and it shows.

    Leaving a legacy.

    Leaving a legacy.

    Chadwick Boseman left a legacy of kindness. He was fighting a battle no one knew about but still continued to be a hero even off the screen. I always think to myself what can I do daily to make the world a better place. Can I write a blog post to help someone through a difficult time? Can I spread the knowledge of what I know in my podcast to let the person who needs to hear it actually hear it? I think the thing that we forget that Chadwick never forgot, is to just go through the day in hopes that it helps someone and not even thinking too much about it. He helped people, yes. But did he gloat about it? Did he wake up everyday thinking about it? No, he just did it. He was just a kind person, a helping hand and someone who never wanted credit because thats what we should all do. We should never want credit, we should just do it because we are decent humans. Decency goes a long way..

    Albert Einstein Quotes

    Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

    Dear Black Athletes & Entertainers: You Are Healers.

    Dear Black Athletes & Entertainers: You Are Healers.

    Last week Sunday August 23rd, a 29-year-old man by the name of Jacob Blake was shot in the back 7 times by a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He was shot in front of his three small children who were in the car. The latest shooting of an unarmed black person by police triggered a rash of protests across the nation. The NBA,which had just restarted its league in "bubbles" located in Orlando, FL stopped all games for several days as the players struck in protest of the continued police brutality towards the Black community. There were confirmed reports that a lot of players came very close to leaving the bubble to return home and join the fight on the ground for equality and social justice. There was a palpable heaviness in the air, and between the racial and political tensions stoked by a racist presidential administration with the backdrop of the coronavirus, the energy was at a very low point. Then Chadwick Boseman, our beloved colloquial King, passed away on the Friday and it seemed to be the straw that broke the camel's back.

    The times I met Angela Yee

    The times I met Angela Yee

    The first time I met Angela I was in disbelief because not often does somebody meet their #1 crush in their lifetime. I received an email saying that Angela Yee would be at the Google building and it was free admission. I remember feeling like: goals!!! Her lecture about the value politics has in business as well as the importance them of both. When it was my turn to take a picture with her I was in shock. I had on sunglasses because I didn’t want to feel too starstruck a black man has got to play in cool at all times!!! She said something funny we both laughed and they snapped the picture. I said I hope I get to see you again then I left the building. I screamed yes when got to the car though I only had 20 dollars left in my pocket it felt like I just hit the big-game jackpot. I have never felt completeness like that before and I doubt I ever will again. I smile and smiled for at least a week or two then I when back to reality but with more hope and optimism than ever. Though I doubted ever seeing Angela again I felt content with my life. Three months went by and guess what? Angela and Run 313 were doing a free 2-mile jog I signed up. Now mind you I once ran half marathons three times a week but I hadn’t run in 2 years because of injuries to my left knee and right ankle. I bought some of Angela’s organic juice online and my knee and ankle felt strong enough to run on for the first in two years. I took off fast at my old pace I was completely burnt out after a half mile and out of nowhere Angela came up on the side of me she heard me cussing myself out for getting so out of shape. She smiled and left me in the dust. After it was over we took this picture the best moment of my life as you can tell by my facial expression. She had completely destroyed me but I was just happy to see her again. After I went and took a shower I laid in bed and started think how in the world was I going to become impressive enough not to put her in the line of fire if I happened to get struck by lightning again and get her number or something. I probably won’t get a chance to date Angela but who knows what life has in store? Either way it’s been one hell of a ride. She’s motivated me to become financially stable more than ever before, be open to love as I never have been, and I saw the most beautiful woman ever to me win-win situation. Angela has made a great deal of difference in my life and we don’t have an elite connection or the universe just doesn’t know it yet. Angela is absolutely gorgeous to me that’s why I am making a fool of myself writing this letter that most-likely nobody will ever read but this gave me and opportunity to share about the greatest experience I’ve had in my entire life. My birthday is September 10 and what better way to start my celebration than praising my favorite person and possibly win something for my short story. I can only have great things to say and be filled joy for one reason, I met Angela I really met her! I’m not the type too ride the bandwagon of any beautiful woman that I see Angela is just different I know it. Maybe we’ll meet again maybe we won’t but in my mind and heart I really believe even through The COVID-19 era I’ll see her again. If she can make a difference in my life without being in my life just imagine what she can do if I make to home plate. Let me dream my beautiful dream.lol
