What do you do? I am a jewelry designer, student, giver of life, and friend to many. Back in January I took the plunge and started a lifestyle blog called The Moptop Maven. In it I talk about everything from hair, to self empowerment, recipes, fashion and crafts! I also have a Youtube chanel that provides tutorials on how to care for natural hair, and assist women through transitioning - My dream is to be able to take all of my many passions [cooking, photography, fashion, beauty, crafts] and launch a magazine for women of color, as I feel we are underrepresented in all aspects of media. Giving back to the community, and helping my homeless brothers and sisters is also high on my priority list, as I plan on starting a non profit this year which will provide food and resources to those in need.
What inspires you? An easier question would be what doesn't inspire me! I get inspired by long conversations with close friends, traveling, buildings, colors, shapes, insects, animals, music, poetry, and art. I would however have to say that I am most inspired by LOVE, as it is the motivating factor behind everything that I do. Being around creative, free spirits also inspires as well as motivates me. I am a firm believer in surrounding yourself around positive like minds.
Why are you fly? I am fly because I know exactly who I am. More importantly, I am happy with who I am. I am fly because I am constantly evolving into the person GOD meant for me to be. I am fly because I do not let material things define me, and I do not let selfishness dictate my path in life. I am fly because I am resilient!
Advice: Be yourself, learn yourself, and always stay true to yourself. If you have a passion for something pursue it! Don't let outside factors determine your latitude!
